    Yah, that's for the link, been waiting on that for weeks now, even though the SLi thing is dead, my favourite game supports it, just hoping Anthem supports it I will be off the grid for a few weeks if it does.

    Looks like I have been shafted, after reading someone could not get the link to work because its a 4 slot link. Most mothernoards allow for 2 cards with the space of a 3 slot for the NV link connection. so NV again with extremely poor design. So not happy, I should have read up before I ordered.Problems, problems...

    You are doing things the wrong way around IMO.

    Set it to 1900 @ 887mv. Then underclock the ram by 400mhz.

    Do a before and after in Port Royal. Make sure it's Port Royal and not time spy and tell me your scores and temps before and after. Make sure you use the same fan profile on both.

    Memory makes zero difference to gaming power so you can underclock memory which will cool it and not effect performance at all. Using higher clocks on the core will give a massive boost to gaming performance. So you should see lower VRAM temps and faster performance if you do what I suggest.

    Interesting! I didn't actually think of trying this. Worth experimenting with for sure - cheers!
