Skynets BIOS should be 1.212v... unless you changed it?
EDIT: Nvm... I forgot you had to set it manually... rofl
You should be able to get a lot more than 1200mhz with the skynet BIOS.
One thing I noticed guys. The stock BIOS allows the vcore to vary wildly. I was going from 1.087 to 1.2v when I originally set +78mv in Precision and benched it, which resulted in artifacts.
When I flashed skynet's BIOS, the voltage was flat stable and allowed for a higher OC.
I was getting artifacts at anything over 1250 originally, and with skynet's BIOS, that went up to 1300mhz.
I plan on stripping the heatsink tonight and ziptying an H100 to it for the heck of it, because of the 75C I get at load with 100% fanspeed in BF3. It's a monster die and put's out some serious TDP, equal to that of the 290X.
I'm just super paranoid about stripping off the heatsink and voiding the warranty so soon... argh!Edited by HighTemplar - 11/9/13 at 3:05pm
