Just got a 7800GS Leadtek 375/1200
The card overclocks really good,the maximum reported by Riva Tuner is 550-555mhz for the core and about 1500mhz memory.I got down to 1440mhz because if i set it above this line ,the video driver rolls it back to 1200mhz because that s the maximum allowed by coolbits2...
The core is set to 525mhz right now and the temps are ~50 degrees idle and ~75 degrees full load.

Do you think it s wise to keep 525/1440 if the core maximum is 25-30mhz more and thinking of the temps...i really don t know how good 75 degrees is for this card...

75c is really not to hot for them cards ,you could try a after market cooler if you think it running to hot but if it is running at 75c with a load then that temperture is not bad,I have both of my 7800GT overclocked from day one and I have had no problems,and it is nice to get the extra performance for free.

For GS there is no aftermarket cooler because of the hsi bridge...75 is the absolute maximum i got,in other games it doesn t exceed 65-70 degrees and i get no artefacts or instability
