You have to install a "Gaming App" to get the reviewed speed? Lame.
I don't see this as any kind of a big deal. Anyone that is using some sort of monitoring software to see what their clock speeds are is smart enough to know how to oc a card.
Really? This card is whisper quiet for me. By far the most quiet video card I've ever owned. MSI's Twin Frozr fans are the best.
90°C VRM temperature . Sure it will reach 100°C inside a case.
If you put a second one of these in SLI isn't the top card blowing the hot air onto the bottom card essentially heating that card up?
What's your vcore? Does the BIOS disable Boost? Thx.
What waterblock did you use on this card? I noticed EK says it's a visual match for their block. How do the temps compare from water to air? Thx
Thanks for response! Disabled boost is what's keeping me from trying that BIOS. Not sure I'd do better than current settings (1120 clock, 1264 boost). Also, sort of worn out re: dealing with heat from raised vcore over past few summers.
I've been thinking really hard about picking up this card - I really prefer Nvidia over AMD, even though I have the 290x Lightning now.
