Does this automatically mean its a bad chip? I damaged the IMC on my old 760 on accident after I went back to stock settings but left the ram at 1.65v on accident which lead to a difference of .6v between the ram and the IMC. Anyways, my old 760 would idle at stock at about 1.1 or 1.0x at stock and this one is idling at 1.25x. I already stress tested it for an hour, at that 1.25x voltage on the stock cooler (OCZ Freeze TIM), loads got to about 74C in my NZXT Phantom, which isn't that bad considering what the stock cooler is. I just hope when I go Megahalems and then water I can get this puppy up to 4ghz. Can't really try it with the stock cooler.
