We finally get our hands on MSIs long awaited Lightning version of the already brilliant GTX580. Was it worth the wait?

IMO the MSI GPU's (FRZ) are always worth the wait

Did you need to bump the voltage to get that kind of OC? I am tempted to OC my Palit GTX580 because it has the palit's cooler with two cooling fans on it. I just dont know what voltages are needed to OC these cards. The default voltage on my card is 1.0v

every GPU is different, the point about overclocking is testing it to get the best out of your card.

So, one question ... what was the voltage to reach 960Mhz, can you specify? i'm really interested in this card... was going for the 590 but after the recent turn downs with the cards and VRM not being strong enough to hold overclock, i see my self going for a OC friend card.



Thanks
