i wouldnt think my cooling is great enough for any voltmodding, i'd have to get myself another heatsink for it i'm assuming to run at such high speeds... maybe i should just be happy with what i got

though i will read into the volt modding, seems interesting, don't have much time to do so now, but i'll check it out in the morn.

Remember that temperature ranges very from card to card though, a 6 series card can take a lot more pain then a 7 from what Ive seen. Overclock it until you get artifacts, then back off it a bit.

Also while voltmodding is an option I wouldnt reccomend doing this unless you are reslly deperate for those 3dmarks. The chances of you destroying the card, and of shortening its life are too much to risk a 400$ or whatever card.

A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:
