Default Re: GTX280/260 Overclocking Results

Speaking of temps, I ran Furmark and when my temp reached 80 degrees the screen went blank. I had to cold boot my machine to get it to come back on. I guess the card got too hot, but at only 80 degrees? Anyway, I backed off the OC and everything is ok.

Btw, it was OC'd at 705\1525\1155 when it shut down. My card doesn't seem to like the shader above 1500, so I keep it around 1485.
