I am encountering problems with my 560Hawk. Seems I can't find anything stable aside from stock clocks/voltages.

Even tried changing between 275.33 and 280.26 drivers...
When I test my OC, I use the following:
1. Unigine 2.5 Heaven Extreme Tess 1920x1080 noAA 15mins
2. Kombustor 1920x1080 noAA 15mins
3. Crysis - Gamer 1920x1080 4 Loops
4. 3DMark11 Free - Performance

No artifacts or driver errors during tests. But there comes a time in crysis gameplay that screen turns BLACK, but sound is still OK.

There are times it crashes.

So the question is what's the stability test program should I focus on? Settings and how long I should run it? Cause I don't have the time to test all my OC in my games.

Add me please. I just got an ASUS GTX 570 Direct CU II Saturday. I was ready to click on a different brand when I noticed they were back in stock on Newegg. I haven't had time to OC and test it much with mid-terms going on this week but I'm working on it. Up to 780 right now. Gonna see how close to 900 I can get.

I have not yet once gotten 950 stable, but you should be able to push your memory much further as I mentioned with my 560 Ti in the post above. Mine is a cheapy reference model by Sparkle, and I have just passed 40 minutes of heaven benchmark at 900 core 2500 memory, which yielded me 22.47% more points in the benchmark at 1920x1200 default settings with 2X MSAA. I went from 832 to 1019 points. Also, I did not ever get any stability improvements from voltage increase until 1.1 volts. Anything less did nothing. How much extra juice are you giving it? 1.1 is safe from what I have read and you can go up to 1.5 safely. Another user with a 580 says he is usin 1.225 for his OC!

More volts? Also, I have noticed that the people with 1000mhz cores have rather low memory overclocks, so consider going to stock memory speed first.

And to top this all off, use unigine for 30-40 mins then demanding games, aparently kombustor or fur mark and etc just load ur GPU but it doesnt test what matters.

Well, i think Crysis Warhead 1920x1080 DX10 no AA, VSync OFF, Gamer, Full Screen, is a good stability test.
I am running a total of 15 Loops. 3 Loop per Level.
I have not touched my mem clock yet.
I increase my Clock every 10Mhz.
I check the min and max frames after the 15 runs.
And I have observed that usually, min frames get lower when I overclock beyond 960. However, when I undervolt it at 970, it gets better. Any ideas why this is happening?

I sold off my Lightning and only have a single MSI Twin Frozr II 580 now. Here's a screenshot of the clocks and such.

A GTX 570 over clocked @890/1780/1900 = a GTX 580 at stock.

You should be able to match that OC. 3DMark11 score should be just shy of6200.

My stock EVGA GTX 580 @797/1031/1594 raw graphic 3DMark11 score 6187.

Good luck bud =)

What made you sell the Lightning and not the TFII, or even more puzzling, why sell either?

Didn't need a second card. None of the games I play required that much video card power, but I didn't think of that till after I had bought both cards. I sold the Lightning because I was able to sell it for just shy of the amount I had bought it for, I would have taken a larger loss with the Twin Frozr II. I'm sure I won't get as high of an OC on the Twin Frozr II (stuck at 950MHz core atm), but I wanted to save some cash.
