Just ran a benchmark at 90% speed kept it below 58 the whole time big difference.. Now if i could only figure out a way to get these weak clock speeds up

Now that you've dropped the temperature, you should be able to push the voltage just a little bit higher. See what 1250mV does for you. If you just can't get it stable with that, you might've hit your limit with non-extreme cooling. Also be sure to check a hardware monitor to make sure the card is actually running at the voltage you specified. I've had to fight with that before. Not too long ago, I set mine to run at 1225, but it kept dropping down to 1200.
