Just a thought. Maybe you could just do up a couple extensions with black and yellow and send them my way?

I might. Gotta see what I got connector wise.

One of these days we might have to organize an OCN get together. There are a fair number of people in the area, and I think it would be a blast to all get together.
As far as the GTX 580's ... they are what I currently have in my current main rig. I'm just going to transfer them from that machine to this one, then move over the GTX 560Ti that I recently bought on sale to my old machine to keep that going.
I'm really not all that keen on the current nVidia series. The performance isn't all that much better, although they are more power efficient, and since the 6xx series are voltage locked, a good GTX 580 can pretty much own a GTX 680 in overclocking. Also, I am BIG TIME into doing Folding@Home, and the older 5xx series cards typically get higher PPD than the 6xx series.
Maybe if nVidia gets their act together with the 7xx or 8xx series, I will upgrade the video subsystem.
That would be great. Theres a VA OC club too, of users who might make the drive up, though most are in southern VA.
Very solid reasons, I do feel sad that kepler does not fold well. I am reasonably active with F@H aswell.

How high can 580s OC? A good number of users get 1300MHz +, a larger margin 1200mhz. Small number got 1400mhz.

I really don't push mine as hard as they can go. I typically run mine at 950MHz for 24/7 duty. Others will do 975MHz or even 1000MHz. Most people will be in the 900-975 range. I've had mine up over 1000MHz for 24 hours a couple times, but I sort of chickened out and dialed it back a notch. I might go back to trying to find a higher, stable, number again. Stock voltage on my cards is 1.013V, but I've run it up to 1.1V for long periods of time with no ill effects.

My 3 GTX 560Ti's run 24/7 (on air no less) at 900MHz, up from 850MHz stock. I know I could push them harder, but I'm more about long term stability than pushing them harder. I've had them up to 925MHz on a 1.080 V core for a day before they started to "glitch".

Yea, I have my 580 set at 950MHz for 24/7 use as well. Seems to be a sweet spot for MHz/Voltage. My 560ti on the other hand gets temperamental with higher overclocks when Folding.

What voltage are you running at 950? I have mine usually set at 1.100V, and temps stay at 53-54C on one card and 56-57C on the 2nd card. I've debated on lowering the voltage to maybe 1.080V or so just to make sure I don't shorten the life too much, but not sure if that will make all that much of a difference or not.

1075v:



EDIT: Additional info: The CPU (3770K)is stock clocks right now as my Crucial M4 has had firmware problems and has been faulty when OCing in the BIOS. Before I folded with the 3770k at 4.3GHz.

Very nice.

Well, the orange Cougar fans showed up today. Not half bad looking. The orange looks pretty good and will match the existing oranges pretty well. I'll have to fire them up to see how noisy they are.

That will be a nice addition, hopefully you like them, because it will make the build look more complete in the end.
