Yea agree.

Most 580's will do 900-950 on air if you set the fan more aggressively. Personally I suggest leaving the memory alone, its not worth the increase. For 24/7 running I suggest 900 core as heat is well under control and it adds around 20% performance over stock clocks (on a stock cooler).

Ah great... that sounds pretty good. If I used a good cooler to get the temps down about 30c would I end being able to safely go to 900 (low-med fans) or 1050 (high fans)?

You can run 900 core on the stock cooler, just use something like MSI Afterburner to set your own fan stepping speeds depending on you personnel preference. My card stays in the 70's Celsius which is perfectly fine and doesnt seem to need any more than 60% fan speed which is fine for noise imo, others may disagree.

I considered a after market cooler, but dont feel it needs it.
