    2761 3DMarks with 950/1700.

    CPU was 2670QM on my build, and top temperatures are yet pretty laughable: CPU 68C, and GPU 59C (lol).
    Somebody should try and find a way to put this thing at least to build up some sweat ffs...

    970/1800 settings and no signs of artifacts whatsoever, gpu top temps 66C.

    Vantage scores, had to drop gpu to 950, 970 started to gief artifacts in middle of test and resulted to driver recovery, though gotta play with some settings more...

    OK now try to play Crysis 2 or BF3 for at least hour or two and you will see :P GPU is quite unstable at such a clocks without overvolting and sooner or later will reset to stock clocks and freeze (close) a game you play maybe reset graph.driver...now Im on 285.79 beta and at 940MHz BF3 close and reset to stock values same behavior on 285.62 WHQL now Im stable on 910/1650/1820 for good stable play...

    Yeah, I noticed that both 3DMark11 ans 3DMark Vantage don't get anywhere near maxing out the temps on either CPU or GPU. Real world may be quite different.

    But then again, some people buy high spec PC's just so they can overclock and benchmark. It takes the place of hot-rodding, I think.

    I dont think this is about temperature only the GPU HAS limitations in voltage vs. clocks... at so high clocks (970 etc) it will not crash in 3D mark 11 but it will surely crash in the high performance games like I said...so this clocks and 3Dmark 11 scores are useless and we are interested in real and stable OC so symb try it how long will you play on those clocks...

    NVIDIA Inspector has the GPU core clock locked for me. Something I'm missing here?

    Same here .

    Edit: Ah, I see, playing with the shader clock setting changes the gpu clock as well.
