I was reading in past threads about what vcore people were using but they were not mentioning what they were using for cooling.
my specs: 1.5 volt mod; overclock: 700/852
you should do the 1.5 volt mod ...
your cooler is sufficient and you'd gain a rather large performance increase.
i did it and gained like 2000 points in 3dmark05 ... and, about 20 to 40 FPS in games.
personally, i use a vantec iceberq 6, but your zalman should also provide adequate cooling.
check my sig for temps with the iceberq 6 on a 1.5v 7900GT ... you zalman should be close to the same results ...
i'll probably do the 1.55 mod soon ..
