nice review wrong backplate picture
wow nice card and nice review wizz
but one mistake on the page ''a closer look'' there is a picture of the backplate from the gtx580 xd not gtx 570
i love gtx 570's
He probably reused the pictures from the 580 review since the cooler is identical.
I like what ASUS has done with these two cards. They've given people a high performance option without the noise, and they've done it with a massive quiet cooler, and lower voltage. I may be picking one of these up soon.
They have also given them a reason to buy the GPU jack for an extra $10 so the weight of the card does tear your PCIe slot apart.
fixed the picture
the card is not heavy enough to need a gpu jack to support it, if it were i'd have complained about it in the review
Good review, but really would have liked to know what clock you could have got with more volts (upto 1.1) + the resulting fps increase
I've just bought Asus GTX 570 Direct CU II and I can't change voltage. It's not available in Asus Smart Doctor or MSI AB (2.1 beta 6, on reference card I could change V). What can be the problem? Should I install drivers from Asus? (i've Nvidia Forceware now).
Thank you in advance for help
hi i would like to buy this graphic card to replace my GTX 275.. (ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5) with dual fan [ASUS GeForce GTX 570 Direct CU II]
my computer is a Quad core 3.0 ghx with 4 gig of ram...
my power supply is a 750 watt antec truepower will it be okay with the power supply ?
Could you link us to your exact PSU model? There are a couple versions of the Antec TruePower 750W.
This link is a great resource for ballparking PSU requirements. It's not perfectly accurate, but gives you an idea of where you should be.
Its this one TP-750
That PSU is just fine for this card.
That PCB photo does not let you identify the VRM controller.. Any idea what's the controller type? If we're lucky it's supported by MSI Afterburner and just needs a tweak into the config files.
Goes to show you megapixels are not everything
Ok I'm stupid, I got pointed out in another forum that next page has close up of the controller. It appears it's not uP6225, thought. At least MSI AB does not recognize it even with detection override.
Nice review . Just came across knowledge of this gpu. Thinking of purchasing one of these.
You won't regret it; I sure don't!
I've recently purchased that card and due to it's weight it closed access to two SATA ports on GA-P55A-UD3 mobo. Is it normal or I should install something to let it be straight and not inclined.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. Case is HAF 922
I don't really understand what you're trying to ask? You can still use all of the SATA ports on your board. The two angled ports that the card covers when installed can be accessed with the card out of the system. Or you can just use the blue ports for your drives. The only reason you would want to use the white ports is if you are using a SATA III hard drive or SSD. Most likely you are using SATA II.
as you can see from the screenshot it covers two blue ports which are not SATA3, sure I can use other 4 ports without any problem.
My question was if it's normal for that card with such cooler to be inclined and not straight at, lets say, was my gtx 260 or any other 2 slot card.
Thanks in advance
It's a big card, so it's going to sag a bit. It has a backplate on it for rigidity, so I wouldn't worry about it. It's pretty normal for heavier cards to do that, especially if they don't have the cooler bolting into the backplate around the edges of the card (like your GTX 260 did).
thanks for the answer
i'm experiencing the same on my old old motherboard with 580 dcII
sata cables with 90° rotated connectors should fit in that case, there are also sata cables that have shorter, non-rotated connectors.
