Default GeForce 8600M GT, powermizer performance monitor.

Hi,
I use a 8600M GT 256Mb with 169.04 beta driver.

In the nvidia x server settings I can see two Performance Level under PowerMizer.

Performance Level 1, gpu clock 275, memory clock 200
Performance Level 2, gpu clock 475, memory clock 400 (this is the maximum frequency for my gpu, ram)

Is there another performance level?
Is it possible that this drivers overclock my gpu by default?
I'm asking this because this is the first time that I see my GPU at 86...
Under windows I never seen over 79...

Is 86 a secure temperature for my gpu?

I have a 512 MB 8600M GT in my laptop. I sometimes see Performance level 0, where the GPU is running at 169 MHz and the memory at 100 MHz. It usually idles at about 53, and about 72 under load.

this means WARNING???
May I damage my GPU at 86??? We are in winter and I arrive to 86, in summer I'll probably arrive to 96... Is this a problem...

The strange thing is that if I play for 30minutes at quake4 my gpu arrive to 79, If I run compiz benchmark for 15 minutes, my gpu arrives to 86

Can I change the Powermizer performance mode?
Currently the Performance mode is Maximum performance.

Is it running at 86 after heavy load? If so, that's still well below the slowdown threshold of 110. What temperature is it when the system has been idle for a while?
