Re: Factory OC'd GTX 260, safe/worth it?
My GTX260 has normal temperatures for a GT2xx card. All the graphic cards run at stupid high temperatures nowadays anyway, the only way to keep them cool is watercool them.
What difference does it make if you are running a normal card overclocked or a factory card overclocked? the components are exactly the same with the same safety margins built into them. Nvidia provides the tools to overclock the cards and the manufacturers let you use them, so they know you are doing it.
A warranty is a warranty and as long as you are not flashing the bios or taking the card apart you are entitled to it.
