Chinesethunda you just plan on using these for normal gaming correct? No week-long nonstop crysis running or other constant load programs like folding? If for just normal gaming then I think you should be fine at 1.087v and probably even 1.1v too, but any more than that and I would start to worry about the lack of VRM cooling on these cards. You can see the VRM sinks I mentioned in my deal thread for these cards. If you got VRM cooling on these cards then you could pretty easily run whatever the max volts are in MSI AB or until your core temp got much above 85C whichever came first.
I like using the program OCCT and running the error check GPU stress test. I would overclock the core first, 20 mhz at a time, until you get errors. Then back off a little, you can run the error check over night to make sure its very stable.
I have always left the shader clock linked to the core clock. The shader is always double the core clock.
Overclock the memory after you do the core. Again run the OCCT error check overnight to make sure there are no errors.
When are you getting these cards? I want to hear how it goes.
just got them, right now they are SLI'ed but I was concerned because after I installed them and it booted up, I BSOD'd without warning but idk why. should I use msi kombuster to test them at all or just use occt and maybe haven and furmark? not sure which i should use to test what.
