    our card's mem OC decreases much after GPU is totally maxed out. e.g. 1330 RAM -> 1220, though when GPU is not - RAM seems to be perfect.
    Gained extra 30-50 MHz GPU and max stable RAM clocks after the mod.

    If you guys have golden cards - you're lucky and don't think about any mods. We were not, so we have to find any possible tricks to get as much satisfaction as possible from that babe.

    1330MHz for 2011 is not so bad, don't think we got golden samples.... because we don't have, we certainly don't

    unfortunately it's not the GPU clock, I was talking about mem
    I've mentioned above that our card is a kind of real shame for MSI. GPU = 1180 MHz without additional hardmod, 1200-1210 with mod under LN2 (-100 to -180, +0.2 to +0.5 V). Anyone less?
    Hope there will be a better one in Istanbul -)

    Under that, pretty much under . Our sample, I don't know others...

    From experience I say to not get used to the ideea that the second card is better. It's usually worse

    Haha Matose thanks for the support

    I'd like to believe it could not be worse than our 1180 MHz but.. shi(f)t sometimes happens. We'll see

    As usual, luck factor matters at least as much as overclocking skills do in this type of competitions.

    Your second card is very hard to be worse, I was referring to the 1300-1350MHz guys that are complaining

    1180 is pretty . How hard did your card go on air?

    the problem is not the DC2 or Lightning...both have a very good PCB that can handle top perfomance/frequencies.
    You only need a lucky GF100 and i think you have the same probabilty on both sides.

    Matose, I remember that we played with Aristidis @ 990Mhz on water (35-45C)... Vantage with 1.21, I will ask tomorrow Aristidis for the VID voltage.

    Vid of our card was 1.13v. The card is dead maybe from cold. It was a very strange think, when temp went -160c I have heard a very strong crack and that was it, card never played again.
