The extreme4 is definitely brown... very visible and noticeable when in a case, looks pretty bad IMO. They really need to bump up the quality on the z87, gigabyte, asus and msi have by far the highest quality boards
Now that I am playing metro 2033 I suddenly have to play on high instead of very high which is the first game I haven't been able to max out.. I oc'ed my gpu at stock voltage, what do I need to do to oc more? I have 2 settings in afterburner I don't know how they work, power limit and core voltage.
You said you have your max stable oc at stock right? How are your temps at load now? If you're in the sixties you've got some room to work. You can set a temp alarm at like 75 so you know if you pushed the voltage too far. Just bump up the voltage a small amount and check your temps again. If they haven't gone up past 75 start bumping up the core clock and memory clock as u did before. I can't tell you large an increment of voltage to go by because different cards handle voltage differently. Google what other people with the same card have maxed out at.
