i'm having a hard time with vantage atm,but messing around with 03 and 06 i was able to run past 1000 on core
used a super mega prolima cpu cooler in a 24f shed with this unlocked to 1.21v bios.
i will try some vantage runs warmer today thuo
card "A" vid 1.01v
about 2c room temp stock cooler 1.18,any more lead to black screen vrm temps i think?
card "B" vid .096v
custom cooling 3c room temp 1.21v no black screen issues
bout time i get a good fermi
BTW Any info on hardmods?

Nice scores and OC guys! Keep pushing it!
Beside, I have a huge doubt. I have the possibility to buy for the same price ($489) an MSI GTX 570 or a MSI GTX 480 Lightning, wich should I get? I just cant decide for my own on this one
thats a hard call,it really is.
I think performance wize, they are roughly the same or not a lot of differance...more of a side by side upgrade.
but hey, who am I to talk I went to a 580 from a 480 and I like that change, not a major upgrade,small performance increase.. but some
Yes, its actually one of the most complex upgrades in my life :p
In the benchmarks, wich is better? Also for OC. Maybe this two things could make the choice a little bit easy.
As for overclocking on air i'd go with the 570,if hardcore clocks and fancy ln2 cooling is your thing get the Lightning.
Even with the tiny bit of less ram I'd give the nod to the 570 for only one reason it might be the better gamer/air benching card thats easier to live with.
What no 1 got a 570? were all the overclocks?
(and the hardmods lol)
trying to find a pencil mod for rams i'll post back if i get lucky

I decide to go for the 570, probably in the first week of january i will get it, before i have to finish some important stuff and buy the xmas gift for my whole family T_T
Anyway, ppl! we need more results in this thread!!! :p
Does the stock unisink that comes with the gtx 570 still fit without the thermal pads? I'm planning on using tim instead for better performance.
What voltages and cooling do you guys use on the 570
Intel i7 4770k 4.3 1.185V (Still Testing)
MSI Z87-G45 GAMING
2X4GB G-skill 2400Mhz CL10
60GB OCZ Agility 3
27" Samsung P2770
Coolermaster 750W GX
Gigabyte 3D Aurora
Antec Kuhler 920
Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
stock cooling ( air)...ambient temperature 18C

Mine was running 850 core 1150 ram until today, when it decided it wants to artifact even at stock ram speed
Phenom II 940 BE / ASUS M4A79 / HD5770 Crossfire
3770mhz CPU 2600mhz NB | DDR1040 5-5-5-15 | 900/1250
How are you guys managing to get beyond the 1.100v limit in MSI afterburner, I tried the unlocker and when trying to save the config file it wont let me.
I really need more volts, have some artifacts at 900 so reckon it needs a little more juice.
What kind of speeds can you guys run through the heaven benchmark at, I can't even run 830/1900 without increasing from stock voltages
It also might be my imagination but I think I see artifacts all the time on this card since the day I got it, and at stock frequencies
send those cards that arti at stock speeds back.
well we cant unlock anything but as you look around the net there sure is alot of 570's runing 1g+ with water/cold air and volts.
BTW in my first post is an unlocked to 1.21v evga standard 570 bios it may be what some of you guys need to help hit 950+.
remember you should set fan to max when adding volts.
