Recently ive been seeing runs with people doing over 200mV on LN2 bios, looking forward to seeing if they last or not. Also on some of those single card 200mV runs to get them over 1500mhz havnt been all that better then my 1492mhz core run on +116 graphics score wise... not sure why their risking it!
Im splitting my loop to get the 3930k's heat away from the gpu's soon when my LD cooling phase case gets here. Will be head hunting the top 2 then
I've been running the LN2 BIOS since the day I got mine (back in June/July) which is up to 1.26v (more when OCing) and there's nothing wrong with mine. Done a few runs at 1480mhz/7200mhz at 1.42v and it didn't hurt the card either. Not saying down the road that something won't happen, but still, we've had these cards for months, with people running all sorts of crazy voltages and not one
person has said anything about degradation or one dying from pushing it too hard. So, they must not be as weak as Nvidia says. I don't push mine as often anymore though, kind of just sitting back and enjoying them at this point. But, I'm not afraid to keep pushing because I have a 3-year warranty, which I won't even need because I'll be upgrading before then anyways.
So, I say, push it till you can't push no more
Then just slow down and enjoy some games after you've had your fun. I'm almost positive you'll be upgrading way before you feel any degredation. Haven't seen even one
fried DCuII or Lightning yet, and there's a lot of them out there, with some crazy voltages/clocks on them as well.Edited by dph314 - 11/18/12 at 7:09am
