The way these cards drop clocks at temperature steps, even below 50°C, means lower temps are almost always good simply for that reason. My best behavior was with all the doors and windows open in winter.

After the mod I get perfectly stable clocks and voltages within each temperature bin, as temperature goes up I see it drop clock/voltage down in clean steps.

The way clocks, volts, and power limit throttling interact don't make sense when simply looking at monitoring software's reports. I think things are changing even faster than we can see so the reports don't tell us what is actually going on. Differences is aliasing and/or averaging methods will cause oddities.

If I lower the power limit a lot it doesn't matter what I overclock to, I always see dips. I can set the overclock to the lowest clock it reported dipping to and it will report dipping a bit lower.

My 8K Superposition max clock of 2115 MHz is also my min clock (6033):

But the score directly below mine has a max clock of 2145MHz (6022):

I think most of that really is the power limit, when it isn't temps. Watch the "Performance Limit - Power" in HWiNFO64 or Afterburner's "Power limit", do you see it triggering? I also miss the days of set and forget GPU clocks, until I remember cards that died fast due to thermals (today's cards would downclock) and the general quality of the hardware then. A new "I don't mind if you die" option to take total control would be great though.
