Default 6800 Gt fails test

Every time I try to over clock Beyond 415/ 1.16 on my 6800 gt it fails the coolbits test and wont let me go any futher I have turned th fast writes off and made sure the voltage was at 1.16 and everything seems fine Im running it on an ASUS AV8 Deluxe MB and have the NV silencer on it for added cooling. My temps are fine around 37c - 40c . I was jsut wondering if I was missing some thing or if this card just has low limits I have seen others get 466/ 1.29 on thiers.

Yhea thats what i figured but jsut curious what does the coolbits test actualy test?

It may be i jsut got a low tolerance car wich is fine it still runs jsut fine on stock settings and still plays games just fine. I may try to use drive cleaner to clean out the drivers and every thing maybe even reinstall the OS just to make sure its not the software.

coolbits prob tests some math formulas to see if it gets any errors, like prime 95
