    Please find 0.92v mod for 580m
    You can use EVGA Precision to overclock.

    Thanks barcode btw I got my 580's working. Reason was you know the plate below the video cards that you install to screw in the heatsink. It was shorting the video card somehow. I had to cover all metalic ends with thermal pad shifted a little and it fixed the issue with revisions, etc. How high can you overclock your cards to?

    Yes thats why when repasting gpu make sure those little plastic round rings very tiny around where you screw the gpu down are always there to prevent shorts.

    Anyway i can get upto 900mhz no problems, but cant fully finish testing with furmark or any other benching tests due to throttle, but no throttle experienced in games yet (so this is a good thing) lol

    standard volt 0.87v best to expect 740mhz no throttle or glitches or artifacts :0
    mod volt 0.92v upto 900mhz no problems :)

    Personally im running everything stock now and finding it more than enough

    good luck!

    Trust me tho its not really worth it.
    I was only doing this for bench results, but with this throttle it impossible.
    I would stick to your normal standard volt of 0.87v and if need be overclock to 724mhz 815mhz memory and this would be considered a safe overclock well within nvidias limts no throttle etc and you will have no problems all round.


    For the extra 1000 points in furmark or even what 3fps in games not really worth the trouble or malfunction which may be caused (dead graphic cards in due time perhaps)

    Opps forgot to mention i did request a lower volt mod to be done for eg 0.90v or even 0.89 still waiting to see if its possible. the lower the volts the more comfortable i'll feel.
