Hello world...
I was wondering what can I use to oc my GV-N580UD-15I effectively? I see a record was broken with 2 of these cards and I have 3 that I mounted water blocks on. I tried oc guru and it says my card isn't supported. I tried msi afterburner and it works for 10 mins then the card goes half the speed.

Thanks

What do you mean by half the speed? Is it showing reduced clocks during 3d load? (You can use MSI Afterburner's OSD to view clock speed and load etc.).

I have never had any problems with MSI Afterburner, it has always successfully overclocked all of my cards.

Do you mean all of the cards go this speed too? As you only mentioned "card" like only one is being used.

It's weird. I oc it to 825 from 792. Run msi kombuster and I get like 120 FPS. Then after 10 mins or so the frames drop to 40. I re start kombuster and frames still at 40 showing the right oc I set. Never did this on my evga 580. Think my card is defective?

As Badbonji asked does this apply to all three cards or just one ?

What happens if you swap the card for one of the others ? Does the same thing still happen ?

Perhaps you could re-phrase your answer as I am still not clear. If you insert one any card into the first slot does it have the same effect ?

EasyTune6 worked well for me when I have overclocked.

I disagree. Manual overclocking is the best way. Easytune6 is well too high overvoltages.
