But, I have it running 1700Mhz locked. Heat is an understatement. -_- If it was winter, It'd do 1800Mhz easy but temps are just too high for it to hold that stable at the voltage I want it to. 1.065V is where I have mine at.
But yours is liquid cooled. In my "hot spot" thread you said your temps were around 65C @ 1800Mhz. That really isn't hot, and you know this. With default settings, mine ran at 79C. When I unplugged 2/3 fans on my case, it ran at 84C and more stable (but Jeebus be cursed it made my basement hot) (and it still crashed... just significantly less).
I looked at the box for my 7970. Pricetag: $ 679.99. I'm squeezing every penny out of this sonofabitch. Played some games with it tonight. Not disappointed.
