Yeah, both ATI and Nvidia have put a new thing in the vid cards bios, if you go too high for the chips Thermal properties, it gives you vertical lines, it's red if it's just a little too high and green if you've gone way over.
Oh, if it does either of these, shut the system down, boot into Safe Mode, re-set the clocks and back off a little. If the screen turns Black, hit the Power button and Shut Down. On my 5870 with the stock drivers it only overclocked to 50Mhz over, after the third driver release it went 100Mhz over.
BTW, I happen to agree with Rockr on the Bios thing, if it works the way it's intended don't mess with it, there are soooooooo many ways to overclock and bump voltages and do anything you want without flashing it. It's like the new i-7 <stupid name, it's got 6 cores and 6 HT straps>, it'll run you $1000- so would you flash the bios on your old Mobo and drop in that chip or just buy a new mobo that was built for it? The only difference I see here is that on Evga products you can actually flash a new bios and the old one is still there in Default slot 1.
