Default Re: why did my score get worse after overclock

when overclocking your existing 59xx setup, especially using rivatuner, you must reboot after setting the overclocked speeds, as rivatuner does a stress test which prematurely triggers the throttling condition. Rebooting resets this triggered condition.
I have a flashed 5900 Ultra at the moment, and it gets really hot in my case, so I'd like to keep it cooler. Would this Asus BIOS still allow me to use my VIVO?
