I restarted the machine and then reduced the clock on the ram from 2100mhz to 2000mhz and then tested it for 4 hours doing Furmark's meanest test while running ATI tools artifacting test. So far so good and no more drama![02:38:58] *------------------------------*

(From: Yes, it overclocks as well as you'd hope, even on stock. (8800GT reviewer result) - [H]ard|Forum )jonnyGURU said:2000MHz memory OC is easy with this card BUT the overclock won't hold long term.
The memory is actually 2GHz, but the interface can't handle the speed for long periods. This has been tested by Nvidia, their OEM's and some partners over several weeks. The card will run like a bat out of hell for a while and then suffers irrepairable damage.
Just look at XFX. These guys overclock anything regardless of yield (I guess they don't take the overhead of support into account when they sell stuff) and they're only at 1950MHz on their highest OC card (Alpha Dog).
I would only crank the memory up to 2GHz plus to get a killer benchmark and then crank it back down to 1900~1950MHz for day to day use.
I'm sorry to say my PPD has taken a serious downturn lately. Having renovations done to my house so 2 of my rigs are down right now. I'm hoping they'll be back up and running this week. Glad to see the HWC team has been kicking butt and taking names and congrats to the winners of the contest! ST glad you won the card because I know you'll be putting it to good use!
