GTX 570 - Questions

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello, I may be picking up a GTX 570 tomorrow but i have afew more questions.

- Is this Card basically a better version of a GTX480?
- How noisy is the cooler Idle/Load? (reference)
- How high do temperatures get? (reference)
- How high will it overclock on stock voltage? (can it hit 800 core?)

And a pretty big one,

Is it safe to Actually Overclock this thing with voltage? Why are soo many dying? Is it a problem with the cards??

- Not as far as I know. Check this thread.
- For noise, check this.
- For temperatures, check this.
- Doubt it, check this. (I take that back then, OCC just sucks, or got unlucky)

As long as you don't unlock the power limiter, you're fine. And don't go above 1.1v I'd say.
Only 6 killed cards out of what.. hundreds?

All 4 questions can be answered from reading a few of these reviews.
http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...ws-thread.html

Noise and temperatures can be checked easily.

As for overclocking potential based on stock voltage, I did a quick survey from these review sites that has done overclocking testing.
Stock = 732MHz and all use stock voltage.

I find:-
guru3d: from 732 to 800~825
hexus: from 732 to 840
neoseeker: from 732 to 807
overclock3d: from 732 to 800
techpowerup: from 732 to 822
hardwarecanucks: from 732 to 861
legitreviews: from 732 to 825
Average = 822 MHz

These 2 models have factory pre-overclocking. But 'stock' voltage is used.
hardwareheaven: from factory oc'ed 800 to 863
techpowerup: from factory oc'ed 800 to 860

Conclusion: it is fairly safe to expect an overclocking of (at least) 800MHz with stock voltage with a reference card.

No, each has specific advantages but the performance is really neck and neck overlocked or at stock.

Quote:
- How high do temperatures get? (reference)
~70-80 degrees in game if you don't set up a custom fan profile.

800 would be a realistic expectation, depending how what your definition of stability is (game stable or OCCT stable).

As long as you are not turning off OCP and/or using more than 1.2V it should be okay.

lol, please dont comment before you have one.

most 570 can hit 880 to 920 mhz within the 1.1v volt limit of the msi afterburner.

and loading temp on the stock card tops 70 degree unless you have really bad airflow in your case.

Please don't comment before you've read the thread.

He was asking about OC on stock voltages. I'd like to see you hit 900 mhz on stock voltages.

Please read the question the OP posted, he said STOCK clocks, so unless his card is 1.1V VID (I would hope that he doesn't get such a poor VID card) and can somehow add 150 mhz with no increase in voltage I would say my assumption is quite correct.

As for temperatures, Anandtech got a load temp of 82 in Crysis in what I assume to be an open test bench. HardOCP had a stressed load temp of 85 degrees, they don't specify what benchmark but for comparison their 480 had a load temp of 95 in the same test. Testing would seem to suggest the 5xx are about 10 degrees cooler than the GF100 chips with the caveat being that a lot of the testing done on the GTX480s and GTX470s was with an engineering bios that did not ramp up the fan speed until 90 degrees or more.

And if you really want to get in with it, a 570 is not OCCT nor is it Furmark stable until you turn off OCP because the card will automatically downclock and upon turning off OCP you run into a plethora of other issues when you crank up the voltage.

With this said, the 570 is still an extremely strong card and I would not dissuade anyone from making the purchase, it hits the mark on both raw performance terms as well as being justifiable for most enthusiasts from a frame/dollar perspective. But you cannot neglect the fact that GF110 is not a new architecture and its key benefits are FP-16 processing (which isn't utilized much in games), better usage of transistors (which reduces temps and power consumption, and perhaps allows for higher overclocks), and finally better stock coolers.

Yay!! i got my GTX 570 today

Okay so its VID is .962 is that good or bad? can i still hit 800 core with that? will 1.00v be safe for 24/7 use?

That a good voltage, but a good stock VID does not necessarily dictate good overclock-ability. To answer your second question, you will never know unless you try.

And finally, My GTX 570 has a stock of 1.038 (its voltage is factory overclocked) so yes 1.00 is definitely safe. Users here report that 1.1V and below is safe for this card. I can get to 920 core @ 1.1V so it shows that a card with high stock VID can still overclock well.

Nice

Yeah, mine is 100% stable at 800! Only 1 problem. It runs hot. I blame this on my tiny Antec 300. Just managed to fit this thing in it lol. Idles at around 40c load at 80c. pretty crappy temps but not dangerous i hope.
