From what I can tell from the voltage required for the clock speed, the 290x is going to reach that performance under ln2.
Everything that you have stated above,unfortunately, is based on false information. Every single word...
290x is no where near a water cooled bios modded Titan, let alone a soft volt modded Titan.
The Titans that you have mentioned are not zombie Titans at all. There is no hardware mod. I think people keep confusing the software volt mod to hardware volt mod. Everything with the software volt mod is reversible 100% to stock. Anyone who is serious about max performance who has water cooled Titans is running a modded bios Titan with soft volt mod. I would advise any 290x owners to stay away from bench off thread, unless they want to be embarrassed and humiliated. You all got to go find a soft volt mod and a modded bios before start benching with people on that thread. I am not being factitious.
Ln2 and hardware volt belong in a different category altogether.
