That is just smexy. A 580 capable of reach 900+ mhz on the core? That's absolutely mind-blowing. If only I wasn't so broke... :(

nice.

tell me, brother sky, how would a manufacturer go about finding out you used a soft method to lift the juice ban on their board?

also, did you check the power consumption with said overclocks and limiter off? if you did, sorry to ask :p

speeds look good. good jobbe.

There are certain aspects of the design of modern GPUs which can't really be discussed at length. Such as the BIOS' ability to log certain settings and any modifiers applied.

I checked the power consumption in Furmark with the limiter off. It was higher. Past that, I see no relevance of testing with the limiter off since it did not affect performance or overclocking ability
