1.3-1.35v is ok, its benchable @ -130, as long as the mosfets are actively cooled, otherwise mosfets burnout.

vivi, did you cool the mosfets with heatsinks?

Sorry to hear about your GPU

I never used AB for 580, instead I prefer using SmartDoctor, because I have always a lot of problems with AB

I stop using reference 580 when my Asus blew up during vantage tests @ 1.4v 1200 MHz GPU (two mosfets) so started using DCU2 Go for it! It's better a lot in my opinion

Me and junior-21 also lost a very good reference card while playing 3DMark 11 for the MOA Greek qualifiers @1360Mhz-1,45vgpu.A mosfet blow away.Hipro replaced it but it never came back to life.Since then we have been using DCII that can handle at least 1,6vgpu.
