79 degrees only in one single game which were shadow of mordor on ultra hd textures , those were with 1090 1700 , & 1700 do raise degrees, so if it will be 1600 or lower degrees also will be lowered, even if 1120 will raise them a bit too, right?
Memory does give you a huge boost in FPS, atleast for us with the 1250mhz 290's, increasing it to 1500mhz for me gave me around 5 to 7 FPS, sure it gives me about 2 more degreese in heat;
But increasing my core from 1100 to 1200 gives me about 3 to 5 fps at best and gives me about 5 to 7 more heat again at best.
However, im sure theres diminishing returns in place, push the chips all the way to 1700 might not yeild very much.
You have to find the perfect balance;
Do note ram chips DO GIVE OUT ARTIFACTS if not properly overclocked, and usualy they are the first one to die on you if youre doing it wrong;
Again, 1700 should be on your "max" zone, i wouldnt increase these further;
For the sake of stability i would drop these to 1600mhz and forget about them forever, since the increase from 1600 to 1700 yeilds about 2-3 fps at best.
However the clock, yeah sure, go for 1150 or even 1200;
But again, yours is overheating at 80c in a game, dont think just couse it can do 98c you should stay in the 90 range with it and be okay.
For now 80c is okay in games, im sure it reaches 85 in games like crysis 3, do note that shadow of mordor even with hd textures is not a real good game to stress the card with (dont hate please
Try crysis 3 or maybe even some witcher 3.... im sure those temps with rise from the 80c zone, which brings me to :
Increasing the core to 1120 will def make that card hit 90c... which is not a good temp to keep in games.
Again, those 80c is with custom fan profile ... ?
Whats the % fan speed when it hits 80c in games, maybe we can work around the heating issue...
