I posted a similar thread over a tweaksrus.com and was told that the 80.40's are "flakey" and advised the 76.10hd 3 drivers which ill be trying shortly, funny enough the 3 variant seems to give the best results?

Roll back then mate. Different people have different results with different drivers. For many people, including myself, these are the best drivers ever made. For others they have issues. Did you do the uninstall, driverclean, install procedure?

I like the 80.40, great graphics, no artifacts or hangs. But I don't O/C my 6800 GT....

Once people learn of my disability, I have no doubt that they will send me lots and lots of Graphics cards to O/C...

Is that what your doing here Graham, offering me free graphics cards to O/C? ":O}

In his old age, Daniel has forgotten the very name of the website he owns. You really should give it a bit of stick. Im sure it will hit 420/1120+.

At least set it at Ultra speed, 400/1100. That way you can feel like you have an ultra for nothing. It actually makes a bit of a difference in some cases. Its a mild, safe overclock too. I run mine at that most of the time. Very stable. Except I go 1200 on the ram.

Great! And when will my new card arrive - I'm just so excited!

I mean I sit around all day long trying to think of ways to get people to send me free hardware, to think, one of my ideas has finally paid off!

I'd help with the shipping but I'm a bit short right now. While I may (or may not) forget the sites name from time to time, I'm never out of ear shout when she starts crying for money to keep our pithy sayings online.

I'll e-mail you my addy!! Such a sweet guy!! ":O}

Truth is I don't see the point of O/Cing it. Great performance as is, When games out pace it and it's value declines, then I'll pump the last goodness from it's fading heart... ":O}

You should see Flatout (the car game) running on my kid's GF3ti200 with the XG80.40's... Fantastic! of course being at 800x600 on a 15" crt helps but the game runs with very nice eye candy and smooth as butter gameplay, in one word: FUN
No problems with overclocking, it is ticking away at 220/500 as we speak.

I also put the 80.40's on a friend's FX5500 and it's the same thing... the games are playable and look nice on hardware many of us wouldn't use for paper weights. So kudos for nvidia and TweaksRUs.com for this release.

And yes, I installed 80.40's by uninstalling the drivers, booting into safe mode, using driver cleaner to clean up leftover bits from teh drivers, then rebooted into windows and installed.

Still can't overclock 77.72 or 80.40's. In fact, if I use riva tuner to OC with 80.40's, it causes a BSOD. I never tried using riva tuner with 77.72 though so it could do the same thing. 77.50 works fine.

???

On a side note, i ran 80.40 forceware (not XG) and tried 3dmark and I dont know what you guys are talking about, the graphics were crap. It looked as if dynamic lighting was disabled, everything looked way washed out and bland

So that you will all know that you are not without your influence upon my wishy-washy self - I'm running, for today only a one time video card overclocking extravaganza!

Best she'd do in her unmodified and natural state is 1.8 and 440 - pretested in the app, but untested in farcry...

Yep... I'm one hell of a risk taker! LOL

I'd use the ati tool artifact detector, it's quite intensive and will pick up on the slightest error

440, that is kick ass though a nice 25% boost, I bet with a voltage mod and a switch to better thermal compound you'd give dsio a good run for his money, though I agree that farcry doesn't need it, and with that being the most modern game you play I see why your happy at stock

Mate, thats pretty decent. You should probably back the core down a bit as it will be heat effected. 430 should be stable, so try that, though 425 would offer some insurance.

100% reference design 6800GTs are still the best overclockers of the bunch. eVGA all the way
