But two days of solid running at those speeds !

Will post back and let you know how it goes with the leadtek, like we both dont already know its gonna smoke the bfg. lol
now you have me curious, why are you running your 2D mode at 430MHz ?

since 2D is not very demanding or stressful type of work, there is no need to change from the original default of 300MHz ! I did a number of trials and found no benefits myself !

also, having 2D at 430 will heat things up more than necessary and may even affect max 3D/memory overclocks ?
The more I know, the more I know I don't know
