havent really tested with anything but the F@H GPU client and some games. and it seems to be okay. but that doesn't mean its 100% stable. but if it works it works. temps are ~70 @ 50% Fan speed [room temp ~27.1C]

for nvidias I flash them, with nvflash... and use nibitor to create custom BIOS for them...

I used the Precision tuning software and set it up as:

Core: 666
Shader: 1436
Mem: 1151

So far so good and my PPD has gone up about 500-600 ppd more than before. Happy I am!

It was really pretty easy. I just randomly moved the tuner and it seems to be working out just fine. Not sure how high I can go on it for the max PPD but even this little attempt has shown promise so I am very happy.
