[HWC][Nvidia] Nvidia's response to GTX 590's frying - Page 2  

post #11 of 172
So let me get this straight. The reviewers were at fault, not Nvidia by overvolting them past design specifications?

Hope they're still eligible for RMA...

Although I would give them a little slack on the drivers bit, they are important. But I mean common, theres some flimsy voltage tolerance there for sure, and when you produce a product in this industry trying to top out as the best of the best, its expected that you can push it past its specs. this is why the top end AMD CPUs always come unlocked: "Who would spend 70-120% more for .2ghrz unless they were an enthusiast, and enthusiasts OC, if for no other reason than because the can!"

they say they designed the card that way because they wanted it quiet. They should take a page from the book of PSU manufacturers, they build them to be a silent as possible, but if it gets dangerously hot, they'll rip start their proverbial chainsaw if need be to keep the thing alive!

I think this is an unfair statement.

I fry cards all the time, 99% of the time, when it happens; it's a driver issue.

Fried a 6990 last week and a 6970; shall I start a thread and claim the card was faulty as are all 6990s? No...Because that's wrong and unreasonable.

People fried their cards because of over-heating on Beta drivers...Every review where the card was fried; said that...

So, it is, 100%, a driver issue and is/was solved.

You fry cards all the time? Like seriously? Like why would you do that? Doesn't that simply say that you don't have the knowledge to overclock or pushing the cards way to high?

If you look at the facts, I dont think you'd share the same sentiment.

GTX 590 has a total of 12 power phases. Divided by two, you have 4 for the GPU, 1 for the Memory Controller and 1(dual phase) for the memory. So effectively, it's a 4+2 phase power supply powering a 150~170W chip.

Sound dangerous?

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/94...hy-choose.html

I think so, especially since the GTX 580 originally comes with 6+2 power phases. 4+2 is just teetering on the brink of failure.

And 4+2 phases are inadequate even for GTX 570's, as seen here.

Just curious how its Nvidia's fault that people over-volted the card.

Overvolted? People have had their GTX 580's safe at 1.2v. In fact, isnt the stock of a GTX 580 about 1.1v?
