Gtx 580 ocing!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey oc'ers my mobo wont do SLI 470's for somwe reason so I was thinking about returning my 470 and getting a 580... I was wondering how good the 580's oc? bcuz I see that the 570 almost matches the 580 when it oc's. and does the asus 3 slot 580 do exceptionally well at ocing? or should I just stick to the best price or evga card?

are you enabling sli?

what i think and how it usually goes when you SLI using afterburner you clock one card and it supposidly i suppose clocks the other to match.

i've tried both ways where i would clock one card and clock the other and then enable SLI

i would try other roads before moving onto another card when a 470 is still a good card. 580's are cooler and use less power but only make the jump if you really need to

Going from SLI 470s to a single 580 would be a fairly significant downgrade. Why not troubleshoot/replace the mobo instead?

I'd defintely take one 580 over 2 470s any effing day!
MUCH less noise, MUCH less heat, MUCH less power consumption, No hassels about SLI profile for games, or microstuttering issues.

I'd say get a 580 an OC it to 900 an ur set for a good long while.

lol you can OC higher then that(1000+), especially with a better bio which i have

OP
id figure out what your doing wrong or if the mobo is messed, cuz if you already have 2 470s why waste money on a 580 when the 470s sli are better
