Couple simple questions regarding my 580

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now I run a 1080p monitor with my 580, I am curious if I plugged in a small VGA monitor either to my motherboard or GPU will it degrade my performance? I mainly want the small VGA off to the side so I can easily use skype and monitor some temps.

Also, right now my 580 is at 1.125v with a 900Mhz core clock. I have the ARCTIC COOLING ACCELERO XTREME plus II on the way to help with my temps. Would it be safe to push the OC a little bit further? right now the OC is stable and I have had no issues.. i am still fairly new to the OCing and I am not sure when to stop OCing.

Any help is appreciated!

Yes. Max most people tend to go on air is 1.15v, and that's the max allowable voltage with a reference BIOS. Provided you keep your temperatures under 90'C full load (should be no problem with the AXP, which should keep it under 70 tops in all likelihood) you can easily use 1.15v for 24/7 use.

The GTX 580 is rated for 98'C max temp before throttling. Below 90'C is typically safe for most people. 1.15v is the top BIOS-allowable voltage for reference cards and the highest most are willing to go on air cooling. Some adventurous people with aftermarket-cooled cards like the Asus ROG Matrix are pushing 1.23v on air and others are going above 1.15v on reference cards with a BIOS flash, but personally that's not territory I'd enter for warranty reasons.

This is all correct but sir I must say your rig's name is exquisite heart.gif
