Am I risking my GTX 460?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My GTX 460:

Reference design manufactured directly by Nvidia (Best Buy retail model)
Flashed with a modified MSI Hawk bios, allowing for up to +.175mV

Currently it is running at:

1.175mV
920MHz core
1840MHz shader
2000MHz memory

I have set up an aggressive fan profile to keep it below 70 degrees, under heavy usage it rarely goes above 65 degrees, but obviously due to fan noise I usually have to wear headphones while gaming.

My main question is, what is the risk of blowing my card up? So far I haven't had any issues, but I can't seem to find any information on the quality of reference parts in the GTX 460 and what limits they can handle when overclocking, whether or not they use solid caps, high quality mosfets, VRMs etc etc.

Anyone else have a GTX 460 that has been pushed to similar clocks and voltages?

That's a bit above my comfort zone, which is 15% above stock. You probably are fine, but if you're really concerned, just drop it down to 150mv or so.
