haha, i know i kinda jumped ahead by updating my sig. but officially i'm not on the members list yet as you can see, will have pics posted in a few hours after I get back home.

as regards to overclock, i've only just got my card 2 days ago, lol, played a bit of medal of honour at stock speeds and noticed an improvement at 1080p compared to my old 470 with a 100mhz overclock.

i was just about to ask you about your overclock actually, what temps do you get at your settings? and at what fan settings and what voltage? i'm thinking about clocking my 580 at somewhere between 850-900mhz, will get to overclock it over the weekend i guess rolleyes.gif
post #14 of 1059
well i got upto 900MHz and kept my temps under 90C stressing but on average in games my temps dont go past 72c-75c and i leave it on auto settings to cooling and even with a my current OC of 882/1764 @ 1.100V it takes me about 1.25ish to get to 900MHz and i know i can still push farther on it but i dont want to push this card untill i get a new PSU as my 550W is pushing it as they recommend a 600W for the 580 lol

if you are going to OC just keep bumpen up the Core by 5-10Mhz at a time and test it. when it starts to get unstable then just bump up the voltage a little until it gets stable.
Remember not all the Asus 580 CUII's will hit 900+Mhz as they dont seem to bin there cards like the MSI lightning for example

thanks for the photo, nice little card you got there smile.gif

before i update you onto the members list, i'll need something extra from you.

i've just updated the thread that everyone has to submit a gpuz validation or screenshot, once i have that from you, you're in wink.gif

alrighty then, here are some of my 580 photos, no close up shots of the cooler of the card unfortunately, as i installed my card into the 3rd pciex16 slot so that it's as far away from my cpu and northbridge as possible for better temps biggrin.gif

here's a shot of the back plate which i absolutely love smile.gif

thanks for the info and advice, much appreciated smile.gif

so you need 1.1 volts for 882, that's not too bad i'd imagine. i've heard that asus don't bin their cards, but to be honest i don't think i will push my card too far for 24/7 use, not anytime soon anyway, might just clock it at 850 for a while and go from there i guess. surely 850 should be relatively hassle free right? i sure hope so rolleyes.gif

ok does my 5850 asus count-lol. Not sure why but my core clock was only at 950-i run it at 1000/1275. Just switched it back.

UPDATED!

of course it counts, good to finally have a amd card up there in the list smile.gif

that's pretty impressive clocks you got there, what temps does it reach at 950mhz?
