    As aeneral rule the nF3 chip runs hot, and will benefit from some air from a case fan or general air flow. Arctic silencer gpu coolers draw their air there which helps. Mine was running over 50C (by thermal probe) when I got some air on it it dropped to the mid-30's. You shouldn't need more than an extra 0.1v for air-cooled overclocks.

    I'm running 275 at 1.5 volts.

    Re: voltages

    From my experiences with the ZNF 150/250 and the VNF 250, raising the chipset voltage is necessary to hold 300+ HTT but you will need some additional VDimm as well (past BIOS capabilities). Other than that, 1.7 is more than enough.
