Sorry I missed this post bud. In SLI mode, your best over clock is the worst one of the two. If one card is a great over clocker and the other isn't, your bound to the lowest OC. They will both have to run at the same clocks.

I've seen others with different cards and haven't read any that are having issues. I'm surprised the Gigabyte version is sold out. Production on cards don't end until at least the new gen cards come out and the next gen Nvidia cards won't be out for another couple months approximately. Im betting it's only temporary.

My suggestion to you is to get the same card in your situation being the Lightning does so well over clocking that you might end up gimping yourself from the great OC you can obtain. Not saying the Gigabyte SOC can't match the Lightning but the odds are less favorable. As said before the Lightnings do very well over clocking more so than other cards. Albeit at a higher premium.

Good luck. Let us know what you do after you pull the trigger. We'll await you OC bench when you give them a run if you do SLI. Will be curious to know.

Well, I have a Gigabyte GTX580 and I think I got the record on 3dmark11 single water/air. At the moment I am playing BF3 all the time, so I havent benched so much lately. The components are pretty much equal to MSI, maybe even better, but the card is also bit more expensive.

375

I can clock it stable to above 1050MHz on GPU and 2510MHz on Memory, but run it daily at 1000/2400 in BF3 (1.13v), to keep eventual degrading and powerconsumption down. Its like 3-4 hours of BF3 a day, running it in 1080P, Ultra settings on a 120Hz screen.

The only real issue with the SoC is the cooler, which require you to have good air ventilation in your chassis. Its not directing all the air outside the back as normal GTX coolers.

Read more about the SoC here

Entry to OC and Benchmark:

[drungrin][Zogis GTX 580 Reference][925MHZ/2272MHZ@1.125V][37C/87C][26K/4.7GHZ][h2O CPU/Stock GPU]
Graphics Score: 3DMark11: P7706

I'll try to improve them later.

Thx,

For your knowledge, and everybody else, the Gigabyte GTX580 SOC will let you raise GPU voltage to 1.7v using the stock LN2 bios mode. Memory voltage can be raised to 2.2v, so there is plenty of headroom without having to hard-mod the card, if you want to dive into serious clocking.

To be able to do this you do need a tool called N580SO, which can be downloaded from hwbot under coldbug forum. MSI AB does have some issues on the SoC when it comes to voltage.

My clocking is limited because I use air-cooling on memory and VRMs and my benchenvironment is with ambient temperatures around 25c.

BTW: I just benched my BF3 setup with 3dmark11

@criskoe. You are running 2 cards. So IOH of 1.15V should be enough. All other voltages look good too. You should really use those 2 molex connections on your R3E. They really seem to help with the oc. Which card slots are you using btw?

Hey finrod... What IOH you using on that r3e for thouse 3 cards at those clocks?

Does anyone run 580's at different speeds in SLI with any success? I have a pair of vanilla EVGA cards right now, and one will do 980mhz easily with only 1113mv where the other one struggles to hit 850mhz with 1150mv. I'm kind of wary of trying to clock one up and leave the other where its at. I think the faster one could probably hit 1000mhz stable with some tweaking, will it cause an issue if I just leave the other one at 850?

I run my GTX 275's at different clock speeds without issue, so I don't see why 580's would be any different. It seems as though some misinformation is going around about different clock speeds in SLI. The faster card does NOT downclock to the slower card's speed.

No but it will be limited by the lower clocked card.

Just oc one card, or downclock the other, or do a little to both.
