ok....so let me ask you this
at what point do i know when to up the voltage?...
is it a trail by error thing?...

Switch the bottom to the top, and top to bottom and see if that changes anything or which runs cooler on top. They'll probably run at the same temps.

Over clocking does increase GPU temps and with SLI the top card always runs hotter than the bottom. Adding more voltage also brings it even further in temps.

Do you have the fan settings to manual or auto? I use a aggressive manual fan settings for myself with a six point scale 'curve' instead of the 'steps' on the graph.

40C - 51%
50C - 62%
60C - 73%
70C - 84%
80C - 95%
90C - 100%

My GTX 580 idles around 39-41C and max temps gaming full throttle or heavy benching dosen't go past 79C-80C with my one card.

P.S. I once posted a lower setting graph (degree to point 40C-40%, 50C-50% etc) to somone who said my scale wasn't aggressive at all as he keeps his at 100% all the time.

I asked him dosen't that burn out your fan much sooner than it's life expectancy? His reply : I've been doing this for years with no problems, besides it's an EVGA with lifetime warranty, why should I care?

After that response I went up on fan % on the grid for each 10C as posted above.
Are you using stock cooling? Ambient temps? Mine seem a little high; I'm wonderung if the aggressive
Cooling curve would help me out?

That's where you need to be very careful and should do a lot more homework. Too much voltage will fry your VRM. Permanent damage or bring on artifacting in games.

For now run your highest clocks without over voltage until it's unstable and then back down on the OC till it's stable again. You should be getting 10-13% OC which is a nice 24/7 bump in performance really.

Then after you got your homework done and get some ideas you can take it the next step.

Might want to read this thread about over volting to get an idea what was going on in the early days of the 570's debut. It's happening less and less and further in between and mostly in part due to knowing before you OC the voltage for card owners.

Don't want to scare you just a heads up caution sign. Have you killed a 570? (No recent deaths, buy some 570s!)

Hope this helps. Plus give it a day while other 570 series owners read your post and lend some info to you.

Mine is the temps read by Precision and / or GPU-Z, so it's not ambient temps from inside the case. The VRM itself.

I use stock EVGA cooling, it's got the vapor chamber cooling unit inside the shroud bascially pushing out the hot air exhaust out the rear air flow bracket. Standard reference design. I put on the high air flow bracket on mine which some newer cards come with now. I also put a nice back plate for cosmetics in my case and protection. Pretty nice set up.

No problem. Hey when you get a chance. Look at the first page of the 500 Series Owners Club here and check out how members submitted their proof. There a few ways to show your card and OCN name for a validation of ownership and join our club.

Subz3ro (our fearless leader) gets around to updating everyone about once a week when he gets down time from his busy home schedule.

See you around.

My sc came with the high flow bracket. I was just askung what your ambient temps were where you operate the pc. I'm wondering if that fan profile will help me, as at about 80% gpu usage @1.000V stock oc clock, my fan speed sits in the mid 60% range and my temps can reach the mid 80s (playing trine). Now that I think about it, though, running crysis with my sig oc for about 2 hours didn't get above 87C, but I think the fan speed bumpe up to the low 80% range.

At the moment until I move in a couple weeks, I've got it on top of my desk and a central air unit blowing down on it which I keep at 76F inside the house all year long. My new home I'm not sure if air unit will be blowing down on it but I will most likely still be at 76F-77F house temps. Never did take a inside tower reading.

My Cooolermaster 912 HAF has a great air ventilation with mesh front of tower and I removed the middle HDD cage so the front 200mm fan inside blows easily onto the components. Wire management is also neatly tucked in back of tower so it's not cluttered or blocking anything.

See my public profile for pics also in album. I think you fine and I can still understand why you might like lower temps. It does make a difference in over clocking but not every day useage.

One little thing that did happen to me, and I've yet to confirm it. I had my voltage lowered from default to 1.0500v and when I'd boot up my system it wouldn't post. Also when I'd wake it from sleep mode it wouldn't display or wake up the monitor. When I brought reset the default voltage back to 1.0880v everything is just fine. At least for now. In time I can tell you if under volting the GPU was the issue. Anyway didn't change my temps as I'm still running same idle and full throttle temps.

Good night, see you around.

Wow, they are looking at your water blocks trying to figure out what the heck it is. Sorry to hear it's being held up in customs. Going to be awesome once their under water.
