Congrats. That's an awesome card and in my opinion one of the top 570 cards you could have purchased.

Post back once you get it and join the club buddy.

Especially if you plan on folding at all on the new card/cards. You'd see a considerable increase in overall folding performance with it. I hope that you get everything worked out and that you get all of your problems fixed. I wouldn't wish these type of computer problems on my worst enemy.... Well maybe... Ok no, I'm not that cruel.

Thanks, I'll be running a full battery of tests this weekend. But I sure do miss nvidia drivers. For example, officially 3dmarks11 supports amd drivers 11.1 while nvidia is upto 275.xx, the amd is from January. Though, I do get more points using the current (not newest/beta) drivers. I had a lot of driver issues with my old 48xx series cards and I thought amd/ati was now better. Imho, that is still not the case.

Lol, I'm tempted, but I want full cover water blocks for the cards I'm eying and I have yet to get a response from EVGA or EK. I'll report back what they say about the 570 2.5gb

Im good. After reading owner's account of the 570 2.5gb, I'll pass. The 3gb is just expensive and I still want to retain a triple card setup. I'll pass on the 3gb as I was able to get my current setup to finally work properly. I'll keep on eye on evga's b-stock for more price drops on the 3gb.

I'd also like for any 570 owners or previous owners in the club to please respond to Kaliburr36 with some clocks that worked for you without over voltage first. So he can get an idea on over clocking safely before hitting the voltage bump.

Please post some of your experiences and let's give him some 500 Series Owners Club assistance. Thanks in advance, I know you guys are going to pull through for him.

I owned three 470s. Best way to approach oc'ing your gpu(s) is taking baby steps.
-First note or write down your clocks and voltage both stock and stable settings.
-Second, take baby steps, usually a 10 to 20 notches along with ram and voltage.
-Run stability for each clock (be careful with furmark), if you pass, record your step and move on to the next push.

I like to push the stock voltage first to see how far I can get without adding more voltage. Then, when I do need more, I keep chipping away until that voltage level is not enough.

I'm sure some 570 owners will come around shortly to give you some hard numbers to start with. Have fun and take it slow. Good luck
