MSI AB only allows a max of 1.1V, If you want more you'll have to make a copy of the BIOS, edit it to allow more voltage and then flash the cards with the new BIOS.

*Warning*

I did the above with a pair of GTX570's under water, I pushed them to 1000Mhz Core @ 1.2V and they lastest 10 minutes, then one of them died due to a VRM module frying.

Not recommended!

really so what would you say would be a good clock anything i can get in the 1.1 range because watercooling should be able to handle that especially coolance

Depends how good your GTX570 chips are

Both of mine did 920Mhz Core @ 1.1V

Cooling isn't the issue, its the VRMs, standard GTX570's simply can't handle the voltage required to reach heavy overclocks.

I'm not sure if the SC versions have custom PCBs, You need cards that have 6+ Phase power designs, I think the ASUS Direct CU II's have this design but I'm not 100% sure, do some google-ing.

Yeah looks beast, 6+1 Power phase delivery :) 

Just make sure your waterblock fits it as its a non-reference card.

I will be watercooling my HD6970's, just waiting for paint to dry (seriously) I'll be posting a build log on Friday.

i still havent even set it up so im just gonna return the waterblocks and get ones that will fit on this one if there is any XD. Your not into 3d vision since they made that light boost technology now 3d is where its at. the 6970 cards are pretty legit but once you overclock them and something happens the video card will never be the same it happend first hand to me.

I have tried 3D vision and nVidia Surround, I really enjoyed the experience in racing games but hated it in FPS games. I prefer single monitor gaming.

I'm not planning on going nuts with the overclocks, not after the last time : /

Enjoy your cards, I hope you find some waterblocks for them :)
