Mine are under water now. W/ my CPU folding and both cards under load they don't go above 52C. I am also overvolting them by 0.225, which definitely helps w/ the OC.

I cant get mine to go past 75mv with Afterburner (1.087v). Not sure why, even on air I'm not going above 65c folding 24/7. So if it isnt temp based, how do you overvolt them so much more?

I reran my scores after fiddling with my card some more. I was getting some artifacting with OC scanner. Got the core back up to 920, had to lower my RAM down to 2125. Only eeked out another 400 points .

Because the bios is locked by default.

You can find a lot of unlocked bioses in this thread.

Sorry lowfat, I must have missed this post. Just came back and noticed the post because I wanted to check out and see if new drivers were available for my card yet on that site you linked.

I'm on a SC card, the the 'FPB' update doesnt apply to me for clocks, only fanspeed. Ive yet to have the fan speed go past 46% in my case while folding 24/7 (HAF with everything else watercooled), so I'm not too worried about 100% fan speed .
