  1. The reading is for the +3.3v Voltage control chip IIRC, so its perfectly normal.

    The 8800GT core is designed to run at 1.05/1.15v, It would have burned long before reaching 3.28v

    Thanks for this bit of info :D just that its stock settings seem odd to all other sparkle models i can find 661/1674/945.

    these are sparkle models iv found and my model number matches a stock one.

    Sparkle 8800gt 512mb - CALIBRE P888 - 675/1728/900

    Sparkle 8800gt 512mb - SF-PX88GT512D-HP - 600/1500/900

    Sparkle 8800gt 512mb Cool Pipe3 - SF-PX88GT512D3-HP - 600/1500/900

    Why could mine be different?? it has the same code as the cool pipe3 model yet has no heatpipe cooler on it.
  3. Is that the stock clocks? Check with GPUz.
    If you bought it used, It may have a flashed BIOS. What cooler do you have?
