My 8800GT (simmtronics) runs at 50 degrees idle and goes upto 65 degrees under Load.....

I was thinking about flashing it with a 8800GT OC BIOS or a superclocked edition BIOS .... would you recommend it...?

No. Just overclock it with either Gainward EXPERTool, eVGA Precision, or RivaTuner (http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?page=rivatuner).

Yeah, what saturn said.

I know plenty of people that have flashed their bios and have never had any problems. I also know 1 person that flashed their cards Bios and the card ended up in the garbage can and for me, 1 is too many.

IMO the software route is the best choice.

I understand what you guys are saying but i know i can only go as far with the stock voltages... I could either flash bios from ssc or use nibitor to get a 1.1 vmod in place....right..?

Last time I looked (ages ago) soft volt mods on an 8800gt did bugger all, Has that changed?
