haha glad I could be of service! I use HWinfo to give the specs to my mini-monitor, it's been updated a few times recently to add more capabilities. So far I haven't found anything I need that isn't on there.

You're running 2000MHz on that RAM with zero errors? That's impressive. You're about dead even with the 480, kudos!
There IS a video floating around of the 480 nitro, which from what i've read exactly the same minus a phase?
as far as no memory errors, that's in Far Cry 4, my extremely modded Fallout 4 I get around 6-7 per session. But sometimes I don't get any at all. Depends on the playthrough. I'm not sure I feel confident enough to dissasemble my card to make sure everything's seated properly and whatnot. Even IF I decide to void the warranty. I haven't messed with ANY settings other than the fan yet. No under/overclocking or anything like that. At the very least I'm interested in undervolting to see if I could lower the almost 200W power draw a little bit, and see if that helps with my VRM temps.
