Doesn't sound right, especially since temps have no problem staying in the 60C's.
If you apply no GPU clock with whatever MEM clock you want, and the following voltage settings below and please run Valley and see if same happens. (note: your temps might get to 84c - if gets too hot just stop benchmark)
Edit: Power Target 100%
Temp Target 94
I'll be able to play around with it more when I get home, but I can guarantee that those settings won't get my card anywhere near 84C, especially with the fan speed at 100% like I always do for benching. I have no problem keeping the card around 70C all the way through 1.3v, it's just that I get tons of artifacts with the voltage higher than 1.2v. It sucks because it doesn't even crash like it's unstable. I mean, I know artifacts usually mean it's close
to crashing. But this just seems...different. I've had all too much experience with unstable overclocks and this card just doesn't seem right, because #1- I shouldn't be getting artifacts with 1.26v right off the bat when temps haven't even had a chance to climb out of the 50C's at a clock speed that is stable at a lower
voltage, and #2, unless this card is some kind of freak, there's no reason I should be stable at 1267mhz at 1.2v but not be able to gain 39mhz with a whole extra 100mv (again, with temps only reaching low 70C's).
