I would really like to be able to OC as much as possible on air (close to 900 would be nice). So my question is should I get a reference design at stock clocks or a pre-OCed one? I understand that overclocking potential can be a luck of the draw thing, but which in your experience tends to allow greater OC potential? Is there a lower voltage cap on the pre-OCed models?
Generally the pre-OC'd models are built with higher performing parts out of the same line. Generally called 'binning', the parts that handle the voltages or clocks better get put into the pre-OC'd versions and then one's that don't do as well are in the standard cards. EVGA is a particular manufacturer that I understand to do this. I would say if you want to run your card out of the box without changing anything, or want to really max the card, then the pre-OC is the way to go, otherwise chances are that a stock card will perform just as well, though it may also not. I'd say go with a stock card and save yourself the price premium, just go with a company like EVGA/XFX/Zotac that allows for overclocking under the warranty. I got a Zotac 570 the other day and I'm runnning 850/1700/2000 on a modest voltage bump.

Edit: What I meant about your intentions was that a pre-OC'd card will either run faster out of the box, or due to binning MAY have a slightly higher 'pushed to the limit and then given more voltage' top end. That said, for the price premium of 20-25 dollars, most stock cards will still OC to the same sweet-spot as the pre-done cards and run clock for clock at 24/7 settings, but may not have the same ceiling.

Does anybody know anything of the non reference Palit dual fan 570?!

Dual fan glory!

It uses 6 pin and 8 pin! MOAR POWAR!

Well, I got my OC up to 940. I'm stable for folding at 945 (but not 950), but BC2 gave me a black screen and wouldn't let me do anything so I reverted to 940 and have been good to go since. Loving my card!

I think it was discussed that EVGA no longer bins their cards. seeing as their modest 65mhz and 25mhz overclocks on the 570 and 580 respectively are EASILY attainable on any card. Now if they sold one at some kind of stupid overclock then I would say it was possible.

Another thing to take into consideration is that EVGA uses only reference designed cards with just a sticker placed on the shroud. Companies like Gigabyte and MSI who come out with non reference shrouds have a much easier time binning their cards with better components where EVGA seems to just sell stock Nvidia cards with updated BIOSes.

I could be wrong on all counts though.

Nice oc. Is this with 84 percent fan? Personally I have it at 67 % max as there is a border here where it goes from merely noticable to a wind tunnel type of sound. lol

Seeing these type of results, and seemingly having a 100% stable oc at 850 with more volts available makes me want to go for some more. Dont know if I want to with the stock cooler though.

Nope. 1.088mV is my Black Ops GTX 580´s default Voltage.

Subz3ero... thanks for your patience

but here is my 3dmark Vantage and little Update for score.

Intel i7-950 @ 4200MHz
Evga GTX 580 SC Black Ops @ 920MHz / 4400MHz air
http://3dmark.com/3dmv/2848082




Some weird thing after updating my 3dMark11. 3 runs, different GPU Clocks, and always a same result 6800.

How in the world is your max temp on that OC only 64 degrees on air?

From all the reviews, it looks like these thing hit at least 80 degrees when OCed that much.

I setup a custom fan profile in Afterburner. It goes like this: 0-50c = 50%, 60c = 80% and 75c = 100%. It has never gone up to 100% before though, the max temp I have ever seen was 66c. And the reason I went from 50% to 80% was because I cannot really hear the fan over my case fans up to like 82%.

I can't wait to WC my rig sometime this year hopefully, then I can push the voltage more on my card and go higher!

Ok, thanks. I'm almost putting cotton in my ears when its at 70% so I run quite a bit hotter (up to 81-83, which still is cooler than stock fan/clocks). I usually use closed headphones (Beyerdynamic DT-770) for gaming though, so I'm ok with that
