I actually just ordered this card the other day, and I'm doing some tests on it tonight, so if you can hold off, I'll tell you my environment variables, and what the best scores I could come up with were
My system stays pretty cool, so yeah, this'll be a fun challenge
Just an update...
I forgot that I'd told you that I was getting the card (distracted by attempting overclocks, etc.)
I just re-did a new burn in for a second one of these cards tonight, and am going to be testing some different clocks, but one thing that I can tell you off the bat is that the voltage is locked, so there's going to be issues with it immediately just because of that.
So far I've gotten it to run at 850core, and 1150mem stable, but I'm not sure what else will be accomplishable. I'll update you more later as I come across data.
Disk Drive 1: Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200RPM drive
Disk Drive 2: Western Digital Green Series 500gb Drive
Dvd Drive: Don't really remember the brand.
Keyboard: Logitech Acess 200 (Seriously can't beat this keyboard. Waterproof,a nd 24 programmable keys for under 30 bucks - Provided you can even find one anymore.)
Mouse: Logitech Anywhere MX DarkField Mouse with unifying receiver.
USB Devices: 1x I-Pen graphics pen, 1x Mouse, 1x KB, 1x Printer, 1x USB Power 92mm Fan that I have mounted to my desk to cool down my mouse hand - wired it myself, so it uses all 5 volts of the port, and another 2.5volts from a second port.)
Ambient Case temp Idle: 17-22c (22 was with my heater running and an 80F room temp)
Airflow Temp: 17c-22c
CPU Temp Idle: 23-25c
CPU Temp Load: 40c (almost no fluctation)
GPU Temp OC Idle: 45.0
GPU Temp OC Load 55-61c
GPU Temp Non OC: 36-59c
Okay, the final reviews are in. After many hours of testing the max stable that I was able to obtain was the following
*NOTE* I ran it at these settings as these are typical fo my gaming sessions. The Aliasing in 1080 is so minimal I've never been concerned with it.
Overclocking Software Used: Sapphire Trixx
Monitoring Tools: Sapphire Trixx, and HWMonitor Pro
Benchmarking Program: heaven DX11 Benchmark V2.5
Resolution: 1920x1080 windowed
Stock Clocks 775/1000/1.150volts
Min FPS: 18.1
Max FPS: 67.5
Min FPS: 27.1
Max FPS: 86.0
Temps fluctuated +/- 1 degree hence the ~ (About symbol)
While these results may or may not be typical, I've provided all information necessary to achieve the same, if not better results.
I'm absolutely positive that with a higher power supply, high end motherboard, and third pary cooler you'd be able to achieve clocks higher than, if not the same as these with minimal modification to your system.
