What video card do you have?

I saw people BIOS modding their 5870s so they would overclock only when the GPU is at 85% load or higher, then enabled vsync so that way it would only overclock if needed.

Pretty cool for a standard feature.

GTS250, it's in the specs.

I guess that's how many levels it has, anyhow, because that's how many showed up in RivaTuner.


And that's a pretty good idea, but I don't know how comfortable I would be with it constantly going above and below stock speeds, seems to me that it could cause instability.
