I finally broke down and bought one. To tell you the truth, I am afraid to touch any voltage on this card, it costs way to much to fry this quick.

44/360(720)/1.5V(<--- Stock voltage ???)

I am not gonna farther until they come out with a Zalman Heatpipe for this card. Then I will go farther.

I had a Visiontek Xtasy 9800Pro for a week and I OC'ed it in my Gaming Rig you see in my Sig before returning it. It was stable with no artifacts at 450/720. I applied Arctic Silver III to the Core and was able to get a stable OC of 456/720 with a 6453 3DMark03 score and an 18031 3DMark2001se score. Have fun OC'ing. :cool:

That big of a overclock almost does not seem worth the time and effort. I am getting around 16670 almost everytime but if i jump the CPU up to 2300Mhz instead of 2200Mhz i can break the 17000 mark without overclocking anything but CPU. I wonder if i overclock ram, video and set CPU to 2300 wonder what i can get?

Oh 1 last thing my CPU is 333FSB and my mobo is a 400FSB and i have it set to 400(200 in bios) should i disable my FSB Spread Spectrum it is set to .5% at defalt. Thanks again all

Got the ATI 9800Pro. GPU watercooled with Innovatek WB and AS Ceramic, RAM with Tweakmonster HS and AS Epoxy.
GPU set to 450 Mhz
RAM set to 360 Mhz
I got 3DMark03 latest at 6540 points with P4C3.0Ghz @ 3.3Ghz.
I haven't tried to run 3DMark03 without CPU o/c though so I don't know if it's worth to push the gc.

P.S: Not to mention his P4C 3.0Ghz @ 4.2Ghz.....:rolleyes:

OPPAINTER is notorious for having one of the highest, if not.. THE highest, overclocks without going the extreme measures. By extreme I mean, dry ice and LN2. That particular setup he has is a Prometia cooled CPU and Vapochilled 9800 Pro.

I'm pretty sure he gets sponsored, otherwise the guy just has too much money ;)

OPP for sure isn't sponsored by anyone. I'm a member of the xtremesystems.org forums. MSI won't send him anything and I think he gets very little "for free" he must just make really good money. In 3DMark him, JCViggen, Macci, and DJ are all crushing people. Guess they all got alot of money....
