I went through about 10 different BIOS files on these cards until I gave up. Some gave more core, but killed the RAM performance. Others seemed to just not work right. I ended up just taking the latest OEM BIOS and got a waterblock along with performing the shunt mod. The card I kept in the machine and modded runs at 2070 core/16000 mem and hits 49°C core at load. If it ticks up to 52°C due to room temps, it drops to 2055 core. The power draw with the GPU at 100% load during a stress test can hit almost 600W. Under normal gaming conditions it pulls about 360-470W.
