OC your 590, it blows up on you, you're still eligible for warranty.
OC your 6990, warranty BLOWS UP ON YOU. Unless, you're on XFX. But, who buys XFX these days?

Eh what?

if you over clokc the 6990 its still able to be RMA'd..... What you on? drugs of some kind?

I have flashed my 6950's to 6970s and overvolted and oced... And if one died i would fully expect it to be replaced under warrenty.

What puzzles me is: I don't know why your voltage/tempature safety features would be rely on software control. I would think it would be possible to implement them completely in hardware.

A few well placed dioeds would solve the voltage issue

Drivers may/may not be any problem with this, but it's mainly people not know it's true power and believing they can over-clock it like any normal card. Which is not true smile.gif

Does that mean when its in a life or death situation it will all of the sudden pull extra framerates out of its butt in order to destroy the great evil?

I completely agree w/this.

A 590 at stock is 100% FINE; period, no questions asked.

If you OC, you do so at your own risk and the DRIVER issue has been resolved...

They fixed a hardware issue with software.

The cards performance is still hurt by their lack of vrms.

It's their FLAGSHIP CARD, I would've thought they'd make it able to be overclocked.

Moral of the story.

Buy 2 GTX 580's if you want real power, Not a GTX 590.

I think the GTX570 issue is more worrying than this. The 590 blow ups can be blamed on drivers.
The 570 blowups are a little more random.

We recommend anyone using the GTX 590 board with the reference aircooler stick with the default voltage while overclocking

Well, there goes your argument nvidia fanboys who claimed this thing would clock to 900mhz. It looks like the 6990 is the king for now.

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/943109-why-vrms-big-issue-why-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.
