I got it 780/1290 stable so far. Testing higher. Is this a freak card? I've heard of most 275s stopping at 760 or so and 1270 or so.

Tomorrow you'll be wanting to know why it's artifacting. :thumbsup:

You can overclock it to the moon & it might last awhile but eventually pushing it too hard will take its toll.
Keep in mind it only has to fail once to be ruined.
If it starts artifacting it will more then likely be because the memory os damaged.
At that point setting it back to stock won't help.

Overclocking is OK but you can push things too far.
If you have a good aftermarket cooler & good memory heatsinks you cdan push it hard ,to a point.

I'm all for OCing, I'm running my 2.66GHz at 3.2GHz.
It will do 3.6GHz easy BUT I'm not willing to push it that hard .

My point is, because it WILL do it doesn't mean it's a good idea to push it to the limit & keep it there.
