Power EDIT: Maybe..just maybe, if the Aorus Extreme owners would flash the F3 bios of the regular Aorus (with .57 end), it may result in clocks similar to us (arguably superior) regular Aorus owners. Anyone willing to do the deed?
THAT makes so much more sense!
Google lied to me. I was beginning to think that I had lost my mind.

try just topping it off at 80%. I will say, though, that I found the difference in performance for 80% fans to 100% fans to be far more of an improvemnet than you'd expect for 20% fan increase. It hits some sort of a sweet spot of cooling ability there. Since my case isnt silent, (I use noctua F-12 industrials on custom curves) , 100% almost perfectly matches my noctua's at 1500Mhz. And when my cpu gets over about 60c the noctua's kick up to over 2000 and are louder. It only happens in burntests (thank god), but when those noctua's kick up to 3000Mhz (at 79c on cpu) they sound like a ps4 with the fan glitch lol.
I would recommend upping the power slider to max, that wont hurt you at all, it doesnt mean , like, "full power", it just lets the card stretch it's legs as needed, totally safe at 125%. then, on memory, unless you see some crazy artifacting (you'll know it if you see it, trust me), you can easily hold about +180 on them in afterburner settings, and that gets you over the 500Gb bandwidth mark, so it should be well fed at that #.

We also have similar performance. Is that the BIOS number that you have? BTW if you need to dump a BIOS (I always make a backup of mine) you go into GPU-Z and then next to your BIOS version. There will be a little arrow next to it. Click that to dump the BIOS. Your screen will flicker which is completely normal.
yeah, i had "known" all this time I had f3 bios, up until i copy/pasted that very number into google and it said F4 bios :/, weirdo google.
Yeah, I ordered mine from Newegg on release day at about 10am Central standard time that morning, and as I recall you did the same. Neither of us woke up expecting it to be in stock lol. We got gooduns.Edited by Slackaveli - 5/4/17 at 3:11pm
