Have you got a gtx570 that didn't blow up?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I've read so much about these gtx570's that blow up and VRM's are to blame. I've not had problems, and I read again and again people quoting that the 570's are crap, stay away from them, they don't overclock, yada yada yada. I think alot of people spreading around this information is just from what they've read here http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/9291...led-570-a.html It bothers me because if you'd make a "have you killed a 5870" thread you'd get just as many hits, or other cards. I do think there was a bad initial batch probably, this would explain why some died at stock. But if all were as weak (and fire hazards, lol) as people are spreading rumors around, there would be a large lawsuit and recalls.

Lets hear about some 570's that didn't blow up?


Mine are doing fine, highest I've benched them are at 1.1v and 900core 2100 memory.

Daily gaming I keep it at 1.050v 820core 2000 mem.

Also when I'm not using the computer it BOINC's at 1.038v 800core and 1900 memory 24/7.

925 core (Might be a bit less, i'm at work so can't check)

2000 memory

1.1v

On air, hits around 85c on folding. Hasn't blown up

Reference gigabyte... "weak VRMs" according to others say, but has been folding 10 hours a day at 1.1V 895Core (bad clocker) without any problems.

It's a luck of draw

EVGA GTX 570 HD...stock voltages stable at 800/1600/2100 (.987 volts) hottest I've seen it get is around 65 with a custom 1:1 fan profile after hours of Rift. I love it and don't even bother defending the HD series anymore to people.

"The problem with the 570's is that they throttle to keep power within limits. Because of this maximum power draw limit, they were not designed to handle more (as most cards are). Even if you increase cooling substantially (my core was at -40°C under load, VRM's were definitely around 0°C), it cannot handle the increased load because it lacks the robust power delivery needed.

The goal of this thread is to collect information to pinpoint the issue so no one else experiences this."



You didn't see a thread about 5870's VRM's being problematic because they had a more robust delivery system in general.

You wouldn't see a lawsuit about 570s blowing up with their current VRMs. They seem to be fine with a mild overclock or at stock, that's what they were designed for. It's just that there are enthusiasts here on OCN who like to push their cards to the core's limits, and for those people these VRMs are the limiter.

Glad to see your 570 is serving you well though.

I have two MSI cards underwater, only bumped it to 800 with stock .95v though

All 3 of my evga gtx 570s folded at 820/1640 at .988 volts. Never went over 65C on air lol.

To anyone that has killed a 570 learn to oc noobs and then learn to control temperatures.

I had a 570 for a few months @ 900 core and 1.05v.

Worked great. Traded it to my friend and it died the same day @ a higher voltage and OC. I helped him with the RMA ofcourse

Read part of that thread, one guy blew his up under liquid nitrogen. VRM's were at 0 C. I doubt you're keeping them any cooler.
