Have you killed a 570? (No recent deaths, buy some 570s!) - Page 47

So what do you guys think.. Should I go for broke with my new 570? Or stick to 1.1 v.
I would really like to be able to overvolt and overclock both of my cards without worry.
My first 570 took 1.2 like a champ during benching sessions.

Don't be scared. Why buy a card if you aren't going to do what you want with it. If it dies, then so be it.

this terrible card would be PPPPERFECT for CS but I forgot my password for my ancient steam account.

What other fps games run well on absolutely terrible cards? I'm talking low rez minimum graphics... just need something to kill time till RMA arrives

Wat card are you using in the meantime?
Fortunately my dad had a 5850 that he's letting me use until the RMA comes back, works pretty well. Only noticed a couple of times during online BFBC2 where it got crazy bogged down.

As for old school fps, I'm not so sure. I haven't played any fps for pc since cs 1.6 as this was my first desketop since I my '02 Dell college comp. I do know that you could play some Diablo (max res 800x600); not a fps but it's one of my all time favorite games. Good luck with the RMA......this is brutal!

I just found my Diablo 2 expansion =D gonna pop this bad boy in!

Yea Capwn feel free to push it, if it's a weak card it's better to know now rather than later. That's what warranties are for. Most died at around 1.1v give or take, use that as a guideline I suppose.

The grim Reaper is coming for your 570's

Especially considering you have two of them, if one dies it's not like you'll be deprived waiting on an RMA. I might sli too for this reason as well, alternate the dying card haha =P

I'm for sure gonna push 1.1v 24/7 once I recieve my RMA, In a sense I'm actually happy that mine died as it had a weird bug where it would artifact like CRAZY once a month but it went away if I shut down PC and turned it back on. Could of been a sign of it dying, it was intermittent for about 2 months. Happened 3 times in total, maybe 4. The overclock was rock solid too, never saw artfacts in crysis II, cod:black ops, cod: mw2, league of legends even tho the stress test I used leaves alot to be desired (evga OC scanner -_-') but it doesn't throttle the damn thing which is a plus.

(Chants) Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

What are the chances that both your cards would go down (knock on wood). Even if one did, you would still have the single 570 which as you well know is pretty saucy.

Yeah, I have D2 on my laptop, kind of thinking about popping it onto this rig. Problem is I have very little willpower when it comes to that game...but starting a new ladder character is so damn enticing

Well, I have been following this thread since I got my GTX 570, and to be honest, have always been nervous about abusing my card. I overclocked it anyway, I mean, I didn't buy it to NOT overclock. And I have a GTX 460, just in case of RMA. But anyway, been running a conservative 1.1V, mostly due to this thread. Kind of iffy about it being worth going any higher than that, just for an estimated 50Mhz core boost, so I think I'll just leave it. Just wanted to share that it's been at 1.1V and 900MHz core since I bought it, and haven't had any issues yet. Temps are good with the fan at a constant 85%. I don't really stress test anymore though, mostly out of lazyness. If I get crashes/hangs/artifacts in games, I tweak the clock settings. Bench testing is boring now, a chore, not like it used to be. Just wanted to throw this in here so people don't see this thread and think their 570 will ignite into a mass of burning PCB no matter how they treat their card. Knock on wood now though, with my luck, I'll be posting here later today or something about how my own 570 just decided to off itself.

Just want to share my dead 570 experience. I bought the Gigabyte GTX 570 OC Windforce 3x (GV-N570OC-13I) last friday. It comes factory overclocked @ 780 core/1560 shader/1900 memory. Default voltage is 1.00V. With these settings it worked fine under Furmak, Kombuster, Unigine and Far Cray 2 ( i never disabled OCP).

Then overclocked it to 850/1700/2250 keeping the voltage at default 1.00V and in less than 3 minutes during furmark run my card died (temps were 65-67 degrees. I didnt check the PCB since I will RMA it today. But im sure its a burnt VRM.

From the looks of it I am the only one whose card died at factory default voltage of 1.00 (with OCP on) despite having the Windforce 3x custom cooler. So I did quite alot of research and found out that (between custom 570s);

- Gigabyte 570 OC Windorce 3x and MSI 570 TwinFrozr II both use the reference PCB design with 6 phase VRM (4 for GPU and 2 for memory). They simply put a custom cooler on top. MSI cards have similar incidents reported
http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/sh....php?t=3072063

- Gainward 570 Phantom, Gainward 570 GS Goes Like Hell, Palit 570 Sonic Platinum all have 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory). Same amount with the GTX 580. All these cards have identical PCB since they belong to the same graphics card manufacturer group
http://images.bit-tech.net/content_i...phantom-1b.jpg

- Asus GTX570 DirectCU II also has 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory)
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/A...ages/front.jpg

And so far I havent seen similar incidents with any of these cards on the net. Which really brings me to the conclusion that this problem is only for the reference design 570 PCB with insufficient VRM phases. Based on the custom cooling abilites of my card, I am positive that temps have got nothing to do with this problem.

FYI, the GTX 590 has 10 GPU VRMs (5 per GPU) and already someone has blown one. Clearly 6 phase looks like the best solution since GTX 580 seems to working fine for everyone.

If I can get the RMA replacement, I will try to get a Gainward 570 Phantom instead and I will keep you posted on how it goes.

I'm thinking my card must have been part of a bad batch as people have suggested. A thread like this does seem to induce the fear that all the 570's are ready to go boom, but honestly, how many 570's are out there versus how many died at or below 1.1v with OCP on (I doubt the result is statistically significant relevant to other graphics cards); most deaths did not occur under those conditions, although I will cede that the limited power phases was a pretty poor design.

threads like this one make me scared. how to prevent this? i dont overclock, but my temps reach 70c at 75% fan speed. without that fan increase it would reach 85c or more easily.
