Great card, have it, #swag, but what % would the overclock be from 1000MHz default to 1175? (As far as I am aware, GD overclock setting goes in intervals of 5%)

What does the yellow checkmark mean? I tried to check this game with Crysis 3 and Payday 2, and it has a yellow check mark. I'm getting this GPU, and my CPU is an Intel i3-3225 (LGA 1155). I'm planning to use this build with a 1TB 7200 RPM, and 8GB (2x4) 1600 DDR3. Will this run at least Payday 2 with 1280x1024 around 40 fps+?

I found out, you can get the ICEQ with just a better cooling system, but you can get the ICEQ turbo which has an OC of 10% to 1100 mhz
