Yip, just go the latest version from the website, thanks.

So im new to the GTX 2x0 range of cards i just have a few questions regarding overclocking & the card in general.

1) Ive just ran furmark for 30mins at stock FTW Edition settings (666/1404/1107) the highest temp i recorded was 85c ... is this a safe temp and do i have room for overclocking?

2) When running furmark for stress testing what do i look out for? how will i know the overclock is not stable?

3) Has anybody tried to remove the cooler/heastink, clean the old thermal compound & replace it with AS5? how where the results?(been thinking about doing this myself!
