Obviously your choice but the stock cards run fine with no problems normally. It is only sometimes with the OC cards.

maybe the problem is caused by the reference design wich has 6 phase VRM, and is not very good for overclocking or overvolting.

Could possibly be. They overclock ok manuallly but some dont seem to take the factory OC very well.

Hello
I have two GTX 570 graphics card reference models (Gigabyte and EVGA). Value of increasing voltage, from experience I can tell you that as long as you do not remove the OCP and the value does not exceed 1.1V voltage, there is no problem with the video card's VRM. Can I say I'm the happy owner of a copy of Gigabyte GTX570 excellent, running it with standard cooling at 1000MHz GPU and 2250Mhz  memory, with a supply voltage of 1.1V GPU.
@StrelokL94   you could increase the GPU voltage feeders with 1-2 units and I think you can get things done.

The card is already dead, I raised the voltage to 1.063, the core clock to 900mhz and the memory to 2150, and while i was playing crysis 2 it died.

Sorry to hear that. You've probably got a weak copy.
This is my Gigabyte GTX 570:

Yeah, maybe that was the problem. At what voltage you run it? 1.1?

Re: GTX 570 OC PROBLEM !!!!!!

Yes, 1.1V, is the maximum allowed in nvidia inspector.

How long it takes to RMA a GTX570 OC ? I'm still waiting.

Have you not recieved a reply to your RMA request yet ? If not I would advise contacting them again as sometimes these things get lost along the way.

I just got it , now i'm gonna test it and see if there are any problems.

It has no problems at stock. Can someone tell me if there is any safe voltage? I want to overclock it but i have to overvolt it too. The first one died on 1.063v.

I would advise you to run it for a while at stock speeds and make sure that there is no issues with it first. If it is ok then you can fairly safely try overclocking it.

These cards are terribly risky to overclock. The VRMs on them are prone to dying and from what I remember, it's best to keep the voltage =<1.05v. Frankly, I wouldn't go much above 1v at all. Your cooling solution won't matter either. I've seen one blown with VRMs running below 0 Celsius. It's the same situation as with GTX 590, the VRMs can't cope with the amount of watts they have to deliver.

So it will be ok if the voltage is 1.025v? or 1.013v? the stock voltage is 0.977v
