    I dont know what he is doing, I use afterburner. I just set the OC, and the card still downclocks on its own. Even with the voltage slider maxed, I get verification in GPUz that the volts step down with the clocks.

    I think they always change automatically, once you set them.

    Keep in mind the guy has a gas mask on so everything is kinda glossed over.

    Have you used Afterburner? This is what my GTX 470 shows right now:
    [​IMG]

    It shows this after starting Vantage:

    I can't remember what Precision looked like when I used it originally with this card>

    And thanks for the awesome looking background that I have right now:toast:

    gpuz shows no drop in clocks at all.

    Anybody got the 197.03 drivers on the cd retail box?. That's what I got; and I think the drivers at launch were 197.17.

    Much better. Go on the NVIDIA website and compare specs. Look up reviews. I'd rather have one GTX 470 than two GTX 275s in SLI. Average FPS would be a little bit less sure, but minimum FPS would be higher, AA performance would be much higher, and DX11 support is nice.
