The highest I've been able to get the core is 730, but I've read that there is no real difference when it reaches the 690 or 700 mark and can actually slow down performance when pushed above that. That is the reason I've lowered the clock back down to 690. I'm very happy with my current overclock. R6Vegas runs pretty damn sweet! (plus other games)
I've read a lot of discussions on overclocking and it still seems luck of the draw to me, all else being equal. But yeah it's sweet, I read about all the 8800 owners and think it's great, but I can't spend that now. Sooo a little overclock lets me crank FEAR and others up more, I think I'll stick with it!
