Default GTX 580 Lightning Overclock Potential

The question is, how much does it have?

I'm currently at 950 core, 1900 shader, 2350 memory with vcore at 1.113. I'm using afterburner to do this and the card is air cooled. A Corsair AX850 is running everything so power supply should not be an issue.

After running Kombustor for twenty minutes the card seemed stable with temps maxing at 54C. My main problem is I know nothing about the damaging effects of vcore. For example, if I hit 1.213 (The max afterburner will let me) will the core be damaged? Is temperature the only enemy or can the voltage itself cause its own problems?

You can never tell. My 560ti will onlky do 950, yet others will do 1000...

Searching i find most are under 1.2V as top Vcore.

Just like cpu, heat and over volting will damage things.

Right now voltage is my only concern. I'm idling at 24C and topping out at 54C. I'll admit though my room is a bit chilly.
