I will say that you are pretty far up there and should lower the OC a bit. Throttle means that the card is lowering its clock speed since it detects it is being stress tested. So lower temps and the appearance of stability.
Well I was also testing it out in Black Ops and such and I see no artifacting and I'm not having any problems as of just yet.

How do I know when I should stop? I thought artifacting would be the only sign? Also, how do I know/check the voltage just to make sure nothing is happening there?

I mean I am on water. But even in Black Ops I'm sub 50s?

as far as I know artifacting or game crashes or something else very obvious are the only ways to tell if the overclock is unstable. Sorry but I cant really help much more than this. You should try running a benchmark to see how that works if you can.

try using occt gpu test, i always test my cards with that, i don;t know if this causes the gtx 580 to throttle as i havent used this card, but its the best stability program for cards imo, so give that a try,

Thanks! I'll run that now.

My computer actually just shut down before I ran the test. I tried to turn it back on and it was unresponsive. Actually that's not true. I hit the power button, the motherboard came on and stuff. Mouse was off. Monitor was off. I was in the middle of black ops when it crashed. My CPU is also overclocked so it could have been that or the RAM but I'm not sure. I would have figured that would blue screen before it shut down because of voltage issues.

Could this have been the video card? I actually had no throttling, no stuttering, and no artifacting in game so it was weird to me. I powered on and the computer didn't turn the monitor back on for a minute or so. My temps are still sub 50s.

Should I push the voltage up to 1.1v and try again?

I'm pretty sure it must have shut down due to the graphics cards. I am not entirely sure why...? But it said that the driver had encountered an error and had to shut down but was recovered.

Once again, I saw no stuttering, throttling, or artifacts. I don't know why it would have shut down except for maybe not enough voltage? I boosted the voltage to 1.1 and tried again and the same problem occurred. I couldn't tell you why. Either way, I will not go beyond 1.1v and I think my happy overclock is 920/1840/2100.

Should I flash the BIOS?

So I just played a full 2 rounds of Black Ops and then my computer crashed at the end of the round. Any ideas why this would have happened? Is it because of the overclock? Should I reduce it even more? I thought 920/1840 was normal?

Try 1.088v and 900Core/2100 Mem

I just tried 1.1v at 900/2100 and I crashed in my second game of Black Ops... I'm going to try to run it at stock again and see what happens...that's ridiculous.

Well, first of all, the throttling mechanism can be shut down. Just download the latest version of GPU-Z, open it through a shortcut with the parameter: /GTX500OCP at the end. GPU-Z will shortly open, then close down. This means, the throttle is disabled. First pull down your clocks to default. Then try Furmark, you will see a high increase in FPS and temp. Try overclocking this way.
Edit: Throttle will only reset on reboot. So Throttle will remain off during whole windows session.
As for Core/Shader clocks, I'm pretty sure the gtx500's don't have a core clock, just a shader clock. But Afterburner pretends there is, but they aren't unlinkable. If you try Nvidia Inspecter, you can't adjust the core clock, just the shader clock. This is perfectly fine.
Mine is now at 950mhz, 1.15V on air, but, haven't done this with furmark and throttle off. Still think that it might have been a better idea. But it works for me now.
Throttle off also means more power consumption.. a lot more.. And more warmth of course.
Try it .

Black Ops isn't the most graphical intense game out there.... Try Metro 2033 with 4xmsaa all settings very high.. it'll crash sooner than Black Ops if unstable.

Second of all, I don't understand why you want to flash your bios? Is it to set the overclocked speed as default? Why? To make your pc 'unstable' and overclocked even when not necessary? Most games run super at just a single 580 with standard clocks. Even power consumption rises when you overkill at high clocks. I think it's just overkill, just do it with software. And only use it in games that require more performance.
You are running your GPU on water? If not, you could flash your bios to unlock 100% fan, which is now fixed at max 85%. But I guess EVGA has an update for it either, without breaking 'warranty'.
If you really want to flash: Try NiBiTor (only works with 32 bit windows for flashing and backup), and backup a rom/flashing through NVFlash (make bootable usb stick with DOS). You can also backup current bios with GPU-Z, but not flash a new one. Use NiBiTor to edit the bios. Some expertise necessary, since you can only use the FERMI tables, you won't see clocks filled in like older gpu's did in NiBiTor.
