I didn't know the 570s had the issues too. Thought it was reference 580s and 590s that go boom boom. Especially that infamous youtube video and I think TPU's 590s went boom too?
And the funny thing, the GTX 590 youtube video claimed a voltage of 1.025v too
It was the 570 too. Don't remember the thread "have you killed a 570 lately? " Lol.
My first 580s (tri Zotac 3gb) got up to 965 with the stock bios. Never had a problem
. The 590s I had, never saw a whim of oc because I was very afraid of killing them.
Btw, my pm pop-up stopped working after the last site crash. I do have the setting checked.

The problem went away as soon as aftermarket guys made 570 custom PCB's like MSI & Asus....cuz u know, Military 3 components and Digi+ VRM's are oh so cool
Ppl stuck with the reference 570s just had to watch their clocks and voltage. This was probably the nail in the coffin for over volting. Nvidia then locked the voltage and gave us boost. Didn't they announce that they were doing this to reduce rma(s) Edited by wermad - 6/8/13 at 11:09pm
