So from what I could gather online, 1.25v is on the upper edge of what is safe for a 24/7 rig with a GTX 295. My temperatures are fine, so no worries there, but Im mostly wondering If anyone here has had problems with that voltage and GPU. As well as to share my results overclocking with an old pre-production GTX 295 Id gotten from an acquaintance at Nvidia.

lol. Ive got it cranked to 70% fan speed, and dropped the frequency down to 730/1460/2.45 and the voltage to 1.225v because I wasnt comfortable with the temperature in Furmark.
