I have my Zotac GTX 460 1GB 256bit OC'ed as follows:

Core: 845Mhz

Memory: 2200

And my max temperature of FurMark was 87c, is that a bit hot? Or is that expected?

More about : 460 hot

Havent checked gaming, but with MSI Kombuster, all of the tests, I've never went over 80c.

Is yours stable in gaming?

Games like Bf3, skyrim, LoL, things like that?

yep, 80C is great for a GPU, and they can run up to a little past 100C so your doing great

I was playing BF3 for about 30 mins and then the screen got all choppy with white squares, and froze.

Is this "Artifacting" ?

I'm going to run another go with a fan on end of the gpu I just installed and see how it goes,

Idle without fan: 54c

With fan: 46c

I have dual 460's clocked at 845mhz and 2000mhz memory.

With Furmark it gets near 100C. 95C was the highest recorded so far.

Dont worry, your good. I believe 105C was its max threshold and itll start throttling down?

Okay, I get artifacting, and I get a max temp of 75c in Battlefield 3, so I'm going to crank it down to 800mhz and see if that solves the artifacting.

I would rather not pump the volts if I dont have to, :D

Artifacting is usually a sign of an unstable VRAM overclock, which you very well could have. I remember my 460s broke loose around 2080 MHz without extra VRAM voltage.
