Default Re: GeForce GTX 590 Review Thread

TweakTown article about why some of the GTX 590 have gone up in smoke.
Quote:
Some websites have said the issue is isolated to the ForceWare 267.52 drivers, but this isn't true as we only tested on the FW 267.71 driver and ours did die as well when overclocking.

So, there's a few things to note :-

- Do Not increase voltage above 1.05v, even if the option is there to go higher. We've only heard as high as 1.000v has been tested.


- Ideally NVIDIA would prefer you don't increase voltage at all on reference cooling, but have recommended no higher than .963v.


- This doesn't reflect all NVIDIA GTX 590 products, nor the quality. Throwing almost +300mv on any card with air cooling will more than likely compromise the card's health.


- The issue doesn't seem to be related to any particular driver release.


- Do Not increase voltage above 1.05v, even if the option is there to go higher. We've only heard as high as 1.000v has been tested.


If we find some more information we'll update you further, but I think we've covered just about everything.
