To get that I had to up the voltage to 1.075 in MSI Afterburner. Because this card uses a larger heat sink design the fans rarely go above 60% usage. I could push it further but with my ageing QX6700 I doubt I would see much difference.

I think Gainward have shed there skin because this card defiantly deserves the name Phantom, only slightly overclocked from a stock card but can be pushed much further than most on air. It is a meaty little beast.
