Default Re: GTX280/260 Overclocking Results

Sooooo guys, what is the "point of no return" for temps? In other words, at what temp should I be concerned about frying my card? I love to OC, but don't want to shorten the life of my card. There must be a balance of performance and heat.

Thanks.

Kapt
