Duel: GTX 580 SLI (Nyt_Ryda) vs GTX 570 SLI (El_Capitan)

Recommended Posts

Thx Merc.

 

Btw, these GTX 570's are amazing. I know Nyt's overclocked GTX 580's will beat me, but I don't think they'll be too far behind (and to think I paid overall $582 for them; $187 for the Palit, $275 for the MSI, and $120 for the full cover water block... not counting a re-used MCW80 universal water block). I'm just hoping my x8/x8 lanes isn't hindering the performance by much.

 

Agree'd! 570's are truly beastly! Overclock like champs!

I have 6 Kill-A-Watt meters. :P

 

What measurements would you want?

 

Btw, Paul, you should start a thread for measuring power consumption, much like Nyt did for various CPU temperatures.

Ugh, I get an error in 3D Mark Vantage. I hope it's not because I updated to the latest Nvidia drivers.

Are you sure it's not because you haven't posted one of your 6 kill-a-watt meters on the free to a good home thread and sent it to me :biggrin:

:biggrin: As soon as I close on my new house, and get settled in, I plan on getting one! There have been quite a few threads lately about the draw from the wall, and it really has me interested in what I'm pulling.

With all your set-ups, I think you may not want to know. ;)
