Why are GTX 570s dying from overclocking? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
570=480 in most terms. if you want to play it safe get a water blocks for them and cool them , Other then that dont turn off over current protection. i seen a few cases of the dieing @ overclocks with that off.
No way to be sure. but to each its own. I would recommend water cool the cards in 800d , 800d not best for air cooling.

You'll be very happy with your 570. It's actually really quiet too.

I came from a 6870 prior to giving up on it because it was so damn loud. I never thought there would be a day when something could be louder than an Nvidia card, at least based on how bad the 470 and 480 were.

This 570 is a charm to listen to. Especially with the high airflow bracket.

When you get them make sure that you set up your Afterburner profile to 1 fan speed % per 1*c. Like so; 65*c = 65%. Using that method with a 850mhz overclock I see MAYBE 66*c in Metro. Keep in mind my basement is only about 17*c.

You wont kill it. As long as you don't overvolt too far. I mean the Guy whose 570 fried was because he turned off the throttle thing and was pumping Max volts.

It's not an option easily accessible. From what I saw on the internets you have to disable it using GPU-z using a command.

I know that after seeing so many cards asploded that I don't want to risk my baby.

Turning OCP off increases wattage that flows through the VRMs which in turn like to asplode.

Also people with high memory overclocks have problems turning their 350$ video cards into paperweights. And by high I mean 2300mhz.

I've got my 570 stable at 850/1700/2000 @ 1.063v and it runs beautifully. I can't seem to get 900 stable but I'm over it. 850 is more than enough for even the most demanding games (AHEM Metro 2033 I'm looking at you).

what is the one major difference that makes the 580 superior to the 570? not that theyre far apart in power. Cause CC/VRAM can be equal on the 570 as the 580 but what else? The CUDA cores? cause the 570 has 480 cores while the 580 has 512 if im not mistaken...is that it?

Clock for clock i think they are dead even, most benchies ive seen the 570 lead by a fps or 2, only cuz the 570 was at 732 core instead of the 480's 700 core

xxbassplayerxx had his card cooled to -40C when the explosion occured, and that included the VRMs. So don't say that it's okay for you to turn OCP off with just water cooling. It's not the VRM temps that make it explode, it's the current itself and the shoddiness of the VRM design.

Quote:
Core Voltage: 1.212V (1.223 with DMM)
Clocks: 1100/1200
OCP/Power limit disabled: Yes, via BIOS.
Load Temperature: -40C
VRM Cooling: Stock unisink / cold from phase / fan
What you were doing: Running Vantage Performance
I mean yeah those are some ridiculous settings but take a look at his load temps. Lol.

More CUDA cores. Higher stock clock (lol, had to point out the obvious). Better VRM design. Higher memory bus bandwidth. More VRAM. More heat (good for me in my cold basement :brrr.

That's about it really.

Dont those new ASUS Direct copper cards have the limiter disabled? If so I wonder if they beefed up the VRM

edit: Found this on Guru3d about the Direct CU 580

"The card triple slot (!) card uses a custom PCB with massive VRM (eight phases for GPU) implementation. it draws that power directly from the 8-pin PEG headers and not the PCIe slot.

The power circuit is also completely localized, meaning that it draws absolutely zero power from the PCI-Express slot. The VRM makes use of high-grade components, including an NEC-made proadlizer to condition power for the GPU. The rear panel has two DVI connectors one DisplayPort and HDMI."
