Say what? ...

The final overclock that was achieved on this GPU was 1480MHz (+120MHz) on the core and a memory clock speed of 8500MHz (+500). The overclockers was able to achieve a stable overclock of 1500MHz, though this high overclock resulted in decreased GPU performance, making 1480MHz a higher .

It happens dude. You get to the point where the core starts to malfunction and your scores decrease.

Seen it loads myself tbh. If I start edging my Titan X toward 1500mhz firstly I see diminishing returns and then I get lower scores.

Yeah very common fella. Usually you'll crap out and get a BSOD but from time to time it's stable but starts doing weird stuff

That is why you always run benchmarks when overclocking. First of all they can fail even if torture passes, second to see if you went too far and actually lost performance. This often happens when you push X99 CPUs past 3200MHz on memory for example. If it is stable it doesn't mean it is faster.

Isn't your XFX 480 the black edition? Mine isn't so probably won't OC as high, but hell I'll give it a try
