Depends on the card, luck of the draw really

650 / 1404 / 2050 should be fairly easy

Some cards can make it in to the 700,s on the core and 1500s on the shader, also the mem may well go in to the 2200s

Is it the 65nm or 55nm version? Core 192 pr 216?

65nm has voltage change via software, where 55nm will require a bios voltage mod,

I think it should hit 700 on the core pretty easily as with shader ~1500, but I find memory is the hardest. Personally, I can't hit high with memory with my 260's even with single card configuration.

55nm can change voltages?! How do I go about doing that? Or does EVGA provide a bios for the 55nm cards?

Dont think 55nm can change voltage through software

If you want to change the voltage on your 55nm

Extract the bios from the card, edit it in nbitor, change extra voltage to 1.18v

Then flash it, that should do the trick, but it increases heat and such so make sure your temps are in check if you want to do it

Alright thanks! Found a little guide via Google search. I'll give it a try!
