eughh i hate that your two gtx 570s come out with a better score than my two gtx 580's, I see you have them overclocked though, but doesnt seem like uve overclocked them muchOverall Score: P10700
Graphics Score: P11107
Physics Score: P10155
Combined Score: P8964
3DMark11. I got that RAM issue aswell telling me it was running at 667Mhz each, I was all like WTF! Also I clicked that health check thing and it seems to think my system is not running at top spec?!?!? Wierd.
Thats seems to suggest thweres something wrong with mine, considerin mine are 580s and lower ranking?Nah these are palit sonic platnium, they come factory overclocked. I think it would void warranty if i OC'd them. I did change them to reference speeds and scored 10300.
Withougt the sli bridge i dont get the option to sli, didnt think you could sli across the pcie lanes, games are running in surround so I know theyre sli'ng properly. I dont know about being downclockedand you're sure they're not downclocking? tried another SLI bridge? Could be teh bridge is dud and you're SLI'ing across teh 2x PCiex16 lanes (which is obviously slower)
Processor has a part to play in the scores I guess, mine is currently running at 4.8GHz. The cards were also clocked using EVGA Precision, not extreme though.I dont get how your two gtx 580's beat mnine by over 1000 on score?
It seems I was correct. At work connected OCZ 650W PSU, set 950clock and run 3dmark11/heaven few times and no crashes at all. Then tried 1000Mhz and that crashed half way through on 3dmark11. Due to fact was running out of lunch time, decided to set 980Mhz as a last try, it ran fine but could see quite a lot artefacts on the screen (strange glitches, black spots and flickering) so stopped the test before it finished and OC it down to normal settings.ps. GPU OC to 940core/1880shader/2135mem - stable, but any attempt to raise core clock to 950 gives me a 3d mark crash (same with unigine heaven), temps are below 60C so it's not that.
Could it be my OCZ 500W PSU is just not up to the job? I've seen a lot of people OC this gpu to 950+ without problems. So either it's my bad luck with card or ... what I suspect is PSU is on it's last breath to keep it going (mind you I have x6 fans in my case). What you think?
