ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II Edition - ASUS GTX570 DirectCU II Edition

"Well needless to say, I want to improve on the 10MHz overclock that ASUS ships stock. With such a massive cooling system and the voltage tweaking capability baked in, I have high hopes of success with this card. I began in earnest trying to find the upper limits of this chip. Opening up ASUS' bundled Smart Doctor utility with GPU-Z to verify settings, I set the fans to 100% and ran MSI's Kombustor utility to warm up the card and provide background stress as I push the card. I began moving up 10 MHz at a time, leaving the voltage at stock for now, allowing five minutes in between bumps to verify moderate stability. I continued doing this up to 865 MHz, where I finally crashed. I went back down to 860 MHz and let it burn in for 15 minutes with no errors and the GPU core sitting at a mere 62 degrees Celcius, I knew this was going to be fun. I nudged up the voltage and continued, swapping between voltage and clock speed as I went. I maxed out at a mind-numbing 925 MHz on the core at 1.1v and 988 on the DDR5 running at 80 degrees Celcius. This card's a spunky one, boys - that's nearly 200 MHz over reference speeds."

Business software left the office and moved into the home long ago. If you've ever lost the password to Word, ZIP or PDF file in misguided attempt to protect data from prying eyes, this guide to Decrypting Document and File Passwords is a life saver. PCSTATS Tips
