Pro tip, don't.

Gain is nearly non existant in real use cases and you do risk bricking the card. EVEN though the only difference is the boost clock range / manual OC. You stand to gain about 5% perf.

If you use MSI Afterburner, how much range do your power target and clock sliders have right now?

When you have the card in hand, post pics of the white stickers on card back or card heatsink before plugging into system, then after plugging in card get a gpu-z screenshot. Post clear pictures here

One sticker shows A8G and then the other has OC8G... I don't know what an A8G sticker should look like... but def check what BIOS is on there now and how GPUZ reads it. Might have gotten lucky.

Someone forceflashed a different bios to it



Back up your current bios using gpu-z, do you have an intel core i cpu or a secondary gpu and multi pcie 16x slot motherboard?

We are going to get the card back to stock

Here are stock files





OC files



Power limit removed, LN2/Peltier overclockers


More oc files



Yea weird, i switched it out for a EVGA 1080 tho maybe its bugged.
