Its irritating, thats all.
Its not a bug, and 440 probably IS a "problem" for that card, regardless of heat or PSU. While the GT might be the same chip as the Ultra, the Ultra has two molex connectors for a reason; it allows the GPU to run stable at speeds above 400, which many GTs won't do for very long. Even when people get their GT to run higher than 410, they soon have to underclock it because the GPU gets damaged. This happens even if you up the voltage, just ask around or use the search function.

So if yours is running stable at 410, you've got a good overclock for a GT. If you want to go higher, you should probably buy an Ultra.
