Most need to keep in mine though that you really should
not run the Max OC if u plan on keeping it a year or longer.
Even though most will hit 420+ the best most stable thing
to do is run 400/1100.
You only loose a very few FPS droping down a little and
running stock Ultra speeds. :)

Waiting for the "Yet another GT OC thread" picture......
(xmastong)
Btw: Comparing brands for OC's is a useless waste of time.

none of the BFG OC models tested were with the proprietary BFG twin fan heatpipe cooler.

I'm curious to see how those tested.

No mention of MSI, ASUS, etc.. other brands

from the post it seems BFG, leadtek, gainward, Gigabyte o/c to 420+/1100+
consistently.

I've had my AOpen 6800GT up to 420/1140 stable. (But it ran kinda hot with the stock cooler so I went back to 400/1100 again)

Why don't you believe it? This is BS (sorry)!
They all get the same chips from nvidia.
There's BFGs running at 68 load and they still don't get past 390mhz. Then there's cards tha load at 80 degrees but can do 420mhz stable.
Then there's people claiming to run at 460mhz on their GT stable wich is just a lie in 99%. Some people think an OC is stable when 3dmark03 runs through.
Others want a stable card that renders no errors and works at the clockrate with any game they own.

YOU CAN'T SAY ONE MANUFACTURER HAS CARDS THAT CLOCK HIGHER THAN OTHERS!!!!!
(except tested samples like Gainward GS and even those seem to be unstable on the granted speeds sometimes)

I really really want a BFG 6800 GT (mikec)

(xmastong)

And I would put it in my sig. Right under the ATI stuff (snowlol)

Come on one of you guys buy my 9800Pro for 400 bones.

Seems to me all GTs do 420/1120, unless the card is an overclocking pain.

You also should be taking into account that there are going to be some review samples sent out that have been cherry picked by manufacturer marketing folks.

Imrpessive IMO. If anything, it does show that some brands have higher quality standards than others. I vote for a sticky.

I've never seen anything get damaged through OCing.

Would u settle for a slightly used PNY 6800 gt? ;) (xmastree)

In Europe the prices for cards are higher becuz of higher tax on such consumer electronics. The Gainward golden sample GT I got cost me
505 Euro's. But the Gainward is very much worth it. 350/1000 or 400/1100
runs all that flawlessly ; i already did countless of overnight 3D modeling & rendering with it.

I wanna keep my GT healthy for more than a year. 2 years at least, so I'm not gonna go beyond 400/1100 for now.

With proper cooling, overclocking is simply your friend (xmasgrin)

feh, my eVGA 6800GT will do 380/1100 all day no problems.

once I up it to 400/1100, I get artifacts on the turtle shell during Nature test in 3dmark03.

mine ran without any graphic hitches with all games and rtldribl for a while @420/1200 - 3dmark05 give me some corruption on the green floating blob level. i lowered it to 425/1145 and it seems happy enough

if i got a lower one , i would first reseat the HSF to make sure - some of the personal pics of peoples paste when they removed the HSF have left alot to be desired.

This is the key.......PROPER COOLING!!!

I learned the hard way and eventually added an extra fan and upgraded all of my existing case fans. The other key is adequate power, the GT's require a min. of 300W. I just installed a new Antec 430W TruePower (from OEM 250W) and now my GPU temp is around 70 under full load. It used to go as high as 80. I'm sticking with 400/1100, it's stable and shouldn't put too much stress on the card.

Me too......

I have the same card, but it definitely needs adequate case ventilation & cooling.
