Yeah the 5700 can probably OC much higher, simply flashing it to a xt is a 10%+? gain. Then again, how many watts do you really need? The 5700 non XT at 225 240 watts doesn't get much more performance out of it beyond that. When you hit around 2040 OC boost core you have to adjust the voltage to get any higher. The limiting factor on the 5700 vs xt for lack of better word is the binning.
Looking at pics of the 5600 xt, I see a 8 pin power connector. Initially google says it's max 150 watts, that doesn't make sense. Some forum says 225watts continuous. Ok now my head hurts lol. Is nothing cut and dry....
