Well through learning/educating myself, and getting to grips with the details on the mobo settings, i just ran 4.2GHz 20 min prime stable.
Thermals are still teh same and to high, might be the thermal solution between the cores, and the IHS..
What i learned about and applied where : svid control, svid voltage override, PLL overvoltage. and before you go on google to look them up in wanting to explain things, i can do that myself :P
Still spiking 90+ C on 1.31Vcore 1.9VCCin, 1.2 cache voltage... i dont like it.. to darn hot.
I'm sure you can undervolt the PLL by a few notches...
Here's my card running at 1403Mhz and 8Ghz VRAM. Firestrike benchmark, 1st run. I flashed the card back to stock BIOS since I need to game at anything above 1400Mhz. Will benchmark at 1500Mhz when I have the time to flash again.
Damn, do a bench with custom bios as well. That is damn good score. Oh and post it in the other thread.
Weeeellll right now im just running 4.0GHz with 40 Multi on the cache at adaptive voltage and the rest auto and xmp regulated. im also running the EPU and other power regulating features. if i cant get higher ill just run it more effeciently right. Im thinking of looking into skylake when it comes round.
