Default MSI R9 280X - Voltage Locked, not the best of clockers!

Hello enemies and old friends, it's been awhile! Damn AMD brought me back . Also went through a number of hardware changes, ASRock Penryn1600SLI-110d, Q6600 @ 3030MHZ, Palit GTX260(730/1485/1200), long since gone!

Anyway, this is my new card MSI R9 280X which I'm still running through it's paces and to be honest I think I would've liked more voltages. Even through msi afterburner and a special config the damn thing will not go over 1.2volts, which is against most of the reviews.

Furmark also hit about 95C as an OC with no artifacts, though gaming never ever gets that high. Think it's about 63C in BF4. I also ran into many black screens through both FarCry 3 and BF4, which I think was down to my overclock, even though it passed torture tests and valley/heaven.

UNSTABLE - Black screens, driver has stopped responding in FC3/BF4. Would either crash when moving or crash/freeze as soon as I opened up any menus.

Core Voltage - +100
Power Limit - +20
Gpu clocks - 1140 ( any higher and artifacts )
Mem clocks - 1700
Fan - 90%


STABLE thus far : Got through about three rounds of BF4

Core Voltage - +100
Power Limit - +20
Gpu clocks - 1130
Mem clocks - 1550
Fan - 85%

Welcome back.

At first I thought, whoa, he predicted AMD future GPU naming!

Dunno what to tell you on topic.

Still not happy with AMD enough to risk switching over, but someone here must have the card.

OC the core first, leave the VRAM alone until you find a stable core OC.
