They will be when I come to town.

Edit: For those of you with Zotac AMP! 580 cards, did you have to up the voltage a bit to get them stable at their factory clocks? My setup would crash on 3DMark/Unigine on stock voltage.

i got a question, i have galaxy 580 gtx, with the accelero xtreme plus,
now i get 900/1800 voltage 1138,
70c max, i'm abit scared since the voltage is high, is it safe for the card? it wont burn out? i'm having bad expriences with the 570 gtx which did.

at that voltage and those temps youre perfectly safe, nothing to worry about

In addition to my question what is a safe voltage/temp for 580s? Mine are watercooled by the way and hardly ever see pass 40c

It does seem like a slight bump in voltage is needed - especially with the 280 family of drivers. However, I'm using Afterburner to manage all of my clocks so currently the Zotac is underclocked to the EVGA stock clock of 772MHz. I'm most likely going to flash all the cards soon to the same EVGA BIOS to make things easier to manage.

EDIT: I found something interesting when I stopped syncing the clocks together in Afterburner.

The Zotac stock GPU clock is 815MHz but only uses 1.0V, whereas it takes 1.025V for my EVGA's to run at their stock clocks of 772MHz. Sadly, even though my Zotac may be a better chip, it has to play nice with the other two.

I'm posting to talk briefly about how room temps really can effect GPU temp.

I used to live in Phoenix where my house was smaller and I ran my air on 76F. The central air was blowing down onto my desk where my mid-tower rests on top of.

I idled a comfortable 39C-40C with 45% fan.

I recently moved to Mesa in a bigger home where I run my air on 77C and the central air is not close at all.

Now I idle 42C-43C. It's mostly pinned to 43C with more agressive fan settings per degree.
@ 58%.

That room temp just 1F higher and central not nearby with cool air blowing on it changed my temp 2C with higher fan settings adjustments.

As for full throttle - that dosen't pass 76C-77C and has not been effected. To keep the same full throttle temp my fan % was raised however in order to compensate.

Slight change in room temp and case ambient temps impact GPU temps more than one would think.

I know.....some of you are thinking it's only 2C but if I left the fan settings as previously set I'm sure my temp would be more like 4C higher for just a 1F room temp difference and placement of tower to central air blowing on desk.

i got a question, i overclocked my 580 gtx, and upped the voltage, now hm..
is it normal for the card under fully load to make some buzzing noise? and it's only under load, thanks

Your card or your power supply? -try card in other system(with other PSU!) and check again.

My card, but if i reset the clocks, i dont get the buzzing noise i noticed i get when i raise the card voltages.
edit: the noise is coming from the PSU underload, is something wrong with the psu?
