    A worthy challenge. :D Impressive clocks there on that 580M slightly higher than a desktop 560 Ti.

    Are those clocks long duration gaming stable?

    No of course not. I get black screens when I used reference 560 Ti clocks (although that was with a previous driver) after about 10 mins of Crysis 2 DX11 maxed. Hopefully new drivers and optimizations will get me even higher. I may even hit the 19k GPU spot with a 2860QM. I have 10 more Mhz on the core to push to reach my target of 850Mhz before I stop benching.

    If he can run Vantage it isn't unstable..... give credit when credit is due. The man has the world record for a single 580M....

    Benches are for pushing your system to the max no matter what the cost. If I wanted to show practical results, I would have posted frame rates and in game shots. Don't even get me started on my 3DMark11 run that was glitchy as hell but it still completed with P4558.

    For sure! Your benches are insane! Auxiliary cooling or no? AC unit? Dry ice? Freezer?
