Man you need to backup your facts. Get it through your thick head. This card's don't just die. You have to do something really stupid like put 1.2v through it and leave the fan on auto. Thank god new drivers should save those cards now.
You talk like you know so much but where is your GTX 590? Have you done testing on it like some people already have to say how full of crap many of you are saying the card's will die no matter what, that they underclock bellow 600Mhz etc...
I posted benchmarks at 775Mhz for the GTX 590. So get your facts straight
Here is Brutuz with the launch of the GTX 480.
OMG that's freaking loud and hot. Why would anyone buy this card? How could you possibly overclock this card when it gets to 90+ without overclock. Plus is only 5% faster than the 5870
I bet he felt off his chair when I had my GTX 480 @ 900Mhz
I bet he almost got a heart attack when the GTX 480 broke world records. As of today the GTX 480 is also about 20% faster then the 5870 and even more when you overclock both cards
Burtuz don't let it happen again. You might be eating your words afterwards.
You both are drawing conclusions too soon.
But a fact is a fact, cards are dying, cards are throttling.
Only one review stated they put 1.2v to the card, TPU.
Most were at stock, another admitted to a 125mv increase, which is increasing the voltage from .91 to 1.035.
In the OCN 590 owners club, there has already been a death reported, as well as throttling.
And trying to use the LN2 runs to support an argument, no no.
Those cards will be heavily modified to take the required voltage.
So that 900mhz you hit, was that with the extra 120mm fans zip tied to the shroud?
But both of you need to step back and give this time to develop, as we all do.
