Ok, this will work just like the CPU poll, only for your video card if you have it water-cooled.

Remember: The choices refer to the difference between highest on air and highest on water.
No additional overclock
Less than 20MHz more
20-40MHz more
41-60MHz more
61-80MHz more
81-100MHz more
101-120MHz more
Over 120MHz more

In order to make this poll the most helpful, let's only report what is “stable” (passes any test repeatedly: SuperPi 32M, occt, all 3DMarks, etc.) and also does not cause any visible artifacts.

Since most of our specs are already in our sig, we can also report the following:

Highest “stable” overclock on air
Video: 540MHz GPU, 1050MHz video RAM (GPU voltage: 1.45V)
-- Equipment: Stock heatsink

Highest “stable” overclock on water
Video: 610MHz GPU, 1300MHz video RAM (GPU voltage: 1.78V)
-- Equipment: Maze4, BIX III, MCP655 pump, 1/2" tubing

Redo! OC a card by a gig? Can't wait for those days...

I have nothing else to contribute. The first thing I do nowadays when I get a vid card is to take the heatsinks off. I'll delete this post in a little while.

Can normal users post polls now?

Wait! . . .

I asked Krag if he could fix those options. They were accidentally taken from the thread "Poll: How much higher could you overclock your CPU on water?" . . . I sent him a pm but I don't know if he got it.

So I take it for now people are voting for the options in the first post in the same slots at the poll... so Aidenswarrior really didn't OC 400-600mhz extra on the GPU.
