Are GTX 470s supposed to OC this well?
So I've got two Gigabyte GTX 470's. Now Gigabyte isn't an eVga, so I didn't expect them to have the best chips and whatnot, but so far I have been able to get my cards running at 765 core/1530 shader. This is INSANE! And I'm not even done yet!
What is the catch here? Why is nvidia giving me a card that can run so much faster than stock for only a small voltage increase?
