Zotac GTX 580 brand new, artifacts already? - Page 4

post #31 of 85
Hey guys, I've heard it before but what exactly does everyone mean by 'artifacts'?

Oh and while i'm here, I'm about to start my search to do some OC'ng on my Stock 6970. Any recommended guides to read?

Cheers.

Personally I up'd the voltages up a notch and also up'd the stock overclock. Was stable for me at 830. Now I'm at 900 with 1.075 stable. I want 950 and up!

I synced all of my cards up to 772MHz at 1.025V. Overclocking the cards haven't really yielded a big enough difference to warrant the extra heat and power draw for the games I play yet; so they will run at stock unless this winter's release of games (which, I am VERY excited for ) says otherwise.

Thanks ya'll...I just picked up another 580 to run in SLI...holy smokes, Crysis is an absolute joke now! All settings maxed except 2x AA, and I got 79fps in the Ambush benchmark...man 16xq AA would prob still be around 65-ish...haha amazing

Metro is still taxing....but omg, instead of a slide show, I can watch everything very smoothly...not 60fps average...but still very enjoyable

What surprised me the most...haha witcher 2 with uber.....oh my goodness...no more slide show! haha

Glad to see you are enjoying those cards! You've got a monster resolution there, but those two should keep you happy for quite some time to come.

Hello,

I just kind of found it funny how next increment in voltage is 1.013. What made you guys pick .013 increments?
