Just installed 2 EVGA GTX 560 Ti SC's today and it's quite an improvement over the 2 EVGA GTX 260 core 216 SC's I was running.

Picked up a Zotac 580 Amp edition today out at microcenter for $430 which I thought was a great buy at the price. Anyone know what stock voltage overlclocking is like on these bad boys?

The stock voltages range from 1.0-1.025 from what I have seen. Some cards can go as high as 820 on the core clocks.

Hell this is already north of 810 so I guess I'll just leave it be lol. Thanks

*Edit*

Hell why not, decided to see what this could do with stock cooling and stock voltages. I have to say I think I got a very good chip. This Level 10 GT is also doing an astounding job of keeping this card cool under load.

Going to try it in the heaven bench and crysis as well to see if it's stable there as well.

Forgot I don't have Crysis installed since I bought this SSD and reformatted. It passed a few runs of unigine w/o issue. Just got finished with about an hour of Deus Ex: HR and it never topped 66 degrees, and it had no issues.

Loving this card!

I just recently bought a GTX 560 Ti and plan to get another one to SLI. I am upgrading from SLI GTS 450's and sold one already. I kept the other GTS 450 for PhysX.
