They do that too but mine does not, I noticed this card and my old card ran at full power all the time not sure its because I have turned of C-State in bios or if its because I use 2 monitors or if it have anything to do with the energy theme you use hopefully someone can come and enlight me

This is a nice article about the general method to OC a GPU. By no means is it extremely detailed, but the method is correct.

Asus Sabertooth Z77 and i7 3770K

Not sure why the WEI score for the drive is low though.

All HDDs are like that, my high performance drive performs the same, I am actually pretty sure if your drive is 7200rpm, its guaranteed to get 5.9 on the WEI :P. You really need a SSD or a 10,000 rpm drive if you want a higher score than that.

Download AS SSD and open the program. You don't have to run the assessment, just post a snip of the open program.

Download AS SSD benchmark 1.6.4237 - FileHippo.com

What is funny is I re-ran it three times the other night and it kept coming back at 5.9 for the disk, figured it must be reading one of the spinners for some reason, but it shows the SSD as as the primary disk on the WEI page.

Re-ran it again just now and it reads correctly,

Okay,this is not a debate or a chance for everyone to tell me I am wrong, this is just my take on stuff. I now have to return my GIGABYTE board for the SECOND time, Ganjiry knows about the first time where the one dimm slot didnt work,after it got returned they sent me a "brand new" board and its been 2 weeks and now that board gave in,pc just didnt decide to switch on anymore, so I started testing everything, starting with psu,and ended with the motherboard itself,and after hours of test it came out on a dead motherboard,luckely I still have my old Maximus Iv extreme board and 2500k cpu, so I placed the memmory on it and connected all the stuff again,redid the WC,and now after a format all is well and temps dropped on my gpu's with 12degrees! Dont ask why I am shocked too. Anyway so that is the second dead Gigabyte board in a month! So if I cant exchange it for an asus at the store I am going to take it to the farm and have a little target practise on it,besides gigabyte has the gun thing on the mainboard so it will match with a few bullet holes in it.

Itherway I am done with anything gigabyte makes, I know some here love gigabyte and have never had troubles,but personally I will just stick with republic of gamers and never go back to gigabyte again.

Sorry for the long boring post.
