    Would like to know what ASIC readings windforce x3 owners are getting and what their oc's are. I'll try and update the OP with the results, really just wanting to see if I have a pup or not :) Keep seeing all these posts about 100% ASIC scores

    Bradmax57 = Asic 78.4% Max Boost 1175 (ish)
    Space Monkey = Asic 100% max Boost 1300
    OCPete = Asic 100% Max Boost 1300
    pgi947 = Asic 100% Max Boost 1365+
    setter = Asic 100% Max Boost 1320
    illuz = ASIC 100% Max boost 1279mhz
    Blackwhite = ASIC 95.5% - max Boost 1296 MHz
    ceptic = 100% ASIC - 1300Mhz max boost
    f1aw1ess = 100% ASIC - 1360mhz max Boost
    remy87 = 100% ASIC - 1306mhz Boost
    Meddie = 85% Asic - auto boost 1124mhz
    kmax = 100% asic max core boost is 1254 mhz
    Devious = 90.3% ASIC Boost 1244
    McBrain = 90.6% ASIC, 1202 mhz boost

    When I had mine it had 100 asic, though I think it's a load of old tosh, those reporting 100% more so, and mine boosted to 1164, so less than yours, had max temps of around 58-60 on hot days, normally around 54 when gaming.

    Then managed to overclock to 1300 on the core :)

    Sorry to hijack thread but ,i have stupid question,but should you remove all the platic protective covers from the sli plugs as i am not using these at the moment and the external connections ,i am only using the dvi ,obviously i took off the one covering pci e connection ,but didnt know if its safe to leave others on ,or if they could melt if the card got hot,sorry if this sounds dumb.:(

    Yes i think i will remove them ,just in case .I left them at first, thought it would keep the dust off, but think dust would be better than melted plastic.

    The 670 windforce I had was supposedly 100% ASIC, stock boost ~1189mhz OC'd to 1365+.

    ASIC does and doesn't mean anything, the logic behind it is good, but it needs more work/research to make it an accurate reading in relation to overclocking. As it stands it doesn't mean much of anything, take my 7970 with an ASIC of 62.4% that overclocks beyond 1300mhz, in ASIC theory it shouldn't get anywhere near that.

    so out of the results so far I have the lowest asic value and the slowest core, max ive ever seen oc'd is 1202mhz (+100core) but it sometimes passes heaven other times it just crashes straight away saying nvidia display driver stopped responding etc, i wonder if a fresh install may help, ive had quite a few cards in before the 670 and although I ran driver cleaner etc i cant help there maybe traces behind especially from mmy 7850's

    Asic value of 100%, stock boost of 1189mhz, oc'd to 1320mhz, (+130 on core). Max temp of 67c on auto fan, in a case with pretty poor cooling.

    Tbh, asic value isnt something i have a lot of faith in. My previous 630mhz oc model gtx 470's had asic values in the mid 60's. Both easily oc'd to 820mhz with a slight voltage increase.

    I would agree but from the replies so far everyone has a higher ASIC than me @ 100% and all have higher default boost and oc boost, my default boost is around 1090 but max i can add reliably is +75 I know it doesnt really matter all that much just seems mines a bit of a pup :D

    85% ASIC here.

    Haven't overclocked it but out of the box it boosts to 1124MHz.
