Read up on the issue and see what causes it. It has less to do with Nvidia's shoddy components and more with idiots pumping 1.2v into a video card. There's a reason 1.1v is the locked voltage in Afterburner, cause it's not DESIGNED to be ran at such high voltage.

GEEZUS!
I'm sorry sir. I don't think you have been paying attention to the votlages stated in that list. The entire thread has information on what specs of the 570s were. Some were under 1.1 and still blew up. Please read.

OT: Go grab a couple of 560Ti's. They seem like the DX11 8800s. You can OC these like monsters also. Going to high nice clocks on these. Some have hit 1GHz if I remember correctly.

For a cheap, but effective surround gaming solution, grab the two cheapest GTX 570s or 580s that you can and water cool them. I would grab three just for the heck of it.

If you care about fan noise then get the Asus of TFII. They will keep cooler at a lower noise level.

Though I voted for the TFII I think the Asus will be better for your P55 mobo.

I'm very conservative when it comes to OC'ing GPUs. I'm not the one to be messing around with GPU voltages. I only OC GPUs within their limits...that's risky enough for me. So with that being said, I should be just fine with a reference 570 with moderate OCs (if I even decide to OC the GPU).

For the Eyefinity setup I was building, dual 6870s would have been enough but that's not the case anymore I only see 3d Surround in the future

So a 4+1 phase design for a 175w card isn't bad right? Average CPUs don't go to 150w under heavy OCs and you will blow your motherboard unless it has a 8+1 phase design.

Seems to work fine for 99% of the masses that don't disable the OCP or push stupid voltages, so yes it is fine.

Here's some examples in case you don't understand.


User: xxbassplayerxx
Core Voltage: 1.212V (1.223 with DMM)
Clocks: 1100/1200
OCP/Power limit disabled: Nope!
Load Temperature: -40C
VRM Cooling: Stock unisink / cold from phase / fan
What you were doing: Running Vantage Performance

User: jonjryjo
Core Voltage: 1.1v
Clocks:900/1800/2100
OCP/Power limit disabled: Yes via /GTX500OCP gpu-z argument.
Load Temperature: 58*C, it never went above 45 with power limit enabled.
VRM Cooling: DDGTX580
What you were doing: OCCT

User: slickric21
Core Voltage: 1.05
Clocks: 880/2000
OCP/Power limit disabled: Yes, via GPUZ 1.5.1 & /GTX500OCP

What you were doing: OCCT GPU, full screen/complexity 8.

Do we see a trend here? Of the 12 reported dead cards in that thread hosted here on OCN, 7 were because of either insane voltages or OCP being removed.
