OWNERS CLUB

After receiving my GTX580 DCII recently, I absolutely fell in

with the card's cooler.
I figured brilliant coolers as such deserves a club place on OCN, so first thing first...

I usually overclock my card to 800mhz core, but know is stock, here is the gpu-z.
I must ask, this is the first thread on overclock.net dedicated to DirectCU II and I users ?

Ok found camera and took a shot First thing is i know it looks dirty but compressed air wont take that dust off and im gunna clean it right when i get new mobo in the future

Validation http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/26emz/ as a side note i can get to 900 core clock and higher but i dont want to atm unless i get a bigger PSU. (its on the list)

yeah, getting a little dusty is somewhat inevitable, i can't be bothered to clean it too often either

i'm loving that pencil (or whatever it is) supporting the card

luckily i don't have such problem with my silverstone case

My card stays ok in the HAF 932, it's a bit lower, about 30%, nothing to huge to be a problem.

haha, i know i kinda jumped ahead by updating my sig. but officially i'm not on the members list yet as you can see, will have pics posted in a few hours after I get back home.

as regards to overclock, i've only just got my card 2 days ago, lol, played a bit of medal of honour at stock speeds and noticed an improvement at 1080p compared to my old 470 with a 100mhz overclock.

i was just about to ask you about your overclock actually, what temps do you get at your settings? and at what fan settings and what voltage? i'm thinking about clocking my 580 at somewhere between 850-900mhz, will get to overclock it over the weekend i guess

well i got upto 900MHz and kept my temps under 90C stressing but on average in games my temps dont go past 72c-75c and i leave it on auto settings to cooling and even with a my current OC of 882/1764 @ 1.100V it takes me about 1.25ish to get to 900MHz and i know i can still push farther on it but i dont want to push this card untill i get a new PSU as my 550W is pushing it as they recommend a 600W for the 580 lol

if you are going to OC just keep bumpen up the Core by 5-10Mhz at a time and test it. when it starts to get unstable then just bump up the voltage a little until it gets stable.
Remember not all the Asus 580 CUII's will hit 900+Mhz as they dont seem to bin there cards like the MSI lightning for example

alrighty then, here are some of my 580 photos, no close up shots of the cooler of the card unfortunately, as i installed my card into the 3rd pciex16 slot so that it's as far away from my cpu and northbridge as possible for better temps

here's a shot of the back plate which i absolutely love

thanks for the info and advice, much appreciated

so you need 1.1 volts for 882, that's not too bad i'd imagine. i've heard that asus don't bin their cards, but to be honest i don't think i will push my card too far for 24/7 use, not anytime soon anyway, might just clock it at 850 for a while and go from there i guess. surely 850 should be relatively hassle free right? i sure hope so

UPDATED!

of course it counts, good to finally have a amd card up there in the list
smile.gif


that's pretty impressive clocks you got there, what temps does it reach at 950mhz?
