Best EVGA GTX570?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking at purchasing an EVGA GTX570 since I have had good experiences with EVGA in the past. I was wondering if anyone had any input on which of the models/coolers perform the best?

It seems like the DoubleShot would provide the best cooling since it has two fans on it, but there are some other more expensive models like the Classified, as well. Is the classified higher priced only because it comes at higher factory clocks, or does it also offer superior cooling?

Any input on the different models would be appreciated.

The classified will be a higher binned chip so it will most likely have a better max overclock. However the DS will run cooler.

The Classified is the way to go.
It's got a beefed-up VRM design, meant to correct the weakness of the reference design...

That's the one I would go for....

What the 2 previous posters said. Evga classified is pricier, but is worth it. No weak vrm cooling. But heres another suggestion for 570. MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III. Non reference pcb and can OC to 950/2300 on pretty much every chip with superior cooling.

What voltage do you need to get it that high? I'm at 1.1v and only 925/2100.

It's not mostly about the cooling.

It's the fact that regular (reference design) 570 cards are using a 4+2 power phase design...

so a regular 570 has 4 power phases for the GPU and 2 for the vRAM...

The EVGA 570 Classified, has more GPU power phase, for a sturdier design...
The MSI TFIII is the same...beefed-up power stages...the ASUS DirectCuII also has that....

Why? Because the reference 570s have a weak power design...
