GTX 570 dead - Page 8

post #71 of 81
Thread Starter 
CONCLUSION: buy EVGA 570s. not GIGABYTE. not saying it wasn't my fault, but it is definitely true that EVGA 570s are showing MUCH better overclocking results, without even 1.1v.

EDIT: also don't raise the memory clocks above 2200MHz for 570s.

and in case I am wrong and this actually is completely my fault, stay away from raising your max volts until you see definitive overclocking results from someone else who did it.

I've posted this before in other threads, but I managed to kill my Asus GTX 570 too. I was running 1.2v (on air), because basically I had read a review of the Asus GTX 570 and that's how they overclocked it.

The card died after about 30 minutes after changing the voltage, whilst I was running 3d Mark 11. The card was running cool as well (changed the fan profile), so it must've been the VRMs.

I've got a replacement card since and run it at 840/1680/1950 @ 1.025v, which seems a safe, respectable overclock for the voltage.

The conclusion is to take small steps instead of going the whole hog, while overclocking. lachen.gif

Not exactly. All Fermi chips vary (stock voltage aka vid for example) and that affects how well they overclock. Brand doesn't matter, you just hope you get a good chip. Only high end binned chips may be decent (think Gigabyte SOC/ASUS directCU). Also, your theory on "x voltage should be fine, temps were 76*c" or whatever is wrong because temperature isn't the only thing that harms the chips. They have a certain tolerance of voltage (both the gpu and other components) and going over that starts to degrade and harm. Especially if you're foolish enough to stress it for 16 hours at insane voltages on stock cooling. So long as they accept your RMA and replace it you should be happy but next time be cautious, because in most cases they can tell if it's been damaged through overclock and i think NVIDIA told partners not to accept RMAs where cards were damaged by overvolting (there is a sticker on my card which says that).

I took small steps and went very slowly. I saw many other people use 1.188v and their cards were fine. I was inexperienced/unlucky. wink.gif

Nobody stresses for 16 hours. Most people give that kind of voltage just to benchmark, not run 24/7. Better luck next time.
