My ebay offer was accepted, so I reckon I'm IN on this one.

 

I was hoping to use my very good HD 7850, but ASUS TOP GTX 560 will do.

Did you manage to get a Top? I ended up with a DCUII OC and an EVGA DS SSC.

 

I wanted a Zotac AMP!, but I don't think they exist.

Well it was described as TOP, and the pictures looked like a TOP, and it costed me twice as much as the generic ones so it better be a TOP when it arrives 😂

There were tons of scam Tops on eBay that were OC's if you look at the sticker on the back of the card. Definitely let us know though.

Indeed and my ebay luck has been terrible this year with this sort of thing. If it turns out to be a scam then I'll probably just get one of the cheap generic ones that has software voltage control.

Card just got here. I immediately checked the back and it's a damn vanilla version and NOT TOP as advertised 🤬

You should've seen the Cheapaz discord channel, at least half of the guys got Ti's advertised as GTX 560's 😂
It sucks though...

What's crazy is this looks like a brand new card. I'm going to install it today and see what's up with it.

Well, a 560Ti isn't a bad thing to own. It just sucks that it's so hard to find the correct card. I always double check the pictures for stickers and other info, compare the PCB to the TecgPowerUp PCB pictures and if I'm not sure I'll request more info or proof.
Anyways, have fun with the card. I hope you'll find a GTX560 to play with.

On another note, I drilled holes in an RTX30 series bracket to fit the 51x61 hole spacing on the GTX560:

It looks like its still a 560 non-Ti, I think @damric was saying it was advertised as a Top model, but is in fact only an OC model DCUII, so probably overpayed for it.

Yeah the seller played dumb like he didn't know the difference but agreed to partial refund. I powered this card up today. Voltage caps at like 1130 or something weak and the clock speed barely made it over 1000MHz so blah.

I did some vBIOS modding to increase the voltage limit and I haven't decided if it's worth hard modding yet. Basstian will probably mod all 5 of his

Oh nice, you bought a 5th one for me? 😁

Yes, I modded 2 cards so far. On the ASUS DCII it's easy to solder an EVC2 onto the controller. Sadly mine is a turd and clocks like sh..

20230925_194849.thumb.jpg.fb7f8cc22b4556ece7e46e2ad21a095b.jpg

The controller is 7mm wide 😅

 

The Gainward, which I used for my current subs, has one of the worst controllers. OVP kicks in at 1.2v so I only have 1.199v to play with. It still did 1170mhz at that voltage at 30°C. Now I could try a VID mod, which is basically moving resistors between a high or low position. Each position is either a 0 or 1 which makes up the binary number for the final voltage. I've never done that and I'm not sure if I'm capable..

Since those subs I added a few caps to see if that helps my clocks a bit.

20231002_210650.thumb.jpg.4716061141153891a6a58bb5f3b8b4b2.jpg

Caps, measure points and 2x feedback mod.

 

As for the Gigabyte SOC, I didn't test that one yet besides on air (1070mhz). I'll try to get to that today if I feel like it. The pcb looks solid 👍🏻

20230928_180209.thumb.jpg.43b20b3840d393bf2282a21b4c83d034.jpg

 

The 4th one is not here yet, the person taking care of that is sick at home (as is the whole world around me as it seems like, including me..)

That should be the Zotac AMP! Edition.

Man that's lame. I need to get some time to throw my DCUII OC and my EVGA up on the bench and see what they do. So far from what I've heard from you and Basti, the DCUII's are a dud.
