Set at default and then just move up slowly on the core until it's unstable. Then do the same for the memory.
ATITool 0.25 will do this for you by selecting "Find Max Core/Memory" and will check for artifacts at the same time

It's what I always use as it stress tests at the same time

On my MSI 6600GT ATITool was turning my core/memory down when I tried to let it find max core/mem. It kept finding artifacts all the way down to 80 Mhz. Needless to say, that wasn't right. I turned it back up to 600 core and 1200 memory and it runs fine.

Well, it's not hot by manufacturers standards, but by my standards, that's burning up. If you'd get the Zalman 700, your temps would drop to about 40 idle and about 45 or 50 load. Your temps are probably why you can't overclock worth a :turd:.

Yeah, that's pretty hot... my eVGA 6600GT (which had numerous reports of heating problems) runs at about 35 C idle, and about 43 C under load... however, my case is open. Not sure how big of a difference that makes.
