Stability testing GTX570 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
bear in mind different applications stress the card in different ways.

And a lot of people burn out cards because they're idiots. They try to push a card to 100% of it's capabilities without first realizing overclocking is taking a risk, and without any kind of real knowledge of what they're doing. I think if you want to change the clock settings on your GPU, nvidia shouldn't make it available through the default drivers. They should make it available through an additional app easily available on their website. I'm sure there's people who see it there and think they can just make their graphics card faster by moving this little bar over a bit.

Like overclocking your CPU can blow out your motherboard, not just your CPU.

And running "stability tests" for 24 hours straight is just stupid, that's not a stability test, that's trying to burn out your card. That's what companies do to test how long their product lasts, overclock it to the extreme, run it at 100% capacity until the card fails.

Wait 10 dead cards since release over 3 months ago? There are tons of overclocked 570's doing just fine and this is the only forum you read about this issue. Dig around the EVGA forums and you find 580's dying from furmark. Dig around [H]/TPU/Anandtech forums and check a variety of cards dying from overclocking. It happens no big deal.
