Absolutely no Perfcaps in GPU-Z and I've done multiple runs through Superposition 4k and Heaven and have been playing Ghost Recon Wildlands for a couple hours with no issues. Might be able to either get a higher clock or drop the voltage even more. Haven't tried that yet.
BTW just an FYI, I learned that if you select a point in your voltage curve and then press the "L" key and it will lock it to that bin. I've found that it does still drop a bin so lock it on the next point up that you are aiming for.
exactly my clocks in the 1v challenge. Very nice. I have found that if i lock to 1.05v at 2063, i can run supo 4k with only 1 green blip in the whole run. So I assume, 1.04 (havent done it yet) would be the completely non power limited voltage for supo 4k on our Aorus'. We hit the jackpot with these two! They are both 2100 cards when watered.

i just keep a second profile that's exactly the same except unlocked and has the "fanstop" working, and is on optimum power in NCP, so i just switch profiles on AB after gaming/benching and it instantly drops to 240Mhz and goes silent. I didnt like the unlocking/relocking method as it sometimes effed up my curve. only takes 2 seconds this way, and no screwing it up. And the fans remind me to do it so i usually dont forget.Edited by Slackaveli - 4/24/17 at 7:06pm
