Gigabyte GTX 560 Super Overclock Review



+ Add a Comment


I wish they would have included load temps.



I have an EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1461-KR that came @ 850 that I have running at 965 for several weeks without any stability or heat issues, I run it 24x7 doing varying things like GPU Grid and gaming.  I also ran EVGA's stress test utility for about 7 hours without any issues.  The card was half as big as my old 9800 GX2, and produces half as much heat. 



This card is excellent. First off, I have a mATX board and the SATA connectors are right in line with the PCIe slot. Therefore, any card longer than 8" will not fit. However, this card does NOT have a shroud and the fans do not go past the SATA connectors, so this card fits into my case without any issues.

It's quiet as well. I can't believe how much quieter it is over my old HD5750 that I had. And the performance is top notch, even on my 32" widescreen TV.

My only main complaint is that it has a mini-HDMI connector. This was a problem as I have a 25' HDMI cable that I used with my HD5750 to connect my PC to the TV while playing games. The HD5750 had normal HDMI connectors. Therefore, I had to purchase a gender changer so that I could hook up the GTX 560 to my TV. Not a HUGE issue, but still an issue none-the-less. They do include a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable, but it's only a few feet long, which is great if your PC is right next to your HDMI monitor/TV.

Other than that, this card is excellent. Definitely a good buy for the price. You definitely get more performance per buck with this card than you would with other lower budget cards.




I've owned this card for a while, and haven't had any problems with it.  Great value for the price. I just wish that Nvidia would put a DisplayPort connector on their cards like AMD.



I have a GB 460 OC, and it isn't a very stable card. The main culpret (from what I can tell) is the fact that the heatsink isn't making any contact to the memory modules like the stock coolers do (or they used to).



I have the same problem. I should've looked at the cooler more closely before buying it. Oh, well.
