I've been running these clocks constant for a while. I get a few artifacts every now and then in crysis on high settings and 4AA. Runs really stable in there. Want pics of that too lol? Gosh, people really underestimate nvidia cards..

I could try clocking it higher with atitool but if i even touch the clock at all, even from stock, it crashes. Maybe im just a noob at atitools, but rivatuner works perfect for me

If you get artifacts, turn the clocks down.

Dont get selfish, any artifacts at all means unstable oc.

And when you start folding, that will stress teh gpu much harder and if you get any EUE's (early unit end) then youve got an unstable oc.

No, we dont underestimate Nvidia cards. Theres a lot of experience here, with both Nvidia and ATI.

Every card doesnt oc the same, some go higher some dont.

And you cannot use two programs to overclock either, and you need to check the box "apply overclocking at windows startup" for the clocks to stick, if not when you boot youll be back at stock clocks.

Yeah, I mightve just gotten a lucky card or somethin. Not bad for $240 shipped with crysis free...

Yeah I know about that. I boot with the stock clocks because other people use this computer. If I wanna play a game I just use a better profile
