Dude yeah I think me and you have the exact same model, mine is from BFG too, sad to see them go. Yours is not overheating is it? If it's overheating and like going to 85c, then a good fan will get you higher. If it's staying cool and still unstable then maybe sb voltage too low? IDK why I think it helps but it seems to.

Crysis benched with volt modded 285s (hardmodded, no software voltage control for 285s)
Hey that's a good idea bro I was having "Go to guru3d.com and grab some modded drivers" in back of my mind all along but didn't decide til now. I will definitely be spending some good time trying out drivers today since the latest driver aint always the best.

I can't wait to run dual cards in the near future. If I wasn't such a wuss about electrical stuff maybe I'd try to read up and do a volt mod, amazing stuff! avg fps 100 on that benchie that-is-insane
