I guess I'll be more welcome when Newegg decides to actually ship my card to me.

congrats on your cards guys. I hope they are awesome. I am really interested to see what the software voltage allows. I want to play with one of these cards so bad.

Why don't you, like, call them up and speak to their CS? Sounds like your payment form had issues.

It does suck that your card was delayed

hopefully that gets fixed.

Well, I lost the silicon lottery with this card (kinda). Got a crappy 63.5% ASIC. Gonna have to put this on water to see any good gains :(

Haven't flashed the BIOS yet. But MSI can go to some dark place down under for this 109% PLimit. Its absolutely destroying any overclockability currently of the card until the PLimit gets sorted out. I can't even push past 65C (24C Ambient, highest fan speed on auto @ 53%) on this card with my clocks (garbage 1162/6488 clocks) with the current plimit.

wow thats dissapointing to hear, the 300% plimit should have been ready to go at release imo.

63.5% asic is weird, i would have thought they would have gone for only higher asic ones :x

Yeah, you win some and you lose some. I've always lost the silicon lottery :(. And I don't have the time to bin hardware to get the best of the best (college ftw). At least this'll accelerate me towards full custom WC in order to see how far I can push this card.

Plus all the MSI DL's give me errors for some reason...

Seems people are having trouble with it. I'm gonna remove it for now just in case. I'll add the BIOS back in when I've determined it to work. Haven't had a chance unfortunately to test it.

Why on earth they would try to charge me over 15k for one order is beyond me. I did, however, get everything sorted out and ended up with a $749.99 charge, $25 newegg giftcard, and copy of splinter cell blacklist. Not too shabby. As for the wait... well at least it gave me time to complain.
The thing about the charges was that they werent showing up anywhere except for through v.me and every CS rep was playing the blame game. I waited so long because newegg said they couldn't really do anything until 48hrs after the order was placed. Ended up working out but still.

Gpu-z says my ASICS core is 82.9%. Don't really know if that's good or not.
Means you have a solid card and whether you put it on water or keep it on air pretty much will not make much of a difference in what you are going to get in terms of overclocks. AKA, you are a lucky bastard.
