I thought I would start a thread dedicated to overclocking & overvolting the GTX 295. I figure this will be a good way for people to share there tests, temperatures and overvolt settings using the GTX Voltage Tuner. It will also give a general idea as to what manufactures clock & perform the best. In the end I would like to compile a spreadsheet.

Note one:
If you are an extreme owner & have a Quad configuration please only test one GTX 295 at a time.

Note two:
Photos, please use the standard format for this forum as I do not know it.

Note three: If you submit more than once just keep editing your post with
your new results leaving the prior result.

Please use the following template below.

Memory:4 GB, OCZ Flex2 PC 9200 @ 1131Mhz, 5-5-5-15
CPU: E8500 @ 471*8.5
Cooling- Stock, H2O -EK water block etc.

Did your capacitors squeal? Yes, No or I did not care to listen

Vantage Score:

-Use the performance setting with registered Vantage copies
-Include either a validation link or screen capture for Vantage along with a GPUZ & CPUZ screen capture.
-The driver version does not have to be FM approved.

No you don't need an SLI board, unless you want to run Quad x2 295's. I have a DFI X48 board made for Crossfire and run a single 295.
The X58 chipset's support Hybrid SLI so you can run either Crossfire or Nvidia SLI.
