voltage? OC?
those are determining factors... as well as fan profiles when discussing heat

They're in his sig, same voltage as you only 50mhz higher on the core.

My temps should be dropping soon, I just won this case from Newegg's case contest. It'll definitely fit a 212+ too, so that's now in the mail to me.

I'll definitely be doing a new round of tests for temperatures once everything is installed.

Sad thing is, only a couple hours before I saw I won, I had just bought another Blue LED fan to improve my current case's airflow.... Orange + Blue LEDs works, right? It's already shipped, so I'd be paying probably $8 to return a 12$ fan and then $1.80 on the restock fee...

yeah Orange and Blue works well... Look at the Denver Broncos... haha

I missed the signature...
in fact... I am currently waiting for my new Direct CUII 570 to be shipped back to me. I sent mine back.

and I have an orange LED fan from the NZXT Vulcan if you need one... its 120mm too

Well it looks like I'll be pulling the trigger for this beast. I'll have my 570 DirectCU II next week. Thanks for making this thread Sohryu76. This thread along with the few awesome site reviews I had found have convinced me that this is the gpu for me

I did my best to give this an average joe review. And not make it insanely technical like the professional review sites. But this card is by far a wonderful graphics monster.

Yo straight up Asus need to include some sort of wire support to hold up the damn thing it's so heavy. A beautiful card that I read performs brilliantly but just really heavy it has some proper sag to it straight out of the box.

so you dont know from experience? you are posting based off what you read? It has already been reported here many times there is no sag...

but thank you for your input

I just got this card and I wanted to ask here, what's the best software for overclock, and voltage tuning ? Is it Smart Doctor ?

MSI AB doesn't give me Voltage control with this card....

Im using smart doctor without issue but i did have to remove gamer osd which was causing game stutter, also im using msi afterburner for fan profiles though. good luck on the oc.

Smart Doctor doesn't give me voltage control ? Doe's anyone know what's the problem, I'm using newest drivers but I tried older drivers and no voltage control...
