I got my little torx set for 6 bucks at HomeDepot and used it last night. Will probably be the only time it gets used unless I get another 570 and get another backplate. Lol.

You got 900 stable at only 1.05?

That's amazing!

As for your question nearly any form of overclocking a chip decreases lifespan. But to what degree? It's hard to tell. Most enthusiasts end up changing their hardware long before it dies from a stable overclock.

It really all depends on how long you plan on having the card.

Yes 900 / 2000 stable @ 1.05 volts, I got a good card it seems. I hope my i5 2500k clocks well when it arrives.

I had an ATi card similar to the blue one you have there. That thing was a hunk of crap. Going from the 3450 which I ran for a week to a 6870 was a huge leap in performance, I can't imagine what it's like going to a 570.

Also what's new for beta 6?
