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.

Thanks!

It is such a good block, i'm getting ~50c load temps with the cpu loaded and 930 core w/ 1.138v(max in afterburner).

I have mine at a 24/7 clock of 1000/4500 @ 1.88v. That is 2D and 3D with no downclocking. As I need 1.213v to hit 1015/4560, it made no sense for me to bump up the voltage for so minor an increase in clocks. Though if I could hold 1050 MHz I would have no qualms @ 1.213 24/7/365.

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

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.

And "don't really need more than that"? LOL You have 4 gtx 580's, I only have one!
