ok, I got trixx loaded up, and after a lot of reading around, and playing with different numbers. I've got it completely stable at 1250/1450. I kept getting a driver crashed and recovered error. I have the vapor-x with the elpida memory, and after quite a bit of reading that memory WILL NOT work over 1500, and some people cant even get it that high, so after lowering it down, my errors stopped and was able to take the core higher. I was able to get the core to 1300, but there was some artifacting, and i'd rather not have any of that. so 1250 is where it's staying. in gpu-z my avg volt is around 1.25 with temps in the mid to upper 60's. i'm happy with that.....but now what I can't figure out is why, in crisis 3 i'm only getting around 80% gpu usage.
