    Check this thread out before overvolting too much...a few people are having issues with their 570s being destroyed from overvolting. It seems the VRMs aren't quite up to the task.

    950+mhz on the core is doable at 1.1v using msi afterburner beta

    Ive got mine running mint at 825/1010/1650 @ stock voltage, though mine is Evga. Not really worth the risk overvolting it

    His 570 burned because he pumped Max volts and removed the power throttle thing. No shit its gonna burn out..just becareful if you overvolt

    Peeps need to stop messing with the power throttle...It's there for a reason obviously.

    If you are going to overvolt, don't go over 1.1v on the GTX570 cards. In fact I wouldn't go over 1.09v actually.

    W1zzard himself has reported killing a GTX570 with the throttling in place. Disabling the power throttling didn't cause these cards to die, and leaving it enabled doesn't help any. It might save the card during furmark, but it will just burn up doing normal tasks that aren't regulated by the throttle anyway.
