The tests were completed @ 1.4875V. However, it's not 24/7 stable, and it gets pretty hot at those settings. I'll have to test it further to see what I can get. I did get all the 3dmark's done (2001, 03, 05, 06)

I will rerun the tests tomorrow. I didn't realize this, but they were done on the 158.19 XP drivers, which are not FM approved. I have downloaded and installed the 158.22 XP drivers, which are FM approved.

I will admit that the tests yielded massive gains in performance in 2001, 03, and a healthy gain in 06. Perhaps the same thing will happen tomorrow with the 158.22's
