Can this get added to the O/C chart on page 1?
Does anyone else think the O/C is shader limited? I'm sure my core could go faster but don't think the shaders can...
Is your core actually running at 774mhz in the hardware monitoring tool? I ask this because in my experience with a 65nm gtx 260, the core clock will never exceed a 2:1 ratio with the shader, no matter what. By having the shader at 1458, the max core clock would be 729mhz which is exactly half of the shader clock. Trying to raise the core clock any higher wouldn't change a thing. Riva tuner or precision will still show the clock changes but in the hardware monitor it will remain the same. Gpu-z will also show what RT or precision show, but the actual clocks are what the hardware monitoring show.
My shader clocks are 1566mhz and my core clock is 783mhz. If I raise it to 800mhz, it will remain at 783 even though it shows 800 elsewhere.
