Do you mean to slowly decrease my voltage until I find the lowest that the card is stable?

My max temps are around 60-62 degrees, which, from what I've read, is very safe. Before overclocking my max temp was 58 so there's not much difference at all really.

Nice. My 7850 is 61C (repasted) with 1.18V @ 1.12GHz with 31C ambients lol

But anyway. Is it a dual-x as well?

Dual-X means two fans right? Yeah it's got two, it's the Sapphire OC version.

Thanks for all the assistance and advice guys.
