Because I'm happiest with the BFG XT timings They seem to provide the best configuration to increase performance without decreasing my o/c'ing ability.

I have tried many other configurations, some leading to flashing screen and corrupted images ! I didn't want to risk damaging the card.

Yes and those who have not seen Jimmor's BIOS guide should definitely give that a look as well
