"I HAVE FINALLY GOTTEN FERMI!!!" You forgot the indefinite article "a" anyway, I get better performance with the VRAM running at a rate good enough to keep up with GPU needs, if it's faster than the GPU it won't help your benchmarks, just don't let your card bottleneck at it's memory I suppose.

At this point, I've had 6 Fermi's in my possession that I messed around overclocking with. 3 470's and 3 480's. Four of the six (and all the 470's) had this same issue ... the memory wouldn't OC for crap if you OC the core as well. So this issue is very common. The good news is, the core clocks matter a lot more, so ... OC the core as far as it goes, and don't worry too much about the memory. The Fermi cards have a good amount of memory bandwidth even at stock settings.

this is the answer i wanted. thanks.

yeah, it locks up and artifacts in vantage if i go past 1720 on the mem, so i'm going to revert it back to stock (1687) and milk 800 core out of it.
