Playing the Witcher 2 the DCII hovers around 61 degrees and Gigabyte at around 62 degrees. All the games I play the DCII is about 1-2 degrees cooler than the Gigabyte despite being the top card.

Very nice. I guess I will be safe to add another card then without having to buy 100 extra fans tongue.gif Hopefully I don't get any microstutter

okay I just got my 570 DCUII, I will post picks and GPU-Z after I get a decent OC on it. I just wanted to know how you guys are increasing your core voltage on this thing. I can't seem to unlock voltage control on afterburner so do you increase voltage on smartdoctor and then increase clocks on afterburner and save the profiles?

Download the beta versions of MSI afterburner, which can be found on the same page as full afterburner but click the 'download latest beta' button. Current beta is 2.2.0 beta 5 and supports voltage adjustments on non reference GTX 570s like the DCII.

oh ok, thank you for the help tongue.gif +rep

EDIT: Is it safe to run this card at 1.1v 24/7? (well actually like 16/7 since I turn it off when I go to bed) because I am planning to only go as high as 1.1v so I just wanted to know if I can just keep it at 1.1 all the time and not worry about it.

Update: Just finished Overclocking my card. 1.125v, 895 core, 1790 shaders, 1000 memory. I'm only going to apply these overclocks when I need them so it wont be 24/7 and I'm assuming that it's fine to have this card running with 1.125v because of the beefed up VRMs and better power delivery.

I was told for me, stay around 1.05-1.08V. Maybe find your max clock @ 1.08v first, then go to 1.1v and find that max clock and see if its worth it going up the extra volts. You'll always get people saying 1.1v is safe for 24/7 and you'll get others saying you shouldn't. But yea, I would try 1.08v first, find that max clock, the go to your 1.1 you want. It might be a big help to go to 1.1v or it could be like a 20MHz increase, which will get you like nothing, only higher temps.

So give that a try. I would also set a manual or 'user defined' fan control on msi afterburner. I've got a custom profile for my fans and it won't help too much when doing a stress test, just manual the fan to like 80%, but in gaming like bfbc2, my 560 won't hit anything over 52C, typically around 46-48C. So hope that helps too. The user defined control is just the 2nd tab in the MSI afterburner settings panel. Easy to use.

I have the ASUS Thunderbolt card on my Crosshair V that fits into the PCI 1 slot. The only way for me to get it to fit with my DCII is to have the Thunderbolt right on top of the of the card. How bad is this going to affect my temps? Pic below

and yes, I did rig up a Noctua fan to see how the temps would look, but was too tired to actually do it. Waiting on extension cables so I can clean that mess up.

Does anyone have experience under volting their GPU? Looks like I'm stable on my overclocked setting of 915MHz (850MHz stock) and going from stock voltages of 1.025v to 1.000v...no errors...I'll try gaming and see how it works.

Always heard stuff about over volting the gfx card too much but nothing on the end of under volting...as long as its stable am I ok? save the card with lower temps maybe...
post #519 of 1059
I'm assuming that as long as your stable and you don't have any display failures then you would be alright to under volt the card.

I've got an Asus Xonar Essence STX directly above my GTX 570 DCII and it's fine. Being behind the card shouldn't affect the temperature at all.
