Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

Im glad Asus finally dropped the Win 95/200 look.. they upgraded to GPU Tweak, which kinda looks like afterburner with a twist
And rather buggy well not too much but still.. Im hoping they'll work it out

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

Got the notion to repaste my GTX 570 GPU again. This will be the second time. Took it apart and the paste (Shin Etsu) was hard and caked on thick. I cleaned it off and put some Arctic Cooling MX-4 on there like I did my new EK water block. I am fixing to run Unigine Heaven Benchmark a couple of times to help settle the paste.

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

Ran EVGA OC Scanner which contains Furmark essentially for about 30min and hit a high of 70C with 75% fan speed. At idle my temps haven't changed much from before the repaste. I am still running around 40C at idle with a 40% fan speed. I do feel good about changing the paste over to MX-4 which is not as pasty as the Shin Etsu and I put the correct amount on this time.

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

EVGA Precision v2.1.2 (1-16-2012)
  • Updated EVGA Voltage Tuner:
    • Fixed bug preventing EVTune from applying settings at Windows startup
  • EVGA On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.3.1. New version gives you the following improvements:
    • Added new profile setting "Enable compatibility with modified Direct3D runtime libraries" allowing EVGA On-Screen Display Server to detect runtime function offsets dynamically on each 3D application startup. This provides On-Screen Display functionality support in applications using modified Direct3D runtime libraries (e.g. FXAA injection Direct3D runtimes)
    • Added new profile settings allowing you to limit the framerate during gaming. Limiting the framerate during gaming can help to reduce the power consumption as well as it can improve gaming experience due to removing unwanted microstutteing effect caused by framerate fluctuations
    • Added Vector 3D On-Screen Display rendering mode support for OpenGL applications
    • Added Raster 3D On-Screen Display rendering mode support for OpenGL applications using ARB shaders (e.g. ID Software's Rage)
  • Graph limits are now adjustable in the graph properties in "Monitoring" tab
  • Added unified vendor independent videomemory usage monitoring layer for graphics cards, having no generic videomemory monitoring interfaces implementation in display drivers. Unified videomemory usage monitoring layer is based upon original concepts of accessing Direct3D kernel mode thunk statistics under Windows Vista and Windows 7, introduced by Mark Russinovich in ProcessExplorer 15. By default unified videomemory usage monitoring path is enabled as a fallback path on NVIDIA graphics cards when generic NVAPI videomemory usage monitoring is not available (e.g. on NVIDIA graphics cards unattached to Windows desktop, such as dedicated PhysX or other GPGPU graphics cards). Power users may redefine unified and generic videomemory monitoring paths usage behaviors via the configuration file.

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

No prob. XJ, I have OC Scanner as well which is an OC test utility. Runs Furmark and I got to 78C with 850core clock after 15min. but no artifacts Nice to know what the old card can do. The EVGA SC 570 still goes for $345 minimum not includind shipping and tax. Not a bad investment at all.

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

Good deal! I like the reference design cooler better, it blows air through a copper finned vapor chamber.

Here's mine which is what I paid for it over a year ago.

The Classified is nice to but there were a lot of heat issues when it came out. Mine has no problem clocking past Classified speeds. I have a lovely card which I got as soon as they hit the floor.

Re: Evga gtx 570 sc

There is a new BIOS file for the EVGA GTX 570 SC and other EVGA cards. This BIOS boosted my idle fan speed back up to 40% min. I don't think it changed voltages (idle) but max might be higher. There are also other possible fixes in the new BIOS. Be wary flashing any video card.
