I've had 2 sets of ram go bad in the last 8 months, and that caused everything from game freezing to an unstable desktop that would crash every couple minutes. It's only once I got some RAM that was rated for higher voltage (1.6V) that I finally stopped killing memory. In this case, it was a motherboard issue because I couldn't set the memory voltage below 1.6V, and the memory was rated for 1.5V.

Anyway, hope you get it figured out bud. Having to change out hardware constantly really sucks.
Not too long ago I stripped everything down, on rebuilding tested the ram, the CPU was running in low to mid 30s and never got too hot on load, invested in a stronger PSU to make sure that was covered. (Corsair AX1200).

Far as stability went the 6870s were fine, simply the driver issues that I wanted to get away from and have back the ability to create SLI profiles.

Got to say, the Palit SPs did get alot hotter than expected and thats just in Windows. Very strange.

Just have to see how it goes with the EVGA ones today otherwise im throwing in the towel. lol Take up fishing.

Tell me about it. Yesterday I went to the post office to send some stuff, important it had to go. Got soaked in the rain on the way there, got there and the place was closed due to "unforseen circumstances". One day in the year it was closed unexpectedly and it costs me. The package got soaked too on the walk back.

Now the crap with this PC, moving house shortly and thats gone wrong. Getting made redundant from my job. Just an incredible run of bad luck on a daily basis.

Now only EVGA can save me!!!!!! Please work cards, pleeeease.

Ok, both new cards are in. So far so good. Drivers installed, no errors as of yet. *Touchwood*

Temps of the top card a little on the high side, idle at 46C but the fan is only at 40%.

Bottom card idle at 38C which is ok.

The cards themselves feel alot more sturdy, the build quality is superior to the Palit Sonic Plats I had. They were kinda wobbly and flimsy. The EVGA ones are rock solid.

Not a religious man, but if there is a God I am adament he is testing my resolve and for to be more appreciative of the things I have. For a man on my intellect, I am punching far above my weight for all the good in my life. lol

If you are concerned with SLi temps, the Silverstone Raven cases have the motherboard mounted at a 90 degree angle so the heat rises to the top of the case for removal rather than into the card above it.

Nice score! What voltage are u using on GPUs?

My goal is to lower the voltage to run stock and lower temps/consumption.

Did a few tests @ 1.000v - 732/1900. Already did 772/1900 with 1.038 (VID).

I'm not sure what the voltages are tbh.

They are at the default values out of the box, EVGA 570 GTX Superclocked edition.

Voltages are not equal... each card has each own value.

You can check on MSI AB or GPUz.

Be careful when overclocking those cards with the power limiter off. They tend to die from the smallest of oc's.
