But if you go back to the original discussion, it started because people kept saying that this is OCN, so overclocked results should be compared. Also the discussion was about golden 7970s being compared to average Titans. Again, no overclocks are ever guaranteed, so those arguments are kind of invalid.
And yes, my Titan was a dud!

1. He said he was returning his card because it is voltage locked (as if to suggest that the voltage lock will compromise his cards ability to overclock because he cannot get the voltage as high as he needs it).
2. I told him "Yes, you are voltage locked, but you are locked to 1.25v which is plenty enough to see where your card will go"
3. Me stating that my card gets x core clock on 1.25v only served to show an example, obviously im not saying that because mine can get this clock his can too. Welcome to Overclocking 101.
1.25v is plenty of voltage for these GPUs. Very few people are using voltage higher than 1.25. Go and read any of the posts in the 7950/7970 owners thread where they talk about their overclocking experience. 95% of them will be using 1.25v or less. The only reason this is still a discussion is because you have not done this. If you had, and you saw all the guys hitting 1100, 1150, 1200, 1250 core clocks with 1.25v or less, this would have sunk into your head by now.
He may have still wanted the ability to use higher voltage than 1.25, so him wanting to get rid of the card for that reason is valid.Edited by criminal - 8/20/13 at 11:50am
