I have hit the end of the sliders for MSI Afterburner. Going to have to find a way to raise the limit as I dont think that I have hit the end of what this card is capable of.
Have the same card, mine is overclocked the same as yours ROOB, but I get that overclocked with the stock Catalysts. I experimented with AB and found that I could indeed take the card higher, but in order to do so I had to adjust the voltage upwards(not locked on my 7850 2GB), and I didn't feel comfortable doing that, really, as the real performance gains were minimal after 1.05GHz obtainable under stock voltage (28C idle, ~70C under max load.) AMD is getting good yields with these gpus.
