385 from 350 really isn't anything dude, and I don't mean that in terms of 'skill' for overclocking, I simply mean I've never seen a 6800GT that couldn't atleast do 400...all 6800GTs should hit 400 rather easily unless you're room is boiling hot, the particular brand you got just sucks absolute crap or something along those lines.

I have watercooling on mine so obviously I clock the hell out of it.

I've got en evga 6800GT running at 450/1200 from stock 350/1000

Yours can hit upwards of 420+ core if you just got something like a zalman VGA cooling (not sure of the specific model but ask around, people recommend one in particular which I couldn't tell you) or an NVSilencer which I know atleast one person has been able to clock theirs right up with mine.

Why would you get rid of the monsterous stock cooling of the Leadtek card?
