    EVGA Precision shows lower clock on graph

    I have a BFG GTX260 OCX. The clock on the right is displayed at 655 which is correct but on the graph it only goes up to 648 during gaming. Why is that? I'm not overcocking. Everything is at default speeds.

    What lighting to use?

    I have a Lian-Li v1000z case and want to add some light in the case. I don't want anything too excessive but just to have a soft glow on the components. I don't know if a 4" cold cathode would be too much or not enough. Or maybe LED's would be better. Any advise?
