1. Cheers for the confirmation. I've seen people talking about 25k graphics scores and just wanted to make sure. 2. I've only checked in MSI AB, but I'll try some other apps and GPU sark, too. It's worth noting that sometimes after a reboot, the issue is no longer present, but as soon as I enter 3D, the card only downclocks to stock 1607MHZ, rather than dropping all the way to idle clocks. I haven't been able to find a direct, repeatable cause, as sometimes off a fresh reboot, it stays at that clock, to. GPU shark looks useful. Hopefully it's not Origin or something causing my card to boost to (non-boost) 3d clocks. I don't have an MSI card (Inno3d Twinx) but I use a Corsair Rm750x and I get no coil whine at high FPS (300 or so), or GPU OC (mine's not super high, but 2050/5500).
