My card runs a little hotter than yours, so temps is a great concern of mine.

No I don't link. If they were linked my core would be even lower, but since the core is based off a multiplier it can still be limited by the shader.

For example with my shader at 1420, unlinked, my core won't go higher than 710. If I boost my shader to 1425, I am then able to run the core at 715. I can certainly set it higher, but the settings do not stick unless I up the shader.

Memory is quite sensitive, which is why I run it 25MHz(effective 50MHz) below my artifacting point. 2500MHz is 140GB/s.

As to the temp I think anything below 80 is safe for 24/7 use and won't shorten the life of the card.
