What have you done to your particular set up? Looks like we have similar-ish gear
I have a 3930k at 4.4Ghz (slower than yours) but my 780ti is an EVGA Classified. I can put a huge amount more voltage through it than a standard 780ti, which tops out at 1.21v - I believe. My Titan had a NCP4206 voltage controller and that was able to be 'hacked' into to deliver more voltage. The 780ti range (including the new Titan) are modified in the power delivery so the voltage hack on the 780 and Titan's doesn't work (again, I believe).
The Classified can go very high on voltage - I should be able to bench on my water set up at 1.4v and this should allow core clocks of over 1400Mhz if the silicon lottery works out. The reason my score is higher is due to 3 things - I have a modified bios (no real power limit, unlocked volts), my set up is water cooled so temps are not an issue (yet!), and it is a classified card so I can use the Classified Software Tool which allows crazy voltage (1.65v) on the core.
I'm a lazy Sunday bencher though - MyDog and Khemist both have Classifieds and put me to shame. In my defense - they are harder than me.
If you dont mind me asking, how do you plan on water cooling? Ie ( not a standard heat transfer) im a refrigeration engineer and been looking at options for a while now. The best two ways I can think of which are completly over kill are having a water bath that are usually used for fizzy machines or having a keg chiller( just chills the tube work). Either way iv guessed I require it to be above 0 degrees to stop condensation as itd be a right royal pain to stop that in the case. Both options can handle that with ease so you might find a keg riged up in my lounge. There is always the peltair options and stickingnthem to cpu blocks (lol) but id rather stick with the devil I know

My #6 spot with 5575 is bellow your #5 spot with 5385, seems legit, lol.
OP forgot to delete my 7950, 7970 from my 2x290 bench.
i sold my sapphire vaporx, and got an asus directcu ii top r9 280x, and got 100 points with a touch of oc
Score: 5098 / Mini Classy build - Intel 3960x @4.8 GPU 780ti Classified @1490/8200
Recieved my new toy
Score: 4678 i7 2700K@4,9Ghz - GTX 780 Ti 1358/7900( stock Voltage )
what a pity, theres no Voltage-Softmod for the Ti's :/
Your card is awesome. 1350/7900 stock voltage (i can only 1300/7200 stock voltage)
If you had 1.5v like me you can do what you want .
Ya dat wud b awesome, but unfortunately theres no softmod ATM
With my previous card,780 , i hit 1306@1,315v...so m happier than ever^^ but i paid the regular onlineprice for a pretested ti to get that chip + hybrid from amazon
my r9 270
What cooling are you using on the Classy?
Would love to try some 1.6v runs but I need to keep these cards alive
Yeah reference Titan/780 PCB once you approach 1.35v and especially 1.4v they will go pop. I never exceed 1.26v on my 780.
1502/7800 780 Classified -> 3770k @ 4.5Ghz
I run 1.4v daily
Gets me 1400Mhz-ish clocks which is handy when playing on 4K.
insane clocks :O wish there was a softmod for the ti's :-((((((
There actually is, it's called Classified
Now, now seriously. I kinda hate that Nvidia locks down every single SKU and gets away by using cheap components in their PCBs.
ATI has higher board standards, look at how beefy ref 290/290x are.
Ya, i was thinkin bout the classy before i bought mine, but the coreclock i recieved with mine now, was too tempting xD i will probably hardmod it in the far future or let sumone do this 4 me for now im good with it , there are less games at the moment I'm interessted in - only 1's will b Watch Dogs, gta 5(prevented myself from playing gta 5 on ps3 or watch any "new stunnishing video" in web), AC Unity maybe and my absolute favourite Witcher III ! the card is clocked to 928 in general(no boost) and even thats enough for any game. for the desktop i use nvidia inspector feature: multi display power saver - then it runs with 324mhz - and EVEN THAT is enough to play FIFA 14 highest ingame settings(this test happened coincidently)
1542/7862 3770k @ 4.5Ghz. Think this is the end of the line for me, was starting to get some artifacts at the end of the run.
Its because of Nvidia greenlight. Because of that, they can put the minimum on their reference gpus.
And why is greenlight in place? Its so that retards who have no business clocking and tweaking their cards wont blow them up. Less hassle for Nvidia and its vendors.
Want to do anything beyond greenlight should get non reference cards like DirectCU, Matrix, Lightning, Classified.
