Default 8800 GTS Overclock

My first go at overclocking graphics cards

what i got so far:



Fairly good imo, its on stock cooling with fan at constant 80%.

Sadly i couldn't push the memory for 1000 like many others, kept artifacting.
Core could be pushed to 700mhz but would crash after 2 mins stress test in ATI Tool (Guessing not enough voltage). Got shader to 1700ish but again artifacting.

Load Temps Peak at 71*c

Edit: Lowered shader from 1655 to 1620, was getting smallish artifacts ! Seem's perfectly stable now

Your thoughts?
