I would say you have found the cards, limit for whatever reason. With temps that high, I wouldnt add more voltage to stabilise the clock without water cooling. I dont think anyone would.

Its a Sapphire X850XT people have done better on this card.

The card also runs close to 80c on stock

Perhaps a dodgey card?
Doubtful. If you are comfortable. Pull the heat sink off you graphics card, and apply a fresh layer of Arctic Silver 5. And put on a better cooler, or the stock one again if a better cooler isnt possible. Should lower temps. Ask cadaveca about X850XT temps, he would know more than myself.

Thanks for tips so far.
