Wow that would be pretty sweet so have you figured the general difference in heat from one another temp wise how much lower are the temps on current chip vs the older one
Truthfully, I'm not sure you can figure it out. I'll have to think about it. The biggest difference between the two is voltage. But, voltage/temps are close to the same. As close as I can tell you is 4.5 on the other chip during AIDA or Prime was 1.256 4.5 on this chip is 1.136. That's a big difference and a big difference in Heat too. I ran AIDA for an hour today at 5.0. And yes, it did get right at my limit. The other chip did 5.0, but I wouldn't even consider cranking up Prime. 5.0 was 1.512 on the old one and 1.376 on this one.
