Well it would seem like this card overclocks like a beast. One problem. It gets loud! lol

When you're running a heavy overclock, and playing a game, the fan noise can become unbearable. Hmm. Its almost like this card is an oxymoron. It overclocks great, but the noise is such that you have to ask yourself if its really worth it. Time go go water cooling, I guess.

Oh and evga precision will show you the stock voltage and how much its increased by, over on the slider on the far right.
