Quoted for Troof.
Well I have no complaitns about my 6970's, they perform very close to 580's and have yet to have any driver issues.

Only reason I am upgrading is because I had a great deal which makes it a free upgrade over my 6970's.

But I'll definitely enjoy them.

Oh don't get me wrong, I had no real complaints save for my eardrums having to listen to a pair of T700's turning up next to me. At the same time, they didn't wow me like the 580's did, it was just kind of "meh, they work".

My first 6970 Lightning arrived in March of this year... 4 weeks later my second MSI Lightning arrived after RMA'ing my first... Last month my MSI 580 TFII arrived from MSI after my second Lightning failed..

Sooooo glad to be green.

I heard there was a lot of problems with the lightning 6970's, I wonder why. The Lightning 580 seems to be a great card.

Should I bother even overclocking my EVGA GTX 580 Superclocked? Temps are in the mid 80s during load.

Fans are set to auto and I like them that way cause I don't want them on 100% all the time.

To be honest I'm a little scared to overclock this card, the last video I overclocked was a Geforce 2 GTS back in 2001 for 20 minutes just so I could see 3dmark 2001 run a little better

And when I use EVGA OC Scanner in Fullscreen it shows all the necessary information (Temps, speeds, etc...) but it doesn't update it at all, so have zero information on temps or errors etc...

Um you can, you have a reference card so the cooling is not the best, but you can make a user defined fan control in MSI afterburner, which should bring it down 5-10 degrees. I am around 50% fan speed at full load. But when you overclock use programs like Furmark to test temps, Use heaven and 3dmark11 for actually stability and for artifact checking, then once you find a pretty stable area let heaven sit for 8-10 hours (depending on if you card can take it)

You don't want to be much hotter than mid 80s. Nvidia specifies the cards max temperature at 97C and I would want to stick to 10C less than that, so you really don't have the headroom to overvolt unless you get your temperatures down. You also don't want to be using things like Furmark or OCscanner, they initiate the cards overcurrent protection (OCP) which will throttle the cards clocks down to 405MHz on the core rendering any information you hope to gain from the program such as stability, max temperatures, or max power draw to be incorrect. For stability I recommend Unigine Heaven and whatever the most stressful games you own are.

I'll use Furmark to test temps and 3dmark11 or Heaven for long term stability, but checking for artifacts is really hard sometimes and those programs don't have that function, so should I use EVGA OC Scanner to test for artifacts first before I test for temps or long term stability?

I don't plan on increasing voltage, just a few dozen Mhz increase would do fine. How much of an increase could I expect if I don't increase voltage? Stock core is at 797, shader is at 1594, and Memory is at 2025.
