I love it: 4.8GHz with air cooling.
Why not use HWiNFO 32/64? It monitors everything. It will show current, min and max for everything. So you can see all Vcore spikes. How low and how high it has been. And the program is free

btw: Congrats with a nice overclock

In regards to just the GTX 580 itself, it seems to be the perfect companion with Sandy Bridge! Yeah, I think I still want more (Crysis 2 is not liquid smooth yet lol sigh, I'm so greedy), but this isn't bad at all.

In regards to this specific 580, I like it! I thought it was going to have more weight to it, but I was pleasantly surprised because it's quite noticeably lighter than the Twin Frozr II (the Golden Edition GTX 465)!

I haven't played around with it that much, but I have already noticed that it seem to have superior cooling performance to the Golden Edition Twin Frozr II so far! Me likey.

It also seems to work perfectly with MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 (which puts ASUS Smart Doctor to absolute shame).

All in all, I am happy with my purchase! I got a very noticeable boost in performance without having to have more than one card installed.

I looked at that program, but Real Temp and CPU-Z tell me everything I want to know.

Thank you!

I think what I'm going to do next is use Prime95's Custom Blend test utilizing as much memory as I can possibly get it to use (hopefully much more than 6000MB since I have 8192).

I might also use a higher priority setting in Prime95 just OCCT uses a much higher priority than Prime95 does (OCCT is at about 7 or so while Prime95 is only at 1). I don't know if this will affect my results, but I think it's worth a shot.

Or, I might have to shoot for 4.9GHz! Although, this voltage is already getting kinda high.

I repasted and applied the heatsink again and now it is idling at 58 give or take. I'm gonna roll with that for now and buy a H60 soon.

HWiNFO really monitors it all. I find it's a great little prog. But I too use CPU-Z and realtemp in addition to it.

I think the priority only matters if you're using your computer for other things while running Prime 95. If you leave it, it will run with full priority.

I always type in 6000MB. I have 8GB RAM. This leaves about 1GB free.

Don't forget to overclock that 580 too! If you can't open the voltage control, the newest beta version of afterburner supports that on the DCIIs. I see some nice gains when I bump mine up to 900mhz. Anything puts the Asus Smartdoctor to shame.

Back on the thread topic, I would try for the 4.9ghz and if you want to keep it simple, you should grab an H80 or something like that. They seem to love higher voltages on the SB procs. I'm going to be grabbing one myself.

What are you using to monitor the temperature? I mean, what does Real Temp 3.67 say?

I know that you always use 6000MB, so that's why I said that. I'm just saying that I will try to use more. You see, LinX uses much more than just 6000, so I'll use the max amount that LinX uses and then I'll go from there.

Here is my status on my 2600K - It ran at 4.8GHz HT-ON Blend Custom 6000MB, 15 minutes per FFT for about, guessing here - 9 - 10 hours before collapsing. It hovered in the 1.372 - 1.410v Vcore range. So a tad more Vcore will make it 12 hours + stable.

However, I don't care about this for the moment. Instead I have disabled HT and are shooting for 5GHz stable. Playing at the 1.456 - 1.480V Vcore range now. Temps are under 80C while running Blend.

Core Temp changes from 29C at the low to 41C at the high.

This is a noob question but I assume 1850 is the newest BIOS yea? I just want to update to whichever is best. And how do I run this "ROM" file?

Don't worry, I'm not going to leave my 580 at stock.

Anyway, Afterburner 2.1.0. is working perfectly for me.

I'm fine: I haven't even had the Frio for 2 weeks yet. The Frio was a part of my Sandy Bridge upgrade.
