MSI twin frozr ii gtx 570 help needed

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I use MSI Afterburner and my voltage is locked (i.e: 1000, 1013, 1025, etc) i cannot up or down it by .1 increments. Is there a way to fix this? I want to OC my gpu to at least 850 but i would be doing 1038 . is that a good voltage to keep it at?

Oh, now I can ask a question that I was going to ask about 1 minute ago (at the same time as asking about Windows 7):  which power supply do you have now, and which one are you going to be getting?

I have some generic POS 600watt PSU. Bad reviewsi have read. So i ordered a Corsair 850w Broze from amazon. This is for future 570 sli for a couple years until an upgrade. I read the reviews on the corsair and it seems pretty good. Can't wait. im having some wierd sounds coming from my PSU at this moment. lasts liek 1 second but happens every 5-10 min.

Is it safe to assume that you will hold off on all overclocking until you get the new PSU?

 

(by the way, a quality-made 650W power supply would have been more than enough for the SLI 570 setup plus room for future upgrades due to each new generation requiring less power than the previous)

I do have my stuff overclocked but at a safe level. Im not going overboard. cpu is at 4.2 and gpu is at 820. i have friggin 8 fans in my tower.

2 (blue led) (260mm) on the left side
2 (blue led) (130mm) in the front where my hard drive slots are.
2 (blue led) (i think 120mm) on top
1 (maybe 130) pushpull iquid cooling fan for CPU
1 95mm where the rear* of the CPU is located

im also going to order a RAM cooler ( i have ddr3 1600 kingston 4gb (4x)
and im also going to be added another two fans on the bottom as i have two extra empty fan slots.

im also gonna buy a soundblaster or better sound card in the future. i have 5 external portable hard drives connected through usb 3.0

my cellphone is always plugged in for recharge in the front multireader usb. i have a thermal touch fan control
blu ray burner reader and sony cd dvd rw combo. Im thinking of adding another basic hard drive for VIDEOS only. that way i can store my tv shows and movies on 1 drive.

oh, and i dont pay for power. its free

There is no safe overclock with a low-quality PSU.  Ever.

 

I am sorry, but I just don't want to see you lose anything before you get the new PSU.

cant believe i got a POS PSU from cyberpower. got a great deal on the whole thing. went to new egg and amazon and compared prices building it myself but i got it tax free and free shipping. i saved about 500 bucks. cept the whole PSU. i should have it by today. its holding up fine. my psu is a 600watt sli ready no brand name. anyway, this is off topic. LOL trying to find out how to change voltage settings
post #8 of 20

I know this got off topic, but it's important.  PSU failures of low-quality units can happen at any time, and the risk goes way up when stuff is overclocked.  Worse than that, anything that's connected to the PSU during the failure could get killed.

 

Anyway, I apologize for doing that.  I also apologize again because I don't know how to change the voltage.

Voltage on Fermi is stepped. My MSI 570 is the same way. .975, .988, 1, 1.013, etc. That is just the way it is. That voltage seems way high for that OC though. I'm running a 570/OC model that came clocked at 792 from the factory and I'm pushing 850 on .975 volts, which is the stock voltage with the current bios. Can hit 900mhz with voltage at .988. I am watercooled though.

how? If i set mine to 850mhz with 1013, i crash...i go lower i crash, i go 1025 i crash, 1032 or whatever the next levl is, im stable but man 1035 for 850?!?!? while your running it on .975?!?!? i have cpu liquid cooled. i have powerful fans (8) in my full tower, so temp is not a problem.. its just why does mine require such a higher VOLT?!
