Haven't played with the Core Voltage again as I couldn't get any more of a overclock on my core with the voltage increased without a driver error.
(On an off-topic - sorry to deviate - What is your guys opinions on this card vs a AMD 7950 Boost? I see too many different benchmarks/results and I just want to make sure I'm getting the best bang for my buck)
Edit: Hmm.. something going on. Ran what was stable but with the +12mv. Benchmark crashed on start up and froze my entire system. Such a shame, highest temps I am hitting is 62 degrees.
Been looping through Metro 2033 benchmarks, this game needs to be booted in safe mode for me to play even on stock.. driver issues maybe?
Any other good benchmarks for overclock besides the Uniengine ones?? I hit run on those and they don't even start.
When any VGA is OverClocked ALL electronic components getting the OC stress.
Of course the most most important is VRM and GPU.
In many VGA cards the GPU very well is cooled with excellent coolers, like Gigabyte or MSI..
But in many cases the VRM is not so well cooled, and when you set higher GPU/Mem Clocks the
overload on VRM circuits is making them overheating.
Although you read low GPU core Temps the VRM probably is burning in hell..
From what I read from internet sources
(Please correct me if I am wrong) the only manufacturer
with GPU/VRM temp matching due to proper cooling is Gigabytes PCB.

Im stable at 1280/1875 as well without touching voltage.
Don't think I'm getting much more then that, card stays nice and cool too
Be nice if it was voltage unlocked.
Your Clocks are great. !
+1300MHz on GPU core is very nice but very unstable for most owners in Club.
The extra +12mv is nothing really so "important" you probably gain 1-2% more performance.

I got a really bad GTX 760 card from Asus. My ASIC Quality is 72,2%. I can get only to 1215 mhm stable with boost on the core and add 300-400 mhz on the memory. When i benchmarked there is a big coil whine noise (it's 2x louder from the fan when 95% O.o) and the temps are high. My room temps are from 29-30C and the card is 42C at idle and reaches 76C with no OC. In another forrum i saw people with MSI and other brands of card with high room temps their cards are 30C on idle.
Interesting part is that when everything is on stock when i benchmarked that card hits 1124 with the boost. When i changed only the V from 1,200 to 1,212 the card OC itself to 1134. Haven't touch anything else, only added the 12mV.
Your ASIC Quality is in Average range ( My own VGA is 68.2% if you like read my post #781
The poor OC you mention is not bad at all.
The default clock is 980MHz.
The MSI Hawk with all OC potentials it possesses probably is 20% faster from default GTX760.
Considering the Gaming performance of your GTX760 @1215MHz you are not far behind
mostly in the range of -7% -10% (From MSI Hawk).
If you are satisfied when Gaming no need to worry.
But if you bought your VGA to run benchmarks then you are going to notice the difference.
As for temperature the GPU must have more then ambient.
This is most natural as it is impossible to have less with air cooling.
If ambient is 30C your GPU core idle should have from 31C to ?C depending on PC case, Air Flow and VGA cooler.
The Coil whine is at least annoying, as most Club member have noticed.
But it may go away after a while ? !

Unigine Vallry / Haven GPU Clocks so far are incorrect.
Don't take them in consideration.
As for HD7950 is better or not from GTX760, YES in some games but NO in others.
But in the near future, considering the great success AMD/ATI has made
by putting APUs in next generation Consoles XBOX ONE / PS4,
the upcoming games are probably will favour AMD ATI VGA owners !
I have read that ATI will launch New 8000 Hawaii series GPU in October,
namely same month the BF4 will launch ? ? ?
Lets hope our GTX760 will keep in close performance.
It will be nice if we can use an infra-red thermometer to read temperature
precisely in any VGA PCB spot.Edited by sakisvga - 8/9/13 at 5:40pm
