I need help with my overclocks on my GTX 480. I have it clocked to 900Mhz core and 2000mhz mem. 1.150 volts. Its dead stable in everything I run it in except when I do the Furry test in OC Scanner, I may get liek 10-20 artifacts. Tessy I just ran for an hour and my temps peaked at 64 celcius on the chip and around 46 on the PCB, Furry runs it to about 72 and 51. Would you back this down? I have the backplate on the thing with a fan blowing air down on the pcb and i did the mod with a 920, put the shroud back on, and covered the gaping hole where the heatsink. I am not bumping the voltage up any more since its already getting the PCB hotter than I think it should be, but do you think dropping the memory down will help with the artifacts? Or is the clock too high, or should I stop worrying about it
