I'm sure someone has brought this up before so I apologize if my thread is redundant. I have finally put on my eVGA copper heatisink and it's making about a 4 degree difference compare to stock (I'll wait a few days for the thermal paste to bond). I can safely clock my card to about 454mhz core without any issues and run 3dmark05 repeatedly without crashes. Will it be more stable to use the evga Ultra Extreme BIOS with my Ultra (but keep in mind I have a really small case- see sig) so I'm not sure about heat issues??? The hottest I've gotten the card is about 65 degrees celsius after playing farcry with everything going. Some help would be greatly appreciated as I've never actually flashed a video card bios.
