Final numbers on this driver and afterburner beta 17 build. Could probably use more voltage to hit 1200+
Using stock Asus 290 bios.
+50 power target
Low idle @ 35c
highest temp after uniengine valley for 1 hour @ 50c
Core Clock: 1175mhz
Mem clock: 1550.
Anomaly to note:
Underwater with a EK acetal nickel block. 55C highest under furmark, 50c under regular gaming.
Cant get past 1100 without artifacts after a few minutes. Using the beta 17 afterburner file with +100mv and +50 power limit. :(
Testing the memory speed now. Currently at 1350..
