very nice and +1 to you kind sir.
if i may point out that in my experience there are times newer drivers may increase or decrease "gaming stable" overclocks; there still may be a need to still use programs such as AB and back off a bin or two when modding the bios.
please don't take that as negative criticism, you did a great job investigating and posting!!!
