I use Rivatuner, and in it you can unlink the shader clock from the core. Upping the core creates quite a bit of heat which I don't want, but the shaders don't seem to create much. I also found that making any move at all with the memory clock immediately crashed fahcore on my machine, so I haven't touched that as a result.

Now that I am sure what I can run the card at, I hacked the BIOS, and I don't need Riva anymore except to control the fans.
