Is the GTX 580 made with solid state capacitors? HI-C? Chokers? Reading on some GPU's that go the extra mile in build wondering if it was reference or only non-reference cards?

Last question as a new owner is the display on the GTX 580 run at 1080p x 60Mhz as the AMD 6870 was running my monitor before replacing it?

Yes, everything should be the same as before except for the drivers obviously. I too came from a 6870, it was a good card, but it just wasn't doing it for me.


Also Mongoloid it looks like you put way too much paste on there. Lol. Leave it up to EK to be masters at watercooling yet fail at giving instructions as to applying the most important part of a water block setup.

But I would still think that it will work. Just try to use a bit less on the other two. I wouldn't suggest pea size since thats a big a5s die but I usually apply in the center and let it spread itself.

I don't know what the hell they were thinking when they added that to their instructions.

The huge gpu die on the 570, and 580s need more paste than usual.

just started tinkering with overclocking my 570, I have it at 850/1700/2000 @ 1.063 volts idles at 29c and ingame 41-47c(

Metro 2033 gameplay definitely improved I get a average of 48fps with everything maxed out, only problem is I'm noticed random artifacts like 'spiking' textures here and there is that due to too high of a O/C? I thought this was a pretty moderate overclock for this card.

From what I've seen many people are maxing out at about 850/1700/2000. Though you have few that can go above that.

Well, the amount of stock TIM on it made me go ???, and now I'm getting it's ok, since the gpu die is massive and if you touch it, you can feel the raised lettering on the die itself.

lol...it only looks like a thick amount, it really isn't...regardless, I have to go buy more tim.
post #717 of 5998
I use the credit card method of spreading TIM on GPU's, especially on the huge Nvidia's.

Hey guys, is it just me or does the GTX 570 not idle properly?
It's my first time using an nVidia card since a 9800 GTX and that was 3 years ago, and I've never used MSI afterburner.

I would notice a spike increase of temps to 50c at times, and core clock, shader clock and memory clock would be at their max, but GPU usage would be around 0-1%.
This is strange, and is this normal?
I'm using 263.09.



Also, would a Phenom XII 550 BE (3 cores) 3.1ghz bottleneck my card?
Bad Company 2 performance isn't as great as I thought it would be (I get like 30-40 fps in Atacama Desert) and this is at max settings 1920x1080, 4xAA and 16x AF no HBAO and no Vsync.
Even lowering resolutions or changing video options doesn't net me a significant performance boost.
In Vietnam it runs pretty great, 50+ fps most of the time.
I really think it's because of my CPU, and BC2 was meant for Quad Cores.
Every other game runs amazing so I can't complain.

Just seems like Aero. What were you doing then? As for BC2, I'm 90% sure it's your processor bottlenecking. This card should max it no problem.
post #720 of 5998
When I OC my 570, I get a very high pitched ringing sound from the card. Even the smallest OC causes this. Am I cursed to forever have to run stock?
