My card could do just over 1010 @ 1.150 plus all the over voltage on the card... 1.293 when at full load, fans set to the highest speed. Temps were in the upper 80s and it idles at 34c-ish. After the mod i could benchmark the card to1043 @ 1.293v shroud fans max, and 2x rad fans at 2500 rpm (loud but for benchmark purposes). Temps were 52-56 max depending on app (not any type of burntest, just games and such) and ive seen 17c startup temps with idle moving up to 19c max for hours afterwards.
Two matrix platinum.... im so jelly

Here's was my first post to the thread comparing the stock cooler to the 920.

Configuration: Unigine Heaven, 950 MHz @ 1275 mV, stock Antec TIM and fans
For those of you wondering if you can run 2 separate instances of the Antec Chill Control software with 2 Antec 920s in your system, here is the reply I received from Antec support.

Unfortunately you can only control one kuhler at a time. but if you got the 620, it has a built in sensor and both will adjust to your computers temperature.

Actually, I didn't think having 2 Matrix cards would be such a hassle! The heat output from the two cards is ridiculous! I had to upgrade to a Haf X from a Corsair 650D in order to adequately cool the cards. The Haf X provided more PCI slots for air and a side intake fan.

1.175v shouldn't be too high as long as the temps are under control right?


Its not your core's temp thats a worry, its the power regulators.

It *should* be, as long as your VRam and power regs are being cooled properly... as they appear to be now wink.gif

I cant tell from your pic, do you have heatsinks on them?

hm ok.
oh those weren't my pics
but yes i still have the heat plate on them, and i plan to keep it there. if i remove the heat plate, i'll put on heatsinks.
probably swiftech ones, http://www.swiftech.com/mc800smccoolingkit.aspx

or just the full on swiftech heat plate http://www.swiftech.com/gtx580-hs.aspx

Oh oops, I have had a loong day... sorry redface.gif

That said, my advice still stands, sink em and cool em.

As too which heatsink, what ever your budget allows. Either of those will do the job nicely thumb.gif

Over Volting runs the risk of degrading the transistors in the long run. It's a reasonable guess that flashing the bios to get there puts you in that territory.

I don't know the physics behind it. I work with chip diesigners and have heard it discussed many times, especially when selecting a cell (transistor) library for use with some sub-micron process.

Is there a reason why most members are using the Kuhler 620 units instead of a 920?
They're cheaper, and you don't really need anything better than a 620 to cool graphics cards that aren't over clocked to a crazy level. My GTX 480 gets to 72 degrees on furmark with a 620, so I'd have to unlock the BIOS to need anything more powerful than a 620.

I really am liking the latest from Asetek & Thermaltake:

248

Only $109 on the egg and Amazon.

Im wondering if i could squeeze three of them into my case....headscratch.gif

How much do you have to overclock a card to need a 240 rad?

Don't know really. For me if it could keep it cooler and reduce the fan noise even further, then its a big + for me.

Oh, I just plugged my antec 620 directly into a molex lol
