Cruise on over to the owner's club if you haven't already!

Best mid-range card.

You ran at 1080p extreme? What is your score?

Overclocked or stock?
This all stock but with an undervolt on the gpu.

Only reference will be noticeably cooler and perform just better if temperature limited, i.e hotspot around 110c but a non reference should not be so far from the frostflow cooler maybe slighly worse in temperature and not much different on clock UNLESS being at the limit of the hotspot


I think it will help a good deal. We'll see. I don't like running the hot spot above 90c. I guess you can but I don't feel the need. Hoping to push it up towards 2100-2200.

Plus this card has 2 bios's so there is very little risk so kind of a no brainier for me.

Of course while I push things I try to keep it reasonable. 1250mv is a lot of heat but not really that much of an overvolt that I would be worried about hurting the core for some short term tests. I would not run it like that long term for an extra 50mhz. Plus I think I can reach 2100 with 1225mv if I wanted but thinking I will just limit myself to 1200mv and see what I can do.

I am curious how this card stacks up vs others, will be interesting to compare it vs the fresh stock from B&H as well.
