I think it was the .1 on the core voltage that made all the difference.

Some questions for you

-Cooling? Water or stock air cooling? Temps?
-450/1200 in 3D only or in 2D/3D?
-No Problems in any Bench, Game etc...
-Revision number bios?

Well, thanks in advance!


Hey "Nox"

Could you do me a favor?

Can you examine the "new" Gainward Bios they provided for the GW Users @ their forum some days ago?

Perhaps there is a different voltage setting in the bios, `cause it`s not a good overclocker. The XFX works good for a lot of People?!?

Hint: Perhaps the GW Bios is good to be tweaked, cause the Fan behaviour is little different from reference: It spins faster than reference when a 3D application is started. --> Louder but Cooler

Perhaps you can check this out , too?

Thanks in advance Noxis
