Glad to know it is not only me. Also, sorry but I can'e comment on your suggestions as I am not familiar with those products. On my gaming laptop I replaced the GPU die paste with IC Diamond and the pads on the VRAM and VRMs with K5 PRO and it significantly reduced my temperatures making an extreme overclock 100% rock solid. I don't plan on modding this card at all because the cooling solution is so good I never go over 51C with 60% fan. Thanks for the suggestion. I will try to use maximum performance to see if it stabilises the overclock curve for me.
