    so is there any new bios version for all 8800gs? i get random reboots when i stress test my video card after 15 to 20 minutes when i overclock it. do u think its hardware issue or power??? i dont get any blue screen. i just get reboots. i have to be able to overclock just like everyone else. i dont think its because of overclocking. what do u think???

    haha i hardly call that a normal OC.

    For me that Memory might be pushing it a bit, back off to 1000mhz most memory on the 880GS are rated 1.0ns i believe.

    The core seems abit high i would try 730-725.

    So run a Test 730/1000mhz and see if you experience any crashes/reboots usually it just because your overclocks are too high and or your Graphics card is overheating.

    exactly - 1000 may still be pushing it depending on the ram - also stock coolers don't always give best cooling so if you haven't already try and aftermarket cooler if you have to OC it in the long run keeping it cooler will extend its life:)

    this gigybyte came with an after market cooler from zalman. it doesnt have memory heatsinks. if i overclock to 1100mhz or 1070 mhzi get artifacts. the card came with 900mhz memory. will there be any frame rate increase from 1000mhz to 1050 or 1100mhz memory? and 720mhz to 750mhz core? if so how much more fps would be gained???

    not enough to justifiy the possible death of your card because your pushing it too hard. maybe 1-2%

    Your overclocking it too high, that is why it is crashing and rebooting. If you overclock the card and it crashes the machine under load, it is overclocked too high, regardless of if you get artifacts or not.

    what if you get restarts when you are not playing a game? i mean on idle??? then its not because of the video being under load. i got several restarts when i wasnt even playing.

    It doesn't matter, if it goes away when the card is set back to stock speeds, you are overclocking it too high.

    The 8800GS doesn't have 2D clocks, so you are always running it at the overclocked speeds, even when idle. So if the overclocks are unstable, it can cause crashing.

    it looks like its working fine now. i striped some of the cables and i disconnect the 120mm fan on the front case. and took out the ram and installed it in another slot. and it seemed like the power to the motherboard wasnt properly in or connected so i pushed it in. and
    i stressed test it for 2 hours and it didnt disconnect since then. what do u think???
