[Update] Does my GTX 570 SC suck? - Page 3

My PC's overall overclocking potential is average. My GPU is a fairly good OCer, my RAM can do maybe 50-80MHz(terrible), and my CPU is average. BTW, did you use stock mem clocks when you tested? If not, i would try for a bit higher on the core clock before touching the memory.

Whoops, I meant to type @ 890Mhz not 980Mhz.

First i would install the latest stable driver, then run the card completely stock on some GPU intensive games such as Crysis, Crysis 2(Crysis 3... JK) ect. A legally free option is to run the Heaven cut scenes(this runs on startup, so no need to select it) overnight on its max settings.

Based on 3DMark11s official stock GTX580 score of P6600, my GTX570 is approximately equal at 900core, and 2000mem.

I tried bumping my Voltage to 1100mV and then bumped my Core to 950 and left Memory at stock, I opened up 3dMark 11 and as soon as the test was about to start, my computer restarted. I'm going to try beta drivers, see if that helps.

And I'm downloading the benchmark software right now, so I'll try stock clocks for a few days, see if I can get it at least stable with different drivers. Thanks for your help.

I really doubt your GTX 570 is capable of 950core with only 1.1V. Try 860-880core at 1.1V.

Other than that, good luck! And let us how it goes.

Do you guys change anything in the NVIDIA Control Panel under "Manage 3D Settings"?

Here's mine, does it look right?

Are there any BIOS settings I'm overlooking?

Your NVIDIA global settings are the same as mine, which is stock.

First of all, did you find out if your card is faulty? Make sure you find out before doing any BIOS flashing, if that's what your thinking. AFAIK, you aren't doing anything wrong with your OC attempts other than overestimating your cards potential.

Yeah i've tried stock mem and just upping the core/shader clock but i still get a driver crash. I've given up on trying though, right now i'm just waiting to step up to a 580.

I don't know if it's faulty, but it's unstable with stock voltages and stock clocks.

I was able to get stable with 1100mV, 875/2000, and under 55°C. I played Crysis 2 for about 45 minutes, passed some 3DMark 11 runs, passed a few runs of Unigine Heaven, and passed OC Scanner for 45 minutes. Usually those programs would crash within a minute of testing. I don't plan on keeping it at that setting 24/7, probably only when I'm gaming. With those settings, how long do you guys think this card will last?

Should I exchange it for another GTX 570? Chances are, I'll probably get one that clocks better and is at least stable at stock.

At this point, i would highly recommend you send EVGA support an email regarding your unstable SC GTX570. One of these two things will happen:
They solve your stock instability problem, or
They get you to RMA yours, and hopefully you get a better OCer

Its a win, win situation.
