Well, I'm not sure. I used MSI Afterburner, stock was 1049 mV which was unstable at these clocks. I bumped it up to 1065 mV, which lasted longer but still errored. I then set it to 1085 mV which proved stable for 30 minutes.
Haven't seen any artifacts.

I wouldn't... the card is already at the limits of the 6pin and 8pin cables. Thats why they shipped with the low clocks of 725/1000 when they can easily get 850/1200.
I would get PCI-E 2.0 before overclocking, or you might run into some serious issues. I'd hate to see a fire start because your pulling more power than the cable is rated for. I had a wire explode in my computer on my first build. It's not a very fun experience.Edited by Murlocke - 12/11/09 at 8:20am
