I've installed the GTX 460 in a system with the following hardware configuration:

AMD 1090T X6 Phenom II BE
2x2Gb Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3-1600
Swiftech H20-320 Edge
128Gb Crucial C300 RealSSD
Icy Dock 2.5" Adapter
1Tb WD Caviar Black
1Tb Hitachi Deskstar
LG 8x BD-RE 16x DVD-RW
OCZ Fatal1ty 750w
Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD Edition
Windows 7 Home 64bit

Using the latest version of GPU-Z we see that the OEM card does in fact report 336 shaders, indicating it has a full GF104 core and not one that has been cut like the SE. However it operates at a default 650Mhz core, 1700Mhz memory clock like that used by the SEs. The Device ID is 0E24 not 0E22 like the standard 460s, which could cause some problems if you try to use an OEM card in SLI with a retail card.

nVidia Inspector confirms what we've seen in GPU-Z, namely that this is a 336sp count, 650Mhz/1700Mhz clocked OEM GTX 460. We also see that the OEM version has reduced voltage of just 0.95v compared to a reference GTX 460 1Gb at 1.08v default.

Let's see how the OEM version overclocks, and what kind of power and temperature we can expect.
