GTX 570 SLI: Base EVGA vs Classified vs Twin Frozr - Page 3

post #21 of 23
I've had the gtx 570 classified for about a week now. So far I'm dissapointed. Anything much over the default clock (822 Mhz) and I get artifacting and freezing/crash. I can't get it stable at 850, even when I raise the voltage to 1100. But im going to try an RMA and get a second Classified for SLI.

Hopefully this is just a horrible overclocker and it'll be resolved with replacement.

If I were you, I would save the cash and buy reference. The reference design is not as bad as people make it out to be. My DirectCU II Asus is actually paired with a Zotac reference due to space issues, and its a great card. It actually overclocks better than my Asus and requires less voltage.

Besides, your CPU is gonna bottle neck 570s in SLI in some games, so you shouldn't even need the non-reference design for extreme overclocking. I notice some bottle necking with my 570s and I've got a 4.5Ghz sandy bridge CPU!

It's really starting to look like the classifieds are a bad call. I'm also back to second guessing the VRAM limitations of the 570, I had gotten myself to a point that I felt confident 1280 would be enough for 1920x1200 but I'm now I'm not so sure and if I got 570 SLI and couldn't play BF3 on ultra at full resolution I'd be seriously pissed. Can anyone who really knows what they're talking about give me some input on this?
