    Wherever I can find the iron.
    It seems that I can clock up to 750 on SC stock voltage (1.012), but anything higher I get artifacts in Kombuster and Heaven 2.0. Temps are in the mid 80's. I'm thinking of pushing the voltage a bit more and try for 800/1600. So, for those who have clocked to 800, what kind of vcore did it take to get you there?

    It's all good. I can use a little ribbing. It keeps me humble.:laugh: I may change out the TIM this weekend, and see if doing so will give me a bit more play on the voltage.

    I was able to reach 800/900/1600 w/out voltage when I had one card (EVGA GTX 470 basic model). Had to increase voltage to get above 800/1600.

    Must be the GTX 480's. The GTX 470's seem fine with GPU-Z

    is that the most out of stock volts?

    Have you tried afterburner yet? there is a beta for the 480's there as well.

    The 470 continues to amaze me in the overclocking ability~

    That is just during benching:)
    While playing games there is no need to overclock one or especially two of these cards. I set the fan between 45 and 50%; can't hear it over the rest of my system(s).

    i use the stock SC voltage and can hit 850/1050/1700 probably higher have bother to try, its just luck if you get a good overclocker or not what bios are you running? i updated to the newer SC bios voltage mite be upped im not sure but my temps even running at 850 core never go over 74c
    My voltage as shown below
