Overclocking + availability of Twin Frozr III GTX570?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I ordered my 570 the other night - and now I go check the product page on Newegg and its out of stock. Luckily, mine still says shipped so I assume I got one of the last ones. Should be here on Thursday or so. Its also sold out at Amazon...is this a temporary thing? I was hoping to maybe go SLI with another in the fall

As for overclocking...I'm not very educated when it comes to the GPU. I overclocked my CPU fine, and I've done slight bumps on my 460. I've read that the 570 can reach 580-level performance. I'm guessing that requires more than the factory OC. Can you get to 580-level performance on stock voltage? If not, what voltage is required? (and is that a safe 24/7 voltage?). I've never messed with GPU voltage...is it just like the CPU where you slowly bump it up while testing for stability? What benchmark programs do you recommend?

I know, I know - a lot of questions. I appreciate any help/info as always.

The MSI GTX 570 TFIII are just hard to find and get sold out very quickly but they will return! You will be able to get another one later for SLI.

I am not too sure when a 570 OC becomes a 580 but people have been saying ~850 core clock.

As for overclocking - all cards are different. Most likely you will have to raise the voltage a bit to get to 850 core clock. I have the TFIII in SLI and have them both overclocked to 870 coreclock with a +51 of voltage using MSI afterburner.

For testing out my overclocks - I use Heaven and just playing games.

Ah, thanks. Is that voltage considered "safe" for 24/7 use? I'm sure the factory OC on the TFIII's will be pretty powerful on their own (in SLI I don't see myself NEEDING to OC further anytime soon) but if I can get better frames without risking a dead card or two - why not?

Yeah that voltage is very safe. I agree with you on on not needing to OC'ing them when you get SLI - I just did it to see if my cards overclocked well and they do! I can easily overclock it more - but like you said... there really is no point with 2 of these amazing cards. I was playing metro 2033 yesterday and guru shows stock 570 sli gets an average of 54 fps. I got around ~70 with my overclock. Love these cards man - hope you enjoy it too!

You can easily to 50-100mhz on both the core and the memory on stock voltage if I recall correctly, this is because of the higher quality components and parts (militrary class 2, etc) that give it more headroom in terms of overclocking.

You can tell because it uses less power compared to the reference GTX 570s, even when the MSI one has a slight increment of the core and memory speeds.

I'd say you'll need to bump a bit more voltage if you want to reach GTX 580 performance, but that shouldn't be too much and you should have a easier time compared to all the other brands.
