    I've yet to overclock mine, but once I do I'll be sure to report what I get. :)

    Not a GB one but my reference Asus one runs at:

    820
    1900
    On stock volts which is 1.064v

    I have gotten higher I think it was 860/2100 on stock volts but I got little artifacts in Heaven benchmark but not in any of my games though :S So I just changed it to SOC clocks to stay happy.

    some nice overclocks there guys, anyone on water?

    i have a 570 but a bit worried about overclocking as their rep is that they can't handle it like the 480's and 580's

    Probably not mentioned as its linked to GPU ?

    800mhz GPU
    1600mhz Shader
    2000mhz Memory
    1075mv

    It's linked to the core clock. So at 820core the shaders will be 1640.

    My SOC is stable at 800mhz which is 20mhz lower than it should be :(. It's also running very hot 100 degrees during witcher 2 and 99 degrees in Kombustor. Temperatures seem very hot. What other temperatures are everyone else getting?

    Witcher 2 is very GPU intensive.

    My Reference GTX480 runs at 83C at 77% fan on Witcher 2.

    80-81C for Crysis 1 and 2 with 70% fan.

    77C for Source games at 62-65% fan.

    Getting water cooling soon so the temps and noise wont be an issue and I use headphones anyway.

    Those temps sound high for in game. With my SOC at factory overclocked settings in a HAF-X, in games I get around 80C at about 60% fan speed. Furmark is pushing temps up to just under 90C after a couple of minutes with a 100% fan speed.

    480 SoC here.
    stock was 820/1900 100% stable @ 1.035.
    Now 870/2000 @ 1.080v.
    Had it up to 900/2100 with 1.100v, but made no perceivable difference in games due to my CPU holding it back.
    Temps very rarely go above 80oc except in that OCCT thingy.... ( avoid ).
    Heaven ...1235 cannot get anymore as CPU is a bit old now.

    480 SOC.

    Stock : 820 / 1900 stable, 1.063 volts.

    I've been having a tinker with it, still on stock volts though, while playing Stalker COP complete.

    Core : 865 - 870 / 1960 ish - that's about the limit it seems, so more volts needed.

    480 SOC:

    Stock 820/1900 - 1.038V - unstable (in my system)

    Current stable settings: 780/1950 - 1.063V

    disappointed but not the endofthe world

    someone asked about Witcher 2 temps - get 79-80C even after a few hours. JC2 - same sort of temps- perfectly acceptable really. OCCT gets to upper 90s - but card is still stable
