Here is a change in my system. I'm thinking of changing my sound card to an ASUS Xonar STX and gettign around to installing the Noctua Fan I powder coated the shroud black. Then I think my systems nice and finished until I decide to upgrade to the 2011 Platform.


Fan looks identical to this (This pic was taken by another user in these forums)
Looks like it would be good.

I have been doing a little reading, and I know I dont have the best PSU, but I think I hit the OCP on the 12V rail inside the PSU. It makes more sense than overloading a PSU at an estimated 900watt usage. The Noise Blocker in my PSU should be easily doing better than my old generic fan that was in there. We will see, I benched it hard two days now, so now I am taking some time off till probably Sunday, from benching. One of you trouble makers can take over for me.

3DMark11 Sweet spot: 720-730 core @ 0.963v, started at stock, got all the way to 725 and I went over, I might even pool together my 22 tests I did today in a spreadsheet if any one wants to try their hand at it.

Heaven will take whatever you want to "stablely" throw at it. My record was 823,1646,3600 @ 1.038v, although after what I learnt today, memory OC might be useless. I was trying to get it as close to stock GTX 580 as I could, but I don't see it happening now, and I ended up hurting my 3DMark tests with anything over 5 MHz.

I can almost guarantee that you are using all your PSU can do. My 590 destroyed my TruePower Quattro 1000W. I upgraded to a single rail AX1200 and now I am getting super stable everything.... the first drivers that have a less restrictive OCP mechanism in them and I will see how high I can get on air.

The sad thing was, when my psu became taxed to its maximum it started throwing very very bad (varying) voltages and fried my mobo.....

So now I am going to be more carefull...

Just went out of stock on Newegg again!

I want to pick 2 of these cards up, but wasn't able to grab it in time on Newegg, anyone know how often they reappear in the inventory?

I killed a card today... only temporarily =)

I believe I drew more power than my PSU could deliver on my 12v2 rail.

GPU went down for about 5 minutes only to bounce right back. Believe it took a minute or two to cool down my PSU to be honest.

So two overclocked GTX 590s + 4.8GHz on a i7 980x, drained my 1200W power supply. What a shame... Anybody want to trade PSUs (1200W for a 1200W) so I can keep benching =)?

wait.. so 1000watts PSU is not enough for single gtx 590?

Well 1000 watts is enough watts, if your power supply is able to deliver all of those watts to whatever needs them, but if you have rails whether it be 2,3,4,5,6,7,8+ then the amount of watts is split up across certain modular cables and you may not be able to get a combination that works.

Also something to be aware of, watts is not the only thing you have to watch, amps is also crucially important. My last power supply, which was a very nice one, was not able to supply enough amps with the 2 rails I could plug into it, the card just drew too much power.

My system isn't a typical gaming system either, its a media storage hub as well as running a local dns cache. So my 6 TB of hard drive space spread across 5 mechanical hard drives pulls a decent amount of power when added to the high end sound card/video card/processor. It all adds up.

This card has a spec of 50A for your system, which is an over-estimate on nvidias part to be safe. But my previous power supply was only able to supply 25A on a single rail, of which it had 4. So I needed to split my hard drives between rails, because they drew too much for 1, and my processor/motherboard needed 1.... that left the video card with 25A and change.... it just didn't work.....

I think it is, as long as the amperage is there on your 12v rail(s).

I think I tripped OCP on my PSU or it over heated that puppy. Like I said, heavily overclocked gulftown, 2x 30% oced GTX 590s, and 5 mechanical hard drives, an optical drive, all the peripherals, and a sound card. Plus 3x Ultra Kazes, 3x GentleTyphoons, and 2x not so Gentle Typhoons (150 cfm ones) have to steal some amperage.

6990 is normally throttling in Metro 2033 and 3DMark Vantage, but not in Heaven.

So it wouldn't be strange if 590 was throttling in 3DMark 2011.
More aggressively then in other applications, that is.

This is true only with one of the 2 BIOS on the 6990.

The 6990 is not throttling if you are using the AUSUM BIOS. It's only throttling with the stock BIOS. Powertune limits are different in both BIOS.

Anand did a good article on that, talking about the differences in both BIOS. Anand were not able to reach the limit or get any throttling with the AUSUM BIOS, no matter what they were trying.

9999999999.99% driver issues, give them a chance to mature for both cards. The results look anemic no matter who is doing what to them =/

I totally agree. The 6990 is also still running on beta 11.4 preview drivers. But it's surprinsigly good, compared to the 5970 launch, that was a mess.

AMD put 2 BIOS on the 6990 for a reason. 1 BIOS has the ''regular'' AMD PowerTune and TDP values, while the other one has a much higher Powertune limit and TDP.

So one BIOS will throttle if you push the card too far, but not the other one. So if you use a waterblock and one to push the card hard, you use the AUSUM BIOS to avoid getting any throttling.

I'm sure next gen cards from Nvidia will have something like that, or the same general idea. A BIOS switch with different Powertune limit is great idea for enthusiasts.
