By shorten the lifespan, all I meant is that it isn't going to last as long as it would have otherwise. Both how long it would of lasted and how much overclocking will shorten that are going to be different card by card, so we can't really give you numbers. It's fully possible that you'll never see the end of the card's life cycle or you'll see it in 12 months. Especially since no one has been running a 570 for more than 6 months, for all we know 570s could fail after 6000 hours of use like clockwork.

Basically, just know that when pushing the voltage up, you increase the chance of failure, the further you push the higher the increase. If you're really worried about it, just run the OC til your warranty runs out then go back to stock clocks, but if you make it through the warranty, your card should last a while longer. And if you're really worried, just go with EVGA and don't OC that much, your card will be covered for far longer than you use it, and if it fails once they no longer carry 570s, you'll get a newer card that's probably stronger than a 570.

Overclocking isn't risk free, but that's definitely not a reason to avoid it.

Those are all reference 570's you're talking about. And all EVGA has now are those HD "Horrible Design" versions.

I've got a Gigabyte Windforce3x version, purely because it was the only non-reference cooler card here in New Zealand. We don't have the Gainward/MSI TF etc. I didn't know about the VRM's until recently. Although now the Asus GTX570 DCII has been released here I'm gonna get that for SLI but just keep the voltage conservative so the Gigabyte card won't fail so soon.
