yeah on a £120 motherboard, so I think i'm doing pretty good!

yeah tried literally everything and my temps are maxing out at 65 with 1.424v in realbench

Still voltage is a bit high I don't plan to go above 1.36v and I think i'll hit the 5ghz mark with it, at least I hope. Depends if the performance gain is worth it, I don't see a massive amount going from 4.7-4.8. Your overclock is still okay, not as impressive as mine but yours is clocked higher normally anyway. Plus yours has a higher tdp. I'm pretty sure I read that the i5's overclock higher than the i7's in some cases

Use mine it won't do any harm. It should be at about 1300mhz core when you start it off, then manually add +100 in afterburner. Then test it and see what you end up getting. if it's worse than your current one switch back to the factory bios and try that one, and if that one is worse then revert to your 1418 bios.

My TDP hits 99% when i give it everything
the only difference between our bioses is that mine allows my card to draw 425W, while ur bios only allows for 225W, and 350W max, this is why ur TDP is always at 90%+, also i noticed something different in ur boost states:

and why a higher power limit in bios may be capping my card?

Right, you don't need to draw 425w. Drawing more power isn't going to do **** for maxwell. I can raise my power but I can't get higher clocks, neither can you. So it's pointless having it that high.

All I changed in that bios was disabling the auto boost. If you look in the common tab entry point are all #0 and the boost clock says 1405. The stock boost clock is 1405mhz, I don't know why yours is 1380 when mine is 1405. Just try my bios and see if you can overclock higher, if not then you're out of luck. You're not guaranteed too get better overclock than a reference card by the way, that's not how it works. You've either damaged the card by ******* the button on the back, or have a bad bios. either way the base clock on this card at 1405mhz is still much higher than the 1200 or so on the reference model, and most of them only hit what we have. Others? won the lottery. Just because you buy this card won't secure you winning the lottery.

Just try my bios and see what you get.

Is your card under water or custom loop?

Also your 1500w psu is overkill for your system, why waste money on something that big?

Not only that as he is using 3.3Ghz sandy bridge i5 which will bottleneck his GPU in many games unless he's playing at or near 4K resolution.

Mine 2500K@4.8GHz was bottlenecking that 980 ti in many games at 1080p.

Almost all games at 1080p and above become GPU dependent and the CPU will become almost irrelevant at that point unless you are in SLI or Xfire. A 2500K should be good for 1080p, it's been tested with the same ram speeds (2400 ddr3 and ddr4) and the Sandy is not too far behind. There have been tests on here but they were using 2400 Mhz vs 1600 Mhz ram, which would definitely give better min fps to the higher clocked rams.

For the most part yes but there are places in some games where you will get slowdowns due to CPU.
Also low minimum framerates are caused by CPU.
I was getting slowdowns like that in GTA V and Crysis 3 and few others where my framerate was dropping way below 60fps and GPU usage was going down.
And that was with 2500K@4.8Ghz
