    I switched from Precision X to Afterburner for one reason, it auto started up without me having to always give it permission - which became annoying for me. Otherwise there is not really a difference

    Ok thanks for the input. I wasn't sure if one was better than the other in terms of compatibility. The Gigabyte OC tool is, well, garbage lol.

    for most part the programs are same cept for skin difference. i prefer the MSI one casue the over-lay in evga one says "evga precision X" on it is top line which i don't want to see.

    i would make comment on the Overclocking section.
    yea OC was only 80mhz which is 8% they said, but look at this from another side since card runs most time on boost clock which with that offset the card is running almost 1300mhz so OC probably gets effected for that reason as card's gpu is massively overclocked already

    Thats essentially the only difference. Except for me, and a friend with a 670 also, Precision X doesnt keep my voltage settings. As soon as theres any load it goes back to the default voltage setting. Which makes it very difficult to OC with...

    ATM i am +50mhz on gpu so with boost its at 1250mhz, on mem i am running at +500mhz so 7ghz effective on ram. playing crysis2 dx11 ultra pack and high rez pack, around 70c stable

    I can't get my memory OC'ed that high. I can get about +300mhz and thats it. However, the GPU core overclocks quite nicely on mine. +180 currently, with no voltage adjustments I don't think. Maybe 1 click higher. I've gotten it up to about +300mhz, so I was over 1400mhz under load in GPUz

    have you tried higher ram mhz with a lower gpu mhz, the gpu is already overclocked when it runs boost mode as it is. stock 670 boost clock is 980mhz, on this card that is its base clock but 1200mhz on boost.

    Yeah, I have. The memory just doesn't like to go any higher on mine. I actually can't quite get even +300 on memory regardless of core clock.

    i might go to +100 on gpu (10%) but my main goal is to get stable with +600 on ram for 20% on it.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/8nhv2/

    was about to get +600 on ram, but +100 on gpu causes video drivers to crash so stuck at +60 on that atm

    here is current on heavy games like crysis2, http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/zch77/


    edit 2: Is it me or does the 306.23 drivers suck? 306.02 where alright but .23 drivers seem to have graphic lag a times in tf2 and crysis2
