not sure what shield ur talking about. i dont normally see high temps but then i cant see them while im in the game. the video cards are stock with the stock overclock of 490/1300 sorry i just noticed my sig was off on that. processor overclocked to 267x10.5 = 2.8ghz running a divider of 5/6 i think i can check later. the divider doesnt seem to come out where they are suppose to cause ram is only at 216mhz. loosened the ram to 2.5-3-2-5 no memtest errors at all. mem is also running at 2.8 volts. i dont think the ram is the problem as i am stable all the way up to 230 on them just trying to find a divider and multi to do it as the dividers arent coming out right. at the moment i am using the 623-2 bios as it seems to play extremely nice with this ram. well hopefully that helps.
