Hi all, like title says i'd like to overclock this oc edition further. The only problem is that i cant seem to adjust core voltage in afterburner. I already edited the .cfg file for unofficial overclocking eula etc. But that did not do the trick. So i tried with Trixx, and the "vddc" slider was already maxed out on stock settings, so could not put more voltage in that utility either. I can only get a mild overclock from 1150 to 1210 core clock speed. Any further and i get artifacts. Since 60mhz is not very worth it im really sad. Since the temperatures only reach 68celcius on Furmark full load. So can anybody help me to reach a higher clock speed by raising my voltage on the go. And if somebody knows the safe max voltage that would be great also. Thanks in advance!! Ps. I have a feeling the gpu is locked, not sure since i CAN lower the voltage in trixx just not higher

It's already OC'd with a very substantial OC...  I'm not sure you're going to get much more out of it.  Don't forget, the base clock of a 270x is just 1000 MHz

do not expect every card to be able to run at the same extreme speeds

if you are that performance hungry get two video cards on the problem

And this is why I buy cards with no overclock. Because it would have taken the fun out of getting my 7950 from 800mhz to 1150mhz.

Fun sure it is, but mine runs alot cooler with stock fans since it has 3, and it doesnt even make a sound at full load. Plus it looks way better then a normal 270x  And your sig says 1100mhz, i can get is to 1200 stable as hell

Yes i know but i have got mAtx am3+ and there is no dual 16x pcie out there from what i know, only intel has got those mAtx dual pcie16x. I think its a shame to completely change my cpu and mobo its a budget build but i just got it. Guessing i will just gonna love it for the next years untill im gonna upgrade then
