    You need to find out for yourself. I can't tell you what core speed your card will start artifacting at.

    change your v-core to 1.55 install core temp and run a cpu bench and watch the temps if they stay under 65 then your cpu cooler is good,

    next lower your ht link from x5 to x3 lower your ram and then change your fsb to 250 and then keep going up in 5

    Thats pretty good. I would stay there or only go a few more mhz tho because thats kinda hot for a cpu.
