Since I didn't have the chance to test them on water yet, on 95% fan speed, 120%PT, 100% voltage, +110 on CC and +250 on MM it gets around 70ish°C and stays at 2101, so I expect - IF a change of thermal paste helps and putting it under water that it can perhaps keep 2114mhz without clocking down to 2101.
The cooler card is about 68°C with 95% fan speed, 120%PT, 100% voltage, +70 on CC and +250 on MM, but hard locks like 10 seconds after it hits 2101, so 2088 seems stable, but due to temp it drops to 2076.
However I've only tested it with Valley, other applications may vary.
What worries me is that the better clocking card boosts less, I guess it's due to the temperature? Although it behaves differently with the voltage as well. The lowest I hit on the cooler card was 1043v, while on this it went down to 1031v.
Also I'm not certain whether the temperature difference is caused by a bad application of thermal paste or really just silicon lottery. Going with the cooler chip may overall be the better option although it doesn't clock as well. Going this the hotter chip may be a win if the temp can be lowered, since it oc's better.Edited by NeedMoreJuice - 9/19/17 at 7:16am
