how high shader clocks are safe? also what is considered a safe temperature
For some crazy reason, COD2 and FEAR would heat up my GTX to well over 90 degrees and I'd start getting random but infrequent lockups. After going to the Thermalright HR03 Plus the thing never goes over 78 degrees no matter what and I've never had a video lockup since. I also started pushing the O/C higher. I'm running it at 620/2000 all the time. I see others are doing the same.
