Got this card when I built my current pc about a year and a half ago so I thought 'why the hell not' and came to these forums for a bit of help.
I'd like to think i'm pretty knowledgable about pc's and their 'bits and pieces' but i've never had such a stubborn piece of hardware in my life.
Basically, it has a miniscule factory overclock of 10mhz on the gpu and nothing on the memory at all.
Now I bought this card on the absolute proviso it would overclock like a beast due to the triple slot cooler that by all accounts is actually very good at keeping the card quiet. But even another 10mhz on the gpu gives me artefacts all over the place on the heaven unigine benchmark followed by the swift crash out and gpu recovery.
I know it's out of warranty, not that that would matter, but does anyone have any advice on getting any extra juice out of it? Afterburner and the (shitty) asus overclocking tool won't let me up the voltage beyond what it was set at (1.175v). Setting the fans to 100% doesn't do anything as the card is completely stable thermally and all i get is earache when the fans are set that high.
Do you reckon I just got the duff card in the batch?
