Well it's not overheating, if you've read my post. If anything it's cooler than normal thanks to good cooling.
The other thing is that outside OCCT:gpu and GPUTool there are no instabilities or artifacts of any kind and I have another user run the tests with he same results.
Runs games, Furmark, 3Dmark vantage and 3dmark 06 without a hitch.
I have an inkling that the tests might be bugged and would very much like to have it confirmed by other users with the same card, it only takes a minute or two.
