Robs03gts Squall_Rinoa86 It's an ASUS... >_> 1.05 might be safe but not to sure on 1.15 This is not your typical gtx 570 though, I think it has either the same number of VRM's as a GTX 580 or maybe even more? Thats why I was thinking that it should be safe for 1.15vc but I wasnt completely sure.
Johhny Doe I'm sure it's safe as long as you cool it well, ramp up the fan to blow more air on the VRM's as you said. These guys in that link either have bad cards or junky PSU's or something else, because I've OCed non-ref GTX 285's that sucked more power on crappier phases for months. The DirectCU has a row of those Eagle phases that were used on MSI's Lightning card for extreme OCing. The card is capable of more than 1.15, this is no Trio R30 crap. Also, the core is cooled very well on that card. I want to add that the quality of the phases is what you should look at. Companies are taking away customers` money with more phases = better theory. Like Gigabyte's 24 Phase Power crap, which gets beaten by DFI's 8 way Digital phases. They take 8 phases and split them into 16 then to 24. I'd be worried about it's memory because they aren't cooled on the DirectCU. Put some copper VGA sinks on them and you're good.
ty_ger07 I know everyone here and in those other linked posts have good intentions, but the number of VRM phases means nothing without further specifications. With more phases, people assume that they will be capable of providing more wattage to the core and that each phase will be carrying less wattage and will therefore be less likely to burn out. But can anyone confirm the designed wattage limits of the GTX 570, GTX 580, and non-reference GTX 570 cards? My point is that having two more phases in the non-reference GTX 570 design would be no better if the VRM for each phase was only rated for 3/4 of the wattage of the reference GTX 570. I'm only playing devil's advocate here and not necessarily implying that the non-reference GTX GTXs are no better that the reference GTX 570s. All I am saying is that you guys need to start asking the right questions and start doing the right research to find the true answer instead of just assuming that more phases = better.
outlawii Just give it a solid 2.00 volts and see what happens! LOL
outlawii Seriously dude its up to you if u wanna push it that hard go for it,but in all honesty i wouldnt see why u would these cards run everything i have at stock volts.
Robs03gtsI was under the impression though that the phases in this specific gtx 570 were of solid quality.
outlawii Just be careful dude that is too sexy of a card to smoke! By the way what are the temps like on that beast?
Johhny Doe Robs03gts By the way, roids or natural? lol. Sorry, I had to.
Robs03gts Lol what?
Johhny Doe Robs03gts Lol what? Argh, I thought you were working out. Nvm hehe. Zalmans are ok but I'd go for copper instead of aluminum. http://heatsinkfactory.co...ramsinks---8-pack.html
Robs03gts Lol what?
Johhny Doe Yep, you gotta work out on your arms. Your tri's are lacking a lot, but you got good gens: big forearms and frame. I'm 6'1, 200 at most. However, I had much bigger arms at that time. Also, you're 5 years older than me so with better workout you'd have been more succesful.
