GOOD card bro! I've got the same one from a local retailer and except for the ugly sticker, it's really great - from temps to lack of noise.

Will see how much does it overclock, haven't tried yet. It idles at 35-37 C w/ fans @ 30% (22-23 C room temp) and it doesn't break over 60 C in the games currently installed - Fallout NV, COD BO, NFS Shift, Borderlands. Those 3D temps are achieved with a fan speed of 40 to 45%. My previous GTX480 was iddling @ 40-42 C with fan @ 50%.

Didn't get to o/c yet... but for oc stability use 5-6 runs of Vantage/Unigine and play some heavy loading games such as Crysis. On my old gtx480 the COD Modern Warfare 1 was freezing if the oc was unstable. Not sure how effective are OCCT/Furmark since the GTX 5xx will downclock when running those - or find a version of those apps that are not detected & bypassed by nvidia drivers.

What's your VID? Find it with MSI Afterburner 2.1 Beta 6 - the default voltage for 3D mode.
