570 overclocking help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay well as a complete overclocking noob, i just wanted to post and get some advice on the process of overclocking my graphics card.

I just registered my card on EVGA after a lot of procrastination and can RMA if my card goes BOOM. that being said i would prefer it not go BOOM.

I wanted to know what is the "safe voltage" for 570 cards that most people agree on that wont fry my card. ive tried to find it but i cant find it anywhere.

Still reading throught a couple of threads on how to overclock but a basic summary woudnt hurt and id appreciate it. HOWEVER i do not want to seem like a lazy person who wants to be spoonfed and want to clarify that i am doing other research into this.

Thank you in advance

EDIT: also what are the best drivers for 570

u dont have to raise the voltage for a slight overclock i got my 460 200mhz past stock with no voltage increase use msi after burner or evga precison
post #3 of 8
ok u link the core clock and shader clock than raise it a lil bit at a time than run kombuster or i like ati tool works with all cards just to scan for artifacts in ati tool hit scan for artifacts and watch the lil cube it il beep if u have any artifacts and ull see lil yellow dots pop up that means u took it to far

Doubtful, your gonna need around 865 core to reach 580 speeds. I had a good clocker, it did 900core at 1.05 and 800core at .975. Its gonna depend on your stock VID to what your card will reach.

580 clocks are nearly irrelevant as there are other variables that limit the 570, 580 performance is easily attainable by most cards. I believe that 850 core and 2000 memory benches about the same as a 580, but a good portion of 570s can go past that. On stock voltage, you won't be matching a 580 unless you got a horribly excessive stock voltage.

Just don't take your voltage past 1.1v, and your card will most likely be perfectly fine. If it fails below that, chances are it would have failed regardless of overclock, though it may have taken longer.

Also, I wouldn't take much stock in Kombustor as a stability test. My card did 850 core on stock vid without any problems in Kombustor, but I couldn't even get through the initial loading screens for games. Best stability tester I've found is the crysis benchmark, though I'm sure metro 2033's would work fine as well. Best stability test is whatever the most intensive game you have, play it.

As for drivers, the new beta drivers are great for 570s.

not sure about the 570 but also adjust ur fan in msi after burner settings adjust it to cool the card accordingly,and u can raise the memorey clock too have fun gluck
post #8 of 8
ya kombuster isnt the best i just said that bc it comes with msi after burner and it cant hurt,ya crysis bench would b good,but ati tool works well in my opinion and its not jus for ati cards

but ya the most intensive games are the real test ati tool will give u a ballpark without havin to open a game every 2mins
