EVGA GTX 570 or SC 570?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Is there any difference between the two besides the super clocked 570 having higher clock speeds?

If i were to overclock the stock 570 to the same speed as the SC 570, would the temps and fan speeds be the same?

In the end, is it worth it to get the super clocked EVGA GTX 570? Newegg also ran out, so i'm unsure if i should wait or not.

SC versions use a higher quality section of the silicone wafer which gives a better chance for higher overclocks. You might get lucky and get a good OC from the vanilla version but personally I think it's worth spending the extra $10 just in case.

I would love to see one shred.

Since you are already beyond the threshold of budget then I would recommend you spend the extra $10 and play it safe.

Here is a quote from EVGA Jacob on binning:

Quote:
Yes, generally speaking the SC's should OC a bit higher than the Reference ones, this is because they are selected.

The FTW ones I suspect are clocking higher because of the water cooling.
And they have a history of binning so I don't see any reason why they would stop.

There is no binning difference whatsoever. I've seen SC and Vanilla versions OC to the same potential time and time again. Get either or imo.

Anyone know?

And how long do you think it will take newegg.com to have SC 570's in stock again?

They already have them.

It looks like it's just a different design thats not in stock.

The out of stock design has mini-HDMI and 2 DVI ports. The one that's available is shorter, has standard HDMI, 2 DVI ports (arranged differently), and also adds a display port. Wouldn't the one in stock with the larger fan also run cooler and quieter?

Says the boy with the superclocked version. So if theres no difference then why did you pay the extra? Everybody knows theres a binning process, the term "binning process" wasnt dreamt up in some nerds wet dream

The SC is only worth it if you want to pay for the extra guaranteed stock speeds (and EVGA will honor your warranty by returning you a SC card should you need to RMA it). If you are not averse to overclocking on your own, though, you can save the extra money and do it yourself. Other than that, there is virtually no substantial difference as both tend to have the same overclocking ceiling regardless if it is binned or not.

Thats not the superclocked GPU i was talking about. But is there any difference between the HD one and the regular one besides the display port and different fan placement?

If i were to overclock the stock 570 to the same speed as the SC 570, would the temps and fan speeds be the same? Does nobody know the answer to this?
