Agree the 780 Classy I bought last week has Hynix, & by changing the the memory voltage from 1.6V to 1.64V in the classy tool, I can run my memory at 1927 Mhz stable in Valley / Heaven / Firestrike regular & Extreme.
Btw I do not get how this 8600 Mhz stuff works.
From what I understand GPU memory is quad pumped, so if I see 1927 Mhz in GPU-Z, the quad should be 1927 Mhz x 4 = 7708 Mhz.
But your 8600 Mhz would be 8600/4 = 2150 Mhz.
I knew the Ti s had faster memory than regular 780s, but I do not think it was that much faster.

All we have is our fellow forum members and their experiences.
I must be pretty lucky with my Classy then. My Samsung FTW did 1800 Mhz, while the Hynix Classy does 1927 Mhz.
I think I am going to try & debunk the looser timings myth today, by the running Valley at same Core clock/ Memory Clock on my Hynix Classy as I did on my 780 Ftw & see if I get the same results.
Will post in you Valley Benchmark thread on AT, as you already have my previous 780 Ftw score in the spreadsheet.
