Do 9800GTX share the same clock speed increments as 8800 Series?

within 10 minutes of firing up my 9800GTXs up i had each one of them over 800MHz. stock coolers set to 100% and no volt mods, they all ran 820MHz~830MHz stable for benching. so yeah, should have a good bit more in it.
obviously there is the risk of damage when pushing anything so go slow, take your time, and keep an eye on temps. also, if you set the fan to 100% and during benching the fan speed drops to 35%, don't be alarmed. this is a problem NVIDIA hasn't been able to fix yet. basically, when the card reaches 60C or around there, the fan kicks down. this might just be happening in SLI though, not sure.
