Figured some people would want to know this.

About an hour ago, for the first time, I heard coil-whine on my MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk and it's been continuous until I lowered the GPU load, which in turn lowers the head and speed the fan needs to operate at.

I should point out this is the first time I've seen my GPU go above 80% and coincidentally I hear coil-whine for the first time. It was closer to 86-89% GPU load during the whine also. As I type this the fan speed went down to 75% and there's no coil whine.


It's not an issue since I use enormous "covers-half-your-head-headphones" aka studio headphones.

Keep your 1366 and oc to 4.2-4.4. I went from a 950 to a SB and I think the SB platform still has a while to mature. Especially with triple cards, keep the x58 platform

Any of you guys with 560Ti Palit/Gainward Sonic/Golden Sample editions happen to have taken any pics of the heatsink itself?

I'm wondering who makes these particular heatsinks for Palit/Gainward, as the fitment of them are the same as the 460's with Dual DVI.
These cards are a royal pain to get coolers for, so wondering if someone might help.

EDIT: Nevermind, just found it on Neoseeker. Wonder who makes it...

Meh.

Thanks anyway.

I've had a few 500 series cards so I thought it's about time I joined.

First one was a Gainward GTX 570 that I got second hand dirt cheap. Unfortunately it was a terrible overclocker. Couldn't even get above 880mhz on the core . Sold for a profit and got a 570 TFIII. 1000mhz on the core . It was awesome. Unfortunately for this card it had to be sold to fund another project.

Recently bought an MSI GTX 580 TFII (£50 extra for the lightning is rediculous if you ask me) in the hope it would have similar potential to my previous Twin Frozr. However it did not. Barely managed 920mhz on the core. Sold for only a £10 loss and today recieved my new EVGA 580 that I am totally happy with. Hopefully will be able to squeeze a little more out of it.

EDIT: Vantage GPU score is: 30581

I know its not in the screen shot but it can be seen on the 3Dmark website if there is any doubt.

I'm hoping to pick up some EVGA GTX 580's quite shortly hopefully within this week or by August. However before I pick these Video Cards up and run SLI with a Pair of Stock Clocked (015-P3-1580-AR) I'm wondering as to what Issues and Known Bugs the GTX 500 Series have. I've been reading alot that there are issues with the Card artifacting and that Reseating/Cold-Booting is necessary when it occurs.

http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?&m=811877&mpage=1

I'm just wondering if GTX 580 Owners can contribute and state whether they have experienced such issues or if they know of anyone who has. I'm trying to determine whether it is the SC and higher-OC Models that have the issue or whether it affects all Models of the 580.

45nm, when the 500 series cards came out in November, it seemed that there were some issues with the vrms failing easily (especially when overclocked). However, everything is good now so no worries good luck with your purchase and make sure you join the club

The Lightnings are well worth 50 over the Twin Frozr II cards, they have higher quality components on them. There's a reason the Lightnings are breaking world records and aren't in stock anywhere.

I'm just wondering if GTX 580 Owners can contribute and state whether they have experienced such issues or if they know of anyone who has. I'm trying to determine whether it is the SC and higher-OC Models that have the issue or whether it affects all Models of the 580.
I'm the person (going by another name) who started the spread sheet on that EVGA site in hopes to find out if there was any common denominator with those cards.

Turns out it wasn't just EVGA cards as other vendors cards were coming over to the EVGA website for answers. That's how good the forum support on EVGA is where other owners from other vendors come there.

Anyway, turns out not just SC but all versions. It also turns out no common denominator except it's only happening to those systems left on 24/7 without shutting down. It can happens after a 30 day mark or more each card varies that experience it and a simple cold boot shut down restart fixes any of the artifacting. It then sort of resets itself and dosen't happen again until after that same amount of time that it took to happen in the first place.

It had nothing to do with weak VRM's, GPU temps, or over clocking as the card is very overclockable and cards do not fry or burn out. Also the cards have six power phases not four like the 570's.

It also is / was happening to a very small amount of people and majority of everyone is fine. The list got to about 36 thus far since release. If you shut down your system every now and again it's a non issue. I've owned my card since January 15th and have not had any problems. My computer goes to 'sleep' mode or shut down every night.

In fact I hit a nice over clock at 923Mhz Core on air for a stable run at 3D Mark11. See the 580 Overclockers Club thread in my sig and you'll see obviously they are great cards except for this minor bug that forces a cold reboot. Also none of the members are having this issue on the club or even this thread.

Other possibilites that have been floating around but nothing yet confirmed.

Hope that answers your questions and puts any concerns to rest for you.
