do you need special cooling to do this? or can you just oc it directly with rivatuner? does it have any negative side effects on the card?

I would advice to get better cooling like the nv5 silencer. Each GT is different and some can run 400/1100 no probs but if you want to go higher get better cooling.

My prevous GT (which died due to a faulty core) would easily hit 420/1.1 stock cooling and stock voltage. My replacement would only do 390 core with stock cooling and voltage. I had to flash my card and buy an NV Silencer 5 to get up to 420/1.2 which im at now. It all depends on the core and memory you got.

I just put in a bfg 6800Gt in the wifes build up and it could do 400/1.14 at first. I then put in a vantec dual fan pci card 2 slots under it and because the temps are now 5c lower, it will overclock more. I can now get it to 414/1.15. This is the new design HSF bfg card.

Sounds about like my core.

It seems these later core cards are not hitting
what some of the first GT's will do.

I'm most happy at 400/1100 with mine though.
If I can do more when my NV5 get's here tuesday
then so be it but I'm not counting on it.
I just want lower temps. :)

is 70 c while playing a safe temp?

Sure that's great.

I see 96 with my BFG.

94? isnt that a little high? what is considered a good speed? im playing cs s with 400/1100. You think i should be able to turn it up higher?

BFG says anything under 100 is fine.

I can hit 430/1150 with stock cooling, and 75 degrees with the standard Chaintech heatsink, which is reference, and copper.

But I keep it at 400/1100 just because.
