It comes with a huge factory OC(822mhz) & is capable of oc'ing much further.
Hope you like my suggestion.
I get the impression that that card is gonna run hotter than the others, due to the one small fan on it and the passive heatsink cooling, as apposed to the gpus with 2 fans on top?

Ill be buying from either scan, ccl online, ebuyer or overclockers.co.uk

I believe it will be overclockers.co.uk probably, seen as 9/10 there usually the cheapest, but we'll see.

Also about reference cards blowing up, it is true nothing has happened recently. But it is my belief that when it was happening 50%-80% of the people who posted in that thread claiming they had fried there card, were either lying(no pics to prove it), or disabled the over current protection.

I bought my two gtx 570s (twin frozr II so they are reference) right before all the 570 vrm fuss. I overclock my cards all the time for folding, up to 900mhz core. No problems yet.


EDIT: sorry op, didnt realize you were in the U.K. Looks like newegg open box is out of the picture
So, if its true that these cards blow up due to people taking overvolt off, does that mean you cant increase from stock volt at all, or only up to like 1.087mV?

to be honest, right now in the uk, you're best bet on a 570 is the msi tf3 pe, at 250 it's the cheapest compared to other good non-reference cards

asus dc2 is a 3 slot, you might have problem with sli in the future, but man it cools well

gainward phantom, great looking card, cools well, 2.5 slot, but you're gonna be looking at near 300

evga classified, over 300 quid? way too expensive for what it's worth in the uk

if you can find them, the palit cards are normally pretty good with price/performance, they are non-reference pcb(good with vrms), non-reference cooler(cools pretty well, although i have heard people say they are not the quietest ones), but have ek waterblocks readily available

There's 3 GTX 570 models worth buying: ASUS DCII, MSI TFII/TFIII, Gainward Phantom. If you can find a TFIII that would be the best choice.

I can get a TFIII for £250, If id of been shopping two week ago I could have got a gtx 480 for £200, which i believe is just as good if not better than gtx 570

I had mine folding at 1.1v with no problems. I would recommend the MSI reference or the TFIII/DCII if you were going to pick models.

GTX 480 sounds like a hairdryer. Your ears are worth more than £50.
