Is there a similar rule for voltage increases?
Yeah, as Mikecdm kindly pointed out, my intention was just to show you it's a similar thing as with the straps that are used for Core, Shader and Memory frequency increases, wherein it's by increments, and not every number.
Sorry about that, didn't mean to add confusion.

I personally wouldn't have a problem running at 1.1v 24/7. I ran it at 1.3v the other day on stock cooling to test it out. Turns out it doesn't clock too well on stock cooling, regardless of voltage.
Yup, I got some copper heatsinks, scraped the gunky T4000 off them and put some nice Sekisui Thermal Tape, then plonked 'em on the MOSFETs, the stock cooler on this is really pants though.

At 1.0v I can do 815/1050 OCCT stable (64c Heaven), [email protected] (84c OCCT, 74c Heaven) [email protected] 1.075 (OCCT- Toasty, 81c Heaven). and I stopped bothering there.

Will test again with a decent cooler, these really don't like 72c and over.

I would say safe voltages for stock air cooling 1.037v aftermarket cooling (Accellero xtreme plus 2) 1.1v and WC 1.15v i would not use more. I am sitting at 1.062v @ 925/1850/2000 WCed

why would you OC your ram? IDK what ram you have but i have 8 gigs of ddr3 running @ 1866 with GTX 460 standard clock. i run BF4 @ max and i only use 40% of my ram and about 33% of my cpu. OC gpu - yeah but only if you have to.. for games i see no reason to OC your ram or cpu. Don't get me wrong.. i am a big fan of - GO FASTER! but i must say... I never had a problem with a gpu until i started OC'n them. I have burned out at least 4 of them over the years and i just burned out another 460 last week. I never had issues with heat or instability during OC once i got them running smooth via increased voltage. I have used MSI afterburner and similar utilities and it seems that every time.. no matter what.. the card burns out in less than a year. After they burn out - I like to bake them in the oven to get them running again and use them to experiment. BTW : GTX 460 standard voltage is 0.912 V
