    I was using my right arm but was hoping there some kind of "volt mod" to make it throw farther...

    HINT... VOLT MOD....

    I mean what are your system specifications? Can you scroll up and click on the UserCP tab? Edit a signature and install all your system specifications? As mine here is in green. You can choose your font size and color.

    I was joking at first. I'm sorry I forgot. It does take a little to get your first signature to post. Your core clock is to high already. I was going to suggest to try 790/1100 but you will be close at 785/1095MHz
    Nice Sig. Now if you don't forget your username and password when you post it will make it easier for us to help. Sapphire makes several models I was thinking you had the double slot Red Crockett Card?

    I cant get my memory past 1000 without artifacts. How much does the memory clock effect a games fps? I was thinking the core clock does most of the work so I mainly tried to overclock that.

    I was also wondering can you modify the fan speed for a certain degree, for example when the gpu is a 60C the fans usually at 30%. I wanted to know if I could make it so when the gpu is at 60C the fan is at.. say.. 45%.. that way my gpu will never reach higher temps like 80C
