By maxing out the power target slider we found our stable core offset was +153MHz with memory offset of +540MHz, This allowed our card to peak at 1264MHz core with full stability and memory hit 1772MHz (or 3544/7088MHz depending on the calculation used). This gave us a 3DMark Extreme profile score of 3650, 500 points better than the reference settings.
