You guys that haven't tried the latest MSI Afterburner, give it a whirl. I thought my second card couldn't do more than 733|1756. Turns out it just needed a voltage bump. Now both are doing 797|1900 with zero problems.

Ya they were sitting around playing poker, that's right. You got it all figured out my man, good job.


Oh and since you seem to know it all. Tell me, when exactly did the driver team get. their hands on some reference 400. series cards to test? You know for an absolute fact they were sitting with cards to test drivers with physically for over6 months? Please point me to that link if you have proof. Thanks.

I never said I "knew it all," smartass. All I did was offer my opinion.. the same as what you're doing.

But, ok.. if you want proof the card's been around for a while, here was a working sample back in Nov, 2009:
