Default Question about Undervolting a GTX 480

I've been searching but haven't been able to find much information on this.

I want to undervolt my 480 beyond what is stable at a reference clock speed. That being said, it seems fully stable at .963. I want to take it down to .900. How much of a difference does lowering memory clock make in the voltage required? I've been toying with it a bit, but I don't want to go too far with it until I know it's even worthwhile. Mainly because I don't want to drop a folding unit for it.

Where are you reading .963 from? Did you pull out the trustee volt meter? If not then just leave it as it, its too much trouble and not worth your risk.
