Hey guys, I'm just wondering, what is the max volts I could use for 24/7 safely on my gtx 580? Also, it is water cooled.

That's true. For stress testing my whole system, I usually just fold on both the gpu and cpu, and if it can make it without any errors overnight, I consider it stable.Originally Posted by Defoler;11983747
Totally depends on the temps you get and the stability of the card.
If you can go 1000 core at 1.2v and keep it very stable and under 70c, go for it.
And stable is not 10-15 minutes in furmark.
Its giving it hell for a few hours to make 100% sure its really safe.
Else, you can say "hey, its cool and safe" and 3 days later the card goes BEEP and died on you because it wasn't stable and just crashed on itself.
I'm keeping mine in a modest 840 core and 2050 memory at 1.1v for 24/7. Don't really need more than that
