He switched back to a different driver and it resolved his issues - One from MSI, which I think was the 13.12 as well. He has found that when overclocking supplying extra grounding seems to help his OC ( He is running 1400 at +300 on his Benching air setup (subzero ducted modded AC unit ) he is pushing 1450 and he is at 1700 on RAM. His 4770K is pushing over 6GHz 3D with a custom cascade LN2 solution. Plus I would say he is a pro at air cooling lol. If it involves modded AC units, ducting, K|ngp|n F1 pot, blow torch, and other electronics I think that is apt lol.

that's insane...although i admit i once thought of doing a custom AC cooling on these gpu cards lol...but the compressor should be placed outside the house or the wife will file a divorce ;-)

anyways, i'm just here to play and to know the limits of the card i own...lost interest in doing extreme stuff
