Need help with safe volts gtx 580

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey im just wondering if my volts are safe to be running 24/7
my gpu voltage is 1.11 idle and in game the voltage goes to 1.6 Ive tried putting it at 1.5 but the drivers have problem with me and crash... no bsod's though or artifact
(Ive heard that going down to 275 drivers wont crash is that true?)

Ive also heard putting volts this high is bad but my temps seem to be acceptable so?

my temps run 77c under max load for core and my men and vrm temps are in 40s (and i run my fan constantly at 60% its not loud and doesn't bother me)

anyway my temps are fine (At least i think) so is my voltage OK or will i be damaging the card

Please note this is not bios modded the lightning just comes with the ability to over-volt way higher

hm, well you might have had a faulty card than cause 1.1 usually isn't harmful and if msi didnt think that was safe why would they bother letting people go above 1.1...
