KFA2 GTX570 Review

Test Setup and Overclocking

KFA2 GTX570 Review

Test Setup

As always with our GPU reviews we're running the Core i7 950 @ 4GHz to make sure we've got sufficient oomph to keep things going smoothly.

KFA² GTX570
ForceWare 275.33
Intel Core-i7 950 @ 4GHz
Gigabyte G1 Assassin
Corsair AX1200W
6GB Mushkin Redline
Noctua NH-D14
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Overclocking

The KFA² overclocks very well managing to hit a very good 860MHz completely stable without any voltage tweaks. Almost more impressive still is how well the cooler manages to keep on top of things. The reference 5 series cooler from nVidia is no slouch, but the KFA² is amazingly even quieter and cooler. It's a majestic bit of kit.

The way that fan lifts up is "genius". If I had a pure gaming rig I'd deffo put one of these in there.

I wish you could run 3 monitors off of a single nVidia gpu Quote

Awesome review TTL. I'm loving how easy it is to clean the fan. The card itself looks the dog's danglies as you say and would be a brill edition to any blue themed build.Quote

I really can't understand why the 570's have been taken off

the spotlight recently because they offer excellent performance for their

price.

Great review but im struggling to see how the card is kicking the crossfired 6770's on Crysis 2 @ 1920x1080 dx11 hi res, I appreciate its overclocked but i just cant see it giving 10+ fps better average performance,

Honestly not flaming/trying to argue but it just seems wrong *shrugs*
