Last of all, would it be possible to modify skyn3t's BIOS and up the voltage to 1.25v? I don't want to apply a higher voltage using the Classy Voltage Tool whenever I turn my PC on.
Update: Just ran Valley and it states my 780 Classy is running at 1300Mhz. Hmmmm...
Unigine Heaven benchmark also reports 1300Mhz at +190 (using skyn3t bios) on the core using EVGA Precision.
780s use 13 Mhz bins. So if you are above the bin, you get dropped down to it. 1300 Mhz is in the 1293 bin, so your card runs at 1296. Heaven and GPU-Z don't read this correctly. IIRC the first page of the 780 ti owners club may show the chart if your curious.

I think I'm going to settle around 1250mhz and call it a day! Flashing to skyn3t with boost enabled to see how that is.
Also, is ftw_2002 the same as xti? Are they better than skyn3t's? There isn't much info on them on the OP on page 1.

XTi, FtW2002, and evga's secret bios are all the same IIRC. I can't remember who verified that. If not, they are VERY similar. I don't recall ever gaining anything going from FTW2002 to XTI to the latest EVGA email bios. I can't recall anyone else either getting anything different from them.
Skyn3t has several, they all are similar. He builds them off what is already out there which are the above. The latest is probably the "best" if you need to crown one in regards to the TiC. It is built off the official evga bios that you need to email them for.
I run the latest skyn3t with no issues on a TiC. Have no real gains from previous releases either from him. The main differences in skyn3t releases has to do with how the power target is handled (and how much) along with boost settings.
For the regular Classy, I think the second to last and the last bios he released are the one's most classy users use.
