So not a big overclocker, or at least that card wasn't

Hopefully that's just a result of them not unlocking voltage for their overclock. Otherwise we are just about to have a reversal of the 680 vs 7970.

my 780 OC's to 1200/1600 when boosted voltage not unlocked.

xD not risking unlocking the voltage, my ASIC quality is 80.6% and this high of an OC staying ice cold... no reason to go any higher imo. at least not until I try water or something.

Actually unlocking voltage and doing the LLC fix will result in higher overclocks at 1.212 and lower too. I couldn't maintain 1215mhz on stock vbios at 1.212mv but now I can do 1254mhz at 1.212v with vdroop fixed and can run 1215mhz at 1.75v. I don't break 83c on my top card and stay in the mid 70's on my bottom card when running 1254mhz too.

Remind me how well other cards overclock on stock voltage again?

my card is the twin frozr, it doesnt break 60 celsius, and im not unlocking voltage and getting highers temps for another 54 mhz on the core :) thanks tho.

That's pretty good, I run 1263 with 300 added on the memory but that's at 1.24v but temps never get above mid 70s (ACX Cooler)

Well cain just posted a 39% base oc with no extra voltage. My 780 does the same too.
