    I have been on this forum only a week or so. Already I am fed up with people saying that when the O/C cards "it crashes" or whatever.

    When you O/C you need a decent cooling system. Not only does this mean a bigger fan(only an example, no flames pls), or decent cooling!!. The artic cooling solution is one of the best out there BUT you need to buy RAMsinks for your mem.

    I do not want to here about ppl who have O/C there card(too high) and found artifacts. There is plenty S/W out there to help you.

    P.S. Google is your friend

    Any decent gamer should get aftermarket cooling for their card anyway. There's a reason why the only heatsinks to use aluminum/tin are the ATi ones. ;)
