1200 mhz core
start at 1.275v (sounds like a lot but the card is built like a tank and can handle 1.35 and beyond). Play an intense game for a bit or run a benchmark like the AMD Leo Demo and monitor temps and check for artifacts. Hopefully and likely you are stable.
work you voltage down from there until you reach instability and bump it back up a notch or 2.
Ram can almost definately set and forget at 1600mhz.
1200/1600 will give you a monster card and not be beating on it very much.
What is your cards Asic score? Do you know how to check that?
Load up GPU-z and right click on the top of the app, if you do it on the words (techpowerup) it'll work. A menu will pop up, scroll down to "Read asic quality" and click that. It will give you a score % number.
Am using Catalyst overdrive or the MSI afterburner?
I also just checked the ASIC quality - 67.4%. Is that Good or bad?
I'll play around with the card a little tomorrow.
