Theres no guarantee that your card will OC well, but its worth a try. Just be gentle with the screws, dont strip them when taking them out and putting them in.
The card is brand new so I don't think it could be dust. (But the inside of my case is a mess ) But my card OC's fine. Up to 434MHz on the core. But I leave it at 400MHz core and 1.10GHz on the memory. This FarCry demo is the only problem I have had so far. I just chalk it up to being a demo. So far everything else runs beautifully! And my card seems rock solid at 400/1.10!
I love nVidia again.
eVGA nForce 680i SLi
Intel Q6600 Quad Core @ 2.6GHz
nVidia 8800GTX @ stock speeds (will not OC)
2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 @ 1000mhz 4-4-4-10
Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA2
PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW
COOLER MASTER Stacker Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower
Westinghouse 22in wide screen LCD @ 1680x1050
