My Brothers bios ROCKS! Keeping everybody happy and with full support!

.Yes on temperature wise, not so on the OC! By average the same OC is achieved both on air and on water, water gives you the edge on increasing voltage and clocks while maintaining temperature!It is essential to keep the VRM's cooled properly
.Very much truth!
Then it is just silicone lottery from there.
For anyone interested. My card seems to be 1306Mhz core stable but I backed it down to 1293Mhz as it gives a higher benchmark score in Valley.
Anyways quick list of my specs.
Card: Zotac AMP! GTX 780
Core: 1293MHz +165
Mem: 3402MHZ +400
Temps max I saw: 32c with EK full cover block.
I am very pleased with the results on my card. I just want to say thanks to everyone that shared all this great info in this thread.
Well ASIC score is related to power consumption and by association to OC, what is to be kept is that the higher the ASIC the less leakage the chip has and less voltage is required to
sustain core clocks! As for OC, rule of the thumb says: higher ASIC, higher OC!
Mines can do 1400mhz but at a whopping 1,4v and are only 69% ASIC!
Lower ASIC = OC better on water + voltage
Higher ASIC = OC better on air AND OC better on water + voltage
This is MY take on this!
