Fair enough but all im saying is I can go higher volts on smartdoctor then msi afterburner. Lots of other cards dont have the voltage tweak, I think its quite good. What is the max volts you can go on yours? im just curious.

No idea, but there are other tools than Afterburner which allow voltage tweaking, such as Trixx (The Sapphire equivalent.)

The best way to overclock these cards is to use asus smart doctor to dial in 1.35 on the voltage menu, then close that program(since the graphics card will lock if you use 2 voltage regulating programs at the same time) and open msi afterburner, or gputool. That's the preferred method afaik.

What bout 6850? Will you be able to do volt tweaks? I know it's not reference but does that affect it any way? Any user reviews will be appreciated... All I see is 6879 lol

I'd rather wait for another option than have to flash a BIOS to my brand new card, regardless of the risk factor.

Wait, I didn't say flash any bios. It works or it doesn't. If Asus Smartdoctor doesn't support your card, just wait until MSI afterburner does in due time.

In my GPU z and I have the newest version it shows me my highest memory clock as 283, it dont go any higher for some reason, afterburner shows the right readings. Furmark shows it only as 283 also. Could some check to see if there GPUz does this and furmark also and let me know.
