Safe to overclock plain vanilla EVGA GTX 570?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have heard some people say that you should not change the voltage at all on this card and others say that it should not exceed 1.075v although the stock BIOS allows 1.1v I found this info from a couple of posters on Tom's Hardware. They were saying that many people were complaining that it caused their cards to burn out. Do you agree with this advice, or do you think I ran into a couple of misguided people?

That depends on how hot it gets also. Check your temps. I personally would not like to see them above 75C

Not true.

I ran 2x GTX 570 Superclocked Reference editions at 1.088v at 900+/1800+ for over a year with no problems.

A few people had problems with VRM's exploding, but just watch your temps. Thousands of us were perfectly fine. thumb.gif

OC away.

Is the Superclocked edition just a factory overclocked version of card my exactly?

Yup. That is the only difference.
