you know what, i will add you anyway, just gonna list your card with the dc cooler as 'stock'. btw, can you upload your gpu-z validation again, but not as a download link please IN biggrin.gif

Wasn't trying to join i sold the card to another ocn member, But it was a awesome card looking at the 570, but i already have a ek hf gpu only block and wanted to know if it would work.
Sadly it wont since there isn't any heatsink on the vrm im better going full cover.
I'll Be joining soon thought with the 570 version biggrin.gif hope its as good a clocker as the 560ti was biggrin.gif
matter of fact, there are heatsinks on the 570 vrms, however no heatsinks on the vrams though. hope to see your watercooled 570 soon, and don't forget to take some shots of the card in the rig with the dcii cooler before you go water! rolleyes.gif

I actually used Heaven 2.0 becuase the other versions dont seem to work for me. This is the error i get when trying to run Heaven 2.5 (also my gpu-z verification),
http://www.overclock.net/image/id/1125129/width/600/height/338
alright i see, looks like you need a bit of windows update before you can run heaven 2.5, but yeah, no big deal really, 2.0 is still a good tool to check for oc stability, but it just makes comparison to different versions a bit off. IN biggrin.gif

Funny thing is that I sent my old ordinary Asus GTX 570 for RMA and got this card back!
consider yourself lucky! now overclock that triple slot beast! IN biggrin.gif

I want to buy an Asus DirectCUII card, but i am stuck.
- Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII PCI-E Graphics Card
- Asus nVIDIA 3D GeForce GTX 560 TI DirectCu II TOP Graphics Card (1GB)
- Asus GeForce GTX 570 742MHz 1280MB PCI-Express HDMI (DirectCU II)
There is about £100.00 difference in the first card and the second card.
Which of these cards is worth money you are paying for?
Like is the extra £100 worth the preformance difference you get from the gtx 570 and the gtx 560ti (830MHz)?
Thanks In Advance.
well, it's no secret that the asus cards are not binned, so there are literally no difference between the first 2 cards except the 2nd one is overclocked higher.
now stepping up to a 570, you do get more vram, more cores, more bandwith, but do they worth a 100 quid? yes and no really...if you don't mind sli, then get the 560ti now and pair up in the future. but if you want single card solution, then the 100 quid extra is worth it as overclocking it would bring it roughly to 580's performance. i know it's a bit late, but hope it helps wink.gif

the 570s are generally pretty good overclockers, but bear in mind that not all are. hopefully with a new psu unit, you'll get better overclocks on your 570. you're updated at stock for now, once you got a decent overclock, post back gpu-z and i'll update. IN biggrin.gif

I forgot to post an update, but since I got a that new PSU (850W Chieftec if someone's interested) I was able to push the clocks to 850/1700 on core/shaders and 1100 on memory, all that on 1.1V. Those clocks are rock stable on Unigine Benchmark and BF3. And I guess that's all that matters since that game was the reason I bought the card in first place rolleyes.gif

I'll try to post an updated gpu-z screenshot tonight

Hey guys i need some help i am building a new computer and I want to crossfire two Asus EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5, I need to know what motherboard would be suitable to do so. As well as cooling issues. This card is massive probably one of the biggest cards on the market. I heard if these cards get extremely hot and then cold the cu2 will bend and i will have problems later on. I dont want my second card to run at 78 degrees.


So far i have the
Cooler Master Haf X case.
Intel I7 2600k 3.4 ghz
Corsair Vengance LP 8gb 1600
and the asus 6950

As well bought this motherboard
Asus p8p67 Pro (rev3.1), But going to give it to my brother if it doesnt work. Which I already have a feeling it won't work. But not 100 percent sure.

2xtriple slot 6950s will fit on your asus p9p67 pro, but, i did say will fit, meaning yes they will fit (lol) but granted the top card will run much hotter than the bottom one. now this subject has been talked here a few times already, if you do a bit of digging you will find answers. but put it short, for sli or xfire'ing triple slot cards, ideally you want a mobo layout that has 2 pcie slots which are spaced 4 slots apart (the p8p67 has 3 slots spacing). and i have to say those sort of mobos on the p67 platform are pretty rare, a few more choices on the z68 platform, be prepared to pay a large premium though!

the p8p67 pro rev3.1 costs around what, $160 usd? at that price point, i don't think you can buy any mobo with 2 pcie x16 slots placed 4 slots apart. to get those boards, you need to dip in way beyond the $200 mark! here you have a few choices asus m4e p67 @ $310 (ouch!), asrock z68 extreme7 gen 3 @ $290 or evga z68 ftw @ $260 now, only you can justify whether it is worth it to spend the extra $100+ just to run 2x asus triple slot 6950s in xfire, or sacrifice the aesthetics and get a different branded dual slot 6950 to fit on your p8p67 pro rolleyes.gif
