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.
I know some say the 380W GLAX BIOS has loose timings. This is not necessarily a bad thing as you might be able to OC the VRAM higher with looser timings. What BIOS did you find best for VRAM, timings wise?
