Hello everyone.

I've recently acquired a XFX 6850 xxx edition card and so far I got some damn decent results.

I used Trixx to clock the card at
Core = 1010Mhz
Mem = 1170Mhz
Volt = 1.292
[Temps on stock cooling, are 37ish Idle, 57-ish load. Heatsink is spotless clean. Fan is at 95%. Not too loud, my ASUS is FAR louder at 70 heh]
[Drivers are catalysts 12-8 [downloaded from the webs], overcloking tool is Trixx [latest Sapphire has at the moment].
This resulted in approximately 700 point jump in 3Damrk 11, around 8-10 fps in lost planet 2 and around 7-8fps in Sniper Elite V2...


Now my question is, what can I do to make it better... It might be asking too much here, but, is there anything else? Or this be the peaks?

*Issues so far include screen flashes when not gaming and overclocked. They are a tad bit annoying. Downclocking back doesn't help too much, but rebooting clears right up. No crashes so far. I have heard the buzzing/humming noise [like a transformer buzz] but that went away and so far never came back..

P.S. The mark I was shooting at was 1025Core, 1175Mem, 1.295V. I got it from a website [kitguru] and decided to stop few steps short to make sure I am not breaking things...

*EDIT*
I forgot to mention that BIOS version is 013.007.000.002.038735 as read by Trixx

Thank you for help in advance ^^.
