Thankfully, I had done enough testing to get a nice stable OC that I was able to apply to both cards without having to test the second card a millions time. My second card has different Vram and the ASIC is lower, but it holds my everyday OC of 1506/8000 @1.225v. If I up the voltage the second card just doesn't respond like the first. The first one I could bench around 1600/8300. The second card my max was about 1550 or so. The Vram doesn't want to OC at all.
Overall, I very happy, and see no need to upgrade to AMD/nVidia soon. I don't play that many games, and the ones I do....my SLI set up runs them all fine.
(Same can be said with the CPU, but I am looking forward to see what Zen offers up)
I hope you enjoy tinkering with yours as I have with mine. In fact, with my next GPU upgrade, I hope that I will be able to have as much fun as I've had with these cards.
I am, thx
Even though my card has a low ASIC, not sure how low but was low according to GPU-Z, it seems to be able to do 1500MHz+ on clock but not sure i can get the 8000MHz+ on memory, not without changing voltage a bit, maybe some +25mV, kumbuster has proved me this almost 100%, also with furmark, both freeze PC during test if i get memory close to 8000MHz without changing voltage control, strangely neither valley/heaven's or firestrike bench break down i can do 1500clock/8000mem and they don't complain about the stability, not sure if it's that kumbuster and furmark are more demanding then 3Dmark valley/heaven and firestrike bench. Thinking of testing with S.A.N.D.R.A. sys software, i usually trust in it's reports.
Probably won't be testing this during the week, weekend is more lightly.
According to what i can check, i'm at work atm and can't check men chip on the card itself, i have revA1 of 2014 manufacturing and everything points it being a samsung mem
will check when i get home, don't know how i forgot to check that xD i already knew about the different mem supplier/manufacturer.
