Those are some official BIOS used in EVGA's 570's.

Okay, well obviously you should run it on stock for a little while and make sure she is still healthy.

Now, what I did with mine was a backed up my BIOS with GPUz, then I downloaded a different BIOS for a GTX 580 with higher speeds. (I'd recommend sticking with the same manufacturer). I did not flash directly to that BIOS.

I then looked up the model that went with the BIOS I selected and made sure it wasn't one that was used in a card that had high returns (Palit screwed up the BIOS to its first attempt at an overclocked 580). Sure enough, it did. So, I deleted that BIOS and found a different one for which the card had no bad reviews.

Then I used NiBitor to open the Fermi Voltage and Clocks for the downloaded BIOS. I then modified my original BIOS so that it had identical values (and there were a ton of values).

Then I flashed my card with my modified BIOS. The reason that I did not just flash the BIOS I downloaded is that that could create a checksum error.

I can still further OC my card with software, but now I have a new baseline that is faster and more stable. Also, Fermi voltages are pretty sophisticated in the BIOS. Even some manufacturers have screwed them up (Palit had to discontinue one it's 580 models because of this).

I would NOT reccomend. Nvidia uninstaller usually gets everything. Driver sweeper had been know to brick mobo drivers and cpu drivers in the process of GFX drivers.
Not even close. Whoah.
  1. You don't "brick software". Dude, it is SOFTWARE.
  2. The Nvidia installer in the newer drivers DOES NOT usually get everything. It leaves all kinds of junk.
  3. The driver sweeper will only remove your mobo drivers with your graphics drivers is if you select both of them accidentally. It can also mess up the registry if you don't know what you are doing.

Based on that last picture, My mobo had similar issues and it died 3 days later :S

I know, but for the avergae user I would NOT reccomend that. Usually NVidia does all you need. Have you checked the latest N vidia installers? They are leaps and bounds better than the old ones. Trust me, I know. I spent 2 frickin months trying to solve TDR errors. No driver program fixed it. at all.

Why do I think DS is bad?
Well, here you go.
All new Windows OSs have some sample Nvidia and ATI drivers preinstalled so you can boot into windows upon installing new hardware.Yes, they are crap drivers, but they'll get you to internet.

Now, if you cripple those, or the ds operation goes bad, you can lose maybe 2 hours of your time trying to fix it. Read a little bit. People who did that to their AMD cards then had troubles because the driver installer from the AMD site COULD NOT find a certain driver file. I would only use Driver Sweeper very sparingly. It's like if I give you pills to kill the natural bacteria living inside your intestines Would that be any good?

So:
What do I base this on?
After getting srsly tired with vista and its TDR, I ran the Nvidia uninstaller and the number of remaining Nvidia driver folders and files in system32 was very, very similar to the number of Nvidia files on a CLEAN windows 7 install (no drivers).
