I just hope the new card is a decent overclocker. I've gone through 4 HOFs and cherry picked the best cores, so I'll be pretty bummed if it doesn't oc much.
That's pretty wild, as I have had my pegged at 100% for almost a month now. It was running 63C up until last week when I switched to HVC and not it's hovering around 49C. I set my core to 1230MHz and then the power target to 51% on HVC and 65% for any other scrypt coin. I heavily monitor all of my card's watt/khash ratio so setting the voltage around .95-1.0V is the optimal range I have found.
Out of my reference evga 780, 2 Asus direct Cu, the Galaxy definitely has one of the best watt/ratio due to the highest clock speeds at the lowest voltage.
Did you ever update the bios to the latest one Galaxy pushed out?Edited by xartic1 - 3/31/14 at 10:45pm
