Im running my 260 at the speeds in my sig, Have been doing so since the day i bought it close to release date lol, Its actually bios flashed to those speeds.

Idles at 40c and FurMark load (1920x1200 MSAA x8 stability test) is like 86c.

Still eats 99% of the games i throw at it.

locks the oc into the bios so its no longer software controlled rather coded to the card so if you reinstall windows the OC is still there.

Yeah what |MaguS| said, I no longer need a 3rd party program to overclock.

If i was to sell the card it would still run at these speeds for the person i sold it too.
