I'd be very, very, very curious to how low you can get those VRM temps and how far you can push your card.

well the vrm temps are sitting around 27-28 c at idle the core/memory is sitting at around 26 c

as you can see from my sign this card overclocks great

haven't used afterburner , just using the xfx voltage tweak software

max 3d voltages 1.1625/ 1.15

Those VRM temperatures are quite low at idle. What about full load, say OCCT stress testing?

how loud is the fan on full load? My 4850x2 sounds like a jet taking off.
