Have you killed a 570? (No recent deaths, buy some 570s!) - Page 106  

post #1051 of 1259
I thought I burned one last night, for some reason the fan profile didn't work on afterburner, or turned off with the screensaver or something. Anyway, came back after BOINC kicked on, was running EVGA OC scanner for the first time.

Top card was at 94*, and it said the driver stopped responding. I restarted and no video output, so I plugged into the bottom one. Windows/afterburner only showed one 570. I restarted a few min later and it was back. I dunno, seems to bench/run fine. no artifacts or anything, maybe the thermal protection kicked in?

I was JUST about to put a 570 in my shopping cart and hit Place Order. But after reading this thread.... I'm not so sure now I wanted a 570 because a 580 is too expensive for what I need a video card to do (cuda). Now I'm thinking I should just maybe wait for a while and let the prices drop or go with another nvidia card sometime in the future.

Not all GTX 570s have the design flaw, and most of the ones broken seem to be from the first batch of cards. Also, the chance of your GTX dying is very improbable provided that you take good care of it. And even if it breaks, you can RMA it for a few dollars and get a new one within two weeks.

In return for the very small chance that it might break, you get the second most powerful single GPU in the market, capable of surpassing stock GTX 580 performance when overclocked.

Just keep temperatures cool, voltages less than 1.1V and the chance of your card dying will be very very minimal.

Besides, speaking as a GTX 570 owner, I can tell you the cards are well worth it (and I even had one of the two cards die on me).

I agree, not all are bad, heck I had a hiccup and let one card hit 94*, and it's still kicking. I don't regret it at all.

Definately don't make this mistake. This card is awesome. It's cool, quiet, and faster than the much more expensive 580. EVGA has excellent customer service and a great 3-year warranty. This card overclocks extremely well, past the stock 580 speeds, and always stays below 79C for me. I was running at 950/1900/2270 @ 1.1v for a while but saw some blue polygons every now and then, only in Crysis, but its one of the games I play most often so I went down to 920/1840/2200 @ 1.063 and its been completely perfect for over a month now. Cool, quiet, and faster than a $700 card. Something happens down the line, I'll just get it replaced by EVGA. Do yourself a big favor and get it. There's many more cards like mine than the bad ones. It just seems the other way around because when someone has a bad card they make it very known out of frustration.

I've been reading this thread since day one. Never posting but I too have this question finally as I'm seeing less and less incidents.

Seems like it's less and less that the 570's are being killed. Mostly likely due to either knowledge and information of owners before purchasing, and possibly those purchasing are buying more non-reference rather than reference now.

Another question I have, is the newer reference cards VRM issue been corrected? Anyone know if the present reference 570's coming out have had any corrections/improvements by Nvidia or third party vendors? I'd imagine if it was niether Nvidia or vendors would admit to it.

This looks like 6 phases instead of 4 on the reference 570 does it not? IIRC the two phases closest to the PCI-E connector were removed on the reference design?
Can anyone confirm this? I'd also like to know...my curiosity is sparked

No way a GTX 570 is faster than 580 . An overclocked GTX 580 (at lower overclocks) will DESTROY GTX 570 (at higher overclocks) . add to than the 1280 vs. 1536 vram, 512 SP vs. 480 SP & 384-bit vs. 320-bit.
The GTX 580 is a much more reliable card than the reference GTX 570.
Don't underestimate a 580. it is currently Nvidias Top Single GPU solution.

Except the fact that it is quite a bit more expensive for what you get.

Yeah I just meant STOCK 580 speeds. It can easily surpass STOCK 580 speeds. For half the price. Obviously the 580 is way better if you have a much larger bank account than I do. For those looking at the performance-to-cost ratio though, the 570 can't be argued with.
