quick question.. why are the 590's not very popular?
I think because they blew up when people overclocked them .....
You would assume that, yours being a Classified, would be made better.
This. Even small increases in voltage had rather bad effects.
Also 6990 seems better IMO if your going to buy something like that.
590s seem horribly overpriced down here I was considering one for an MATX build, but not now. I'll just wait for Kepler...
They removed the ability to up the voltage pretty early on.
I paid $715 for my EVGA Classified which comes with a factory overclock.
So, with that said, all my overclocks atm are with stock volts and just a modified fan profile as the nvidia one is absolutely terrible.. as in, at stock settings the fan only really kicks in at 80 degrees
P13666 - 2x GTX 580 SLI @ 1006/2260 - 1.213v - i7 2600k @ 5ghz - Gskill 6gb @ 1872 9-9-9-23 - Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3R - KiwInsane - Water
Got a bit bored xD
P9426 - Powercolor HD 7970 @ 1125/1575 stock volts - 2600K @ 4.2ghz - G.SKILL 11-11-11-30 @ 2133mhz - Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen 3 - DarkForceMage - air - Link

Not valid, tessellation is off, try again.

Getting lonely up here on the ATI Dual cards!
Might have to try for some single runs... seems to be where it's at atm!
