I am curious what ASIC you got.
That clockspeed & voltage combo is awesome.

Also since you did 1420 with yours can you tell me if you had to raise the Power limit above 50%.?
If yes then at what volts.?

Grab a cheap DMM for $25 from Home Depot or Lowes. Running a bench through with artifacts is known as a suicide run for a reason. I don't plan on "benching" until I get this under water. A run of Valley here and there to test stability, but I'd rather play it safe. Once it's under water, it will be a different story.

I too consider artifacts as not stable.

I was just trying to determine if the card was worthy enough for me to spend the money on a custom loop.

Asic 77.9% and power limit at +50 all the time since I'm on ln2.

Thanks for the swift reply.thumb.gif

Looks like your ASIC is on the high side.
Highest on Hawaii is I think I saw someone with ASIC in the 80s, that would be a killer OCer.

Seem like ASIC is more accurately relative to performance on AMD side than NVIDIA side.

Lower asic is usually scales better with custom cooling. At least it did with 79** series. There are some that believe asic is relevant and some that don't. FTW420 may have some insight. 60-70% asic 7970's were beastly.

That is what I believed too.
But my 72.1% ASIC isn't any good, no matter how much voltage I give (trust me I put wayyy more than needed). Maybe I just lost the lottery or maybe I just need better cooling.

Also, that would mean you just let a golden card slip by when you returned your 70% ASIC card.

I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but EK already has a water block for these Lightnings.
I checked and Performance PCs will be ordering them next week.
I'm just worried that the warranty will be invalidated since it clearly says that the cooling system may not be removed from this card.
A rather silly thing for MSI to do since practically everybody checks how well the TIM is applied on these cards.
I may sell mine anyway as the 295 x2 is more my speed. It was only a rumor when I bought my Lightnings and now it's a fact.
Thinking of stepping up my 2 GTX790 Ti K|NGP|NS to a Titan Z, too. It was also only a rumor when I bought those cards, as well.

Lol, I know. Seriously though, there is more to it than just asic% and comes down to luck of the draw. I had 2 other cards that were low 70's that were dogs as well. Also, I really haven't seen any other 290x do as well as the Lightning on air. I'm surprised they are doing 1225-1250 on air under 70*.
