Default BFG 6800GT OC core voltage is what?

okay Ive been reading old posts and Im allittle worried, every post Ive been reading no core voltage goes over 1.5 well Im running at 1.6 (according to RT) and this is a pure stock unit. BTW I put a voltmeter on the regulator directly and checked it directly to make sure its 1.6 and it is. Now recently Ive been having issues with my computer while playing intense d3d games the computer just flat out shuts off and then reboots itself and then hangs on the reboot. Now its not (far as I can tell) any temperature issues. Im running full stock BFG OC settings. 370/1000

RT report
$ffffffffff ----------------------------------------------------------------
$ffffffffff NVIDIA specific display adapter information
$ffffffffff ----------------------------------------------------------------
$0100000000 Graphics core : NV40 revision A1 (16x1,6vp)
$0100000001 Hardwired ID : 0045 (ROM strapped to 0045)
$0100000002 Memory bus : 256-bit
$0100000003 Memory type : DDR3 (RAM configuration 07)
$0100000004 Memory amount : 262144KB
$0100000005 Core clock : 369.000MHz
$0100000006 Memory clock : 501.188MHz (1002.375MHz effective)
$0100000007 Reference clock : 27.000MHz
$010000000b HW masked units : none
Now I would like to start OC'n but the voltage and this crappy heatsink are my issues at hand. (nip at the bud no liquid coolers) Now 1) if this voltage is way too high what should I set it at, and how? 2) anyone finally see a after market cooler for the 6800 series cards besides the liquid cooler. or know how to modify the fan's on the heatsink so I can get some REAL CFM flowing thru the card? I have allready planned on modifying the fins on the heatsink so they have a knife edge for better flow but the fans themselves are just horrible low CFM and noisy bastards.

Any help is appreciated thank you.
