I don't have a 9800gtx but I would like to add something: From all the time I have spent on the EVGA forums the one piece of information I have retained that has never done anything wrong for me is to avoid ntune like the plague. So just something to be careful of. What clocks did you manage to get anyway?
Intel C2D E6750 @ 3.52 GHz // EVGA 680i SLI Rev. A1 (P31) // 4 GB OCZ Platinum 800 MHz 4-4-4-15 // PC P&C Silencer 750 Quad // Antec P180 // EVGA 8800 GTS 512 // Samsung Syncmaster 226bw 22" LCD

WC Loop: D-Tek Fuzion V2 // Danger Den Maze 5 // Swiftech MCP655 // Swiftech MicroRes // Thermochill PA 120.2 + 4 x Noctua NF-P12

I'd have to agree with Mibs, avoid ntune, I tried it for a very short time for the GX2 and I had nothing but trouble with it, stick with rivatuner and just keep bumping it up in small incriments. I have a system I'm selling with 2 9800GTX's, I haven't OC'd them but I would think you should be able to get it to 725MHz if you've got good cooling.
