Overclocking on a Asus GTX 460

I'm trying to find out if I can squeeze anymore performance out of my GTX 460. It was previously overclocked by a friend but I would like to up the voltage a bit more.

Current OC'd settings:
@ 775MHz core clock
2000MHz memory
1550MHz shader

At the moment it's like this:

Idle:
30c
22% load

@ 405MHz Core clock
162MHz Memory
810MHz Shader

Fan speed (auto) 20%

Working at load:
60-67c
98-99% load

@ 776MHz Core clock
1000MHz Memory
1550MHz Shader

Fan speed (auto) @ 45-51%

CURRENT VOLTAGE: 1037mV (1.37v)

Would you see any room for voltage improvement? Thanks.

    Use MSi Afterburner to OC up to what u can on your current 1.037v. If windows crashes or applications fail to run, then the OC is not supportable. Up voltages in the BIOS up to 1.08v while watching temperatures change during load, keep below 100 degrees celcius.

    Consider a RAM OC, max possible from a GTX460 is just below 900MHz.

  3. Im unable to increase the voltage in MSI Afterburner because every time i change the voltage and click 'apply' it just resets back to 1.037mV? Does this mean that this is the maximum voltage I can go to?
