Chico State. GOT MOFO?
hi guys, iam having a little trouble wether i should permanently o/c my Visiontek gf3 or not. I have try to o/c the card, it went up to 230/515 stable with stock cooling(i have add artic silver 2 but hsf is still stock). but iam afraid of the long term effect of the card(talking about a 12 months here :D ). I heard some people's card died after a few months because of o/c. and I have considered adding a cheap socket A heatsink for the gpu with Artic silver adhedsive if I ever o/c my card permanently.

Any advice from you guys would be appreciated.

BigMofo, :D
