Still wanna know what's the max voltage you can go on a GTX 570 Power edition, would it be safe to max out the voltage slider?

Actually found this one on the local craigslist, thought I killed it benching full pot but after getting the stock cooler back on & testing I just killed the DVI, still working fine with VGA connected. Have to mod it up yet & go again, did as high as 1060c/1303m/2156s without any moding.

Reviews show lightning clocking better, but have to wait for some results to show up on the bot before I can see what it'll really do.

Don't trust Newegg. Their website keeps putting stuff on sale/deactivated from time to time.

Call RMA to find out. I am not RMA.

Beta drivers always have an expiration date.

Depends entirely on GPU.

Overclocking is all dependent on GPU. You guys should know this by now.

See my above two responses. But it's NOT safe to max out voltage sliders unless it was limited to a range that is within acceptable limits of the GPU in question.

Hello MSIalex, I have purchased two MSI Lightnings GTX 580's, the cards run great maxing out all of my games and runs Benches great. However on the CD's (one CD per card) that came with the cards there is suppose to be an Owners Manual but that folder is empty. The switches on the cards are labeled "Mem V-Switch", "GPU V-Switch", "PLL V-Switch", "OCP Unlocker", and "PWM Clocktuner". Also a BIOS switch for Dual Bios, The Manual will explain how to use these switches, I must say I'm not a novice and I know how to use some of the switches, yet to have that information confirmed and learn more about the operation of these switches while running SLI would be greatly appreciated. Here's a pic of my bad boys

I hope that Alex will be able to get you an owners manual (I'd love to give it a read as well ) but I can tell you that if I recall correctly alex has stated on here previously that the switches that are covered by the yellow film will void the warranty if that film is broken. Basically if that's correct then the only one you could use is the BIOS switch on the top, but you wouldn't want to use that one because the other BIOS is designed for benching with cooler than ambient cooling, so it really won't do anything productive for air or watercooling. Hope this helps and that you didn't already break the film.

EDIT: Here is Alex stating that breaking the seal of those switches voids the warranty.

GTX 560ti TFII comes 880mhz core and Hawk comes 950mhz core. Everything else identical.

One thing I couldn't find in specs is if the Hawk comes with 8+1 phase power is the TF II with 4+1 phase power? Can't seem to find specs?

That is incorrect.

The overclockability of a gpu in this case the GTX 580 is only determined by the chip to a certain extent, normally 60%.

The rest is strictly decided by power delivery efficiency and voltage tuning.
In other words , VRM´s , phases etc etc.

Since both the Matrix and Lightning are at least physically almost identical because both posess the same amount of phases , are able to individually tune PWM,core, RAM voltages etc etc this match is determined by the silicon lottery.

Still coolingwise the Lightning is in the front because the most heat radiating components are cooled individually and their heat is seperated therefor enabling the card to isolate the heat and prevent clustering.

This is not the case with the DCII cooler ...and that is why the card will get hot when stressed to much ...or clocked too high with high voltages.

Example:

DCII GTX 580

Idle:95 degrees
Load:110 degrees

04:40
