    Not sure yet, most i have used so far is 1.11v to get stable runs in Heaven and 3DMark11 @ 910/1820/2050 and the temps were pretty ok, i might have a go at trying to break the 1GHz if the card and temps seem to be doing ok.

    Btw, just noticed u have the Antec 1200 also, u put the 360 rad in the front ?
    1.163v for 1GHz is pretty nice.

    I have 2x240 rads comming and was gonna try get one in the front and the other at the back, maybe try and use the front plastic fan housings from 2 of the hdd cages and mount the rad behind them, can keep 1 full hdd cage with fan then and still just have room for a fan controller and dvd drive hopefully.
    Untill it all gets here i can't really say exactly how it's gonna work yet :)

    I had the same thoughts but the 240 Rad I was gonna get was too thick and with the 580 taking so much space there's no way. I was just gonna use zip tied and strap it together using the hdd holes.

    I like my evga 570 so far. At 1.1v I can do 950/2100 without any artifacts, but after reading the thread about bricked 570's I'm a little hesitant to do it again. I got greedy and locked up my system running Vantage, luckily no damage was done.
    Good card overall, very low temps/noise at stock speeds, even when overclocked it never goes above 67 on air. (with fan at max, which in this case is limited to 85%)

    Hey man you should check out the EVGA Fan unlocker if you'd like your fan to ramp past 85% of its max RPM.

    EVGA GTX 570 Fanspeed Unlocker v1.0 Released

    The tool basically flashes your card while inside Windows. I don't ever like flashing components while inside Windows but it worked no problem. It won't void your warranty with EVGA either.

    I wonder if the reference 570's from other AIB partners are limited to 85% :confused:

    Thanks for the link Ross! Does anyone know what brands of 570's are failing the most? I would like to think EVGA uses better components than other companies, but thats just my own wishful thinking. I find it strange that they would provide you with EVGA E-leet to overvolt your card when it could possibly ruin it. Because man, this thing wants to go!

    The reference cards essentially are all coming from the same source. With that said, most cards made by different brands have the exact same components, they just have a different sticker slapped on the card.

    I'm not saying there isn't a difference in brands, there definitely is. You can buy the same reference card from 2 different brands but what differs mainly is how the companies handle RMA's and how well their support is.

    Each brands also comes with their own qa methods for oem cards as well afaik. Thus the difference in their return rates.

    Not much difference..
    I have been using koolance water blocks for a couple years so I am just used to their quality.
    I have recently started using EK blocks and can say that I like them as well.

    Either will do what you need it to do:)
