For WIC I would first OC your processor; then your GPU. I'm pretty sure having a faster processor is helpful in this game.

Also my results are all DX9...I'm testing things compared to my old 7900GT...I'll boot up Vista and test some DX10 stuff later.

I dont know cuz I never touch the PCI or PCIE stuff, only FSB, VCore, RAM Frequency, sometimes the Northbridge Voltages.

Maybe it was just unstable for a bit and needed to get used to the faster clock speed. IDK i only tried once, when i restarted it I didnt keep the settings, I went to the BIOS and downclock it back to 3.0GHz

It was from Ebuyer so i could RMA it but that means taking all my pc apart waiting for them to come and collect it, then wait another day or 2 for them to tell me i wasnt lying and its actually defective and require a new one! then another day or two for it to come, then re-fit all my pc into it, all for one fan that to be honest im not missing! hmmmm choices choices
