Wow...i did it and it is way faster than the ultra, on STOCK HEATSINK!!!

I suppose you wouldnt be able to if it is another company than eVGA, which has the same heatsink for all of them.

Look at my sig. I have an eVGA 6800 GT and I overclocked it way faster than the Ultra with its stock heatsink, it hasnt given me any garbage about heat or instability yet .
