The temps seem fine, a volt mod would help but wait until you get the new cooler.

i agree ^
temps aren't the problem with these cards, or are you ocing too fast? You have to wait for the card to warmup a bit after each raise of the speeds.

yeah i may not try a volt mod either way. so your oc can be stopped by what? 1. temps
2. voltage
3. physical limitations
4. anything else someone can clear up?

also would i use rabit for more voltage?

yeah, you probably need more power to the card. i've seen that cards with 12 pipes oc better than ones with 16 pipes for the most part; maybe it's because the extra pipes need more power.

It's beter to have more pipes than raw MHz. You should be happy with that OC.

You'd need to do a physical voltage mod on it. This can be done either with resistors or by a pencil mod.
Here is an article about it:
