Yes, that is the consensus. For my card it didn't work out like that though.
I lowered the voltage to 0.974v and it ran stable at the overdrive limits (800/1000) so I left it like that.
Earlier this year I tried to OC it with afterburner to bypass the OD limits and kept hitting that 824 wall no matter the voltage. I managed to get it to 878 stable in 2d (desktop, flash, video playback) but after 10-15 seconds of 3d load it would get the VPU recovery... then it would run for another 10-15 seconds, and so on and so on... I decreased the OC until I got to 824 (well, 823.7 actually)
Giving the card 1.174v allowed me to put the RAM at 1215 but I preferred to leave it at 0.974v
Still 824/1197 is what, a ~30% overclock performance wise? (+23% GPU, +44% mem) How many cards can get that?
