And I guess it's even.
I have a total of 6 case fans and 2 rad fans for my H50, I'm guessing I have enough airflow.
Phaedra, are you using the fans on your H50 as intake by any chance?
Maybe the warm air from your H50 is "cooling" your card? If the surface looks even and you've reapplied the TIM several times, then maybe you should have checked the temps before flashing the card, just to make sure that's not the issue (although it shouldn't be if the voltage hasn't increased too much or at all).

DX9 and XP could be causing the problems here. Maybe try reflashing the card with a different BIOS just to see if the performance changes.

On to overclocking bishes!
EDIT: Card idles around 40C at 40% fan at the moment (no reseat or anything). Ambient temps of 78F. Under load using EVGA OC Scanner, it maxes out at 73C and 70% fan speed. Not too loud at all if you ask me. BF:BC2 easily drowns out the fan noise.
Voltage is reading as 1.05 in Afterburner without any tweaks, but this is after the flash. Not sure what the stock VID was. I'm going to go for an OC now to try and get 800
I take it on nVidia cards, core and shader clock has more effect than RAM oc?
What BIOS did you flash with for that VID. Seems high to me, but you may be able to get a decently high overclock without having to adjust the voltage.
Personally, I'd find my limit on the core (first) and memory (second) and then get them stable together.

Good to hear almost everybody is having great success though.
I won't get mine until the end of the week.
In the meantime, I've updated the Google spreadsheet with the new numbers and the unlock success of those particular cards.
