The site aludes to it, but doesn't quite point out that those tricks tend to work best if the card has basically been "underclocked" by the manufacturer. "Unlocking" one might end up enabling a faulty memor pipe (and all bets are off after that regarding how the card will perform from there on out). You'll have your best chances of success of pulling this off on one of those "budget" cards if they are fairly new (and thus more like to just be an underclocked card and not a faulty higher end card).
