Had mine for a while now (bought elsewhere-sorry NCIX)and this thing is beast. Only card on the market imo to compete with msi lightning extream cards. I modded mine to a Corsair H70 cpu watercooler while retaining the stock fans. I can reach 5000mem and 1017core o 53c....lol i know right! Looks fantastic, works fantastic, meant to be modded and great software inclucded. You can screw up the bios and just bring it back to stock by pressing a button. You can overvolt the card to 2.175v without mods or softwar hacks-feature of the card. It has a load indicator light on the side which can change color and a great backplate for looks.
First off, this card is incredible. If you have $600 kicking around and need something worthwhile to spend it on, this card is it. It's handled everything I throw at it with ease. Haven't ran too many benchmarks on it, but it never dropped under 100FPS in 3dmark06 (averaged much higher). Keep in mind this thing is HUGE, so make sure you have room in your case. Although the triple-slot design eats up space, it makes up for it in how quiet it is. No more wailing sounds of small fans winding up. Also, the GPUtweak tool makes OC'ing a breeze. Overall, this is the best graphics card I've owned and will be purchasing a second one for SLi. Oh, and did I mention it has glowing LED's that change colour depending on the load?
Will need to liquid cool anyway for optimum performance and slotting so the heat sinks are a bit of a waste but if you are planning on using only one card and no liquid cooling, this is definitely the way to go.
I bought this to replace my 580 DCU II. While it runs a little faster at factory clocks, I was hoping that it would overclock like crazy. It doesnt. You could save a bit of money and buy the DCU II version.
I could not be more pleased with this card. I had my doubts when I first purchased it, but after reading some more reviews and fiddling with the overclocking it has exceeded my expectations. I have it overclocked at 997MHz (5GHz Memory) with auto cooling and the card never breaks the 70 degree barrier under full load. I would take this card over any fan cooled GTX 580 out there. At max overclock it outperforms both the MSI Lightning [Max OC] and Lightning Xtreme Edition[Max OC] (links below) for a bit less than the Lightning and almost $100 less than the Xtreme.
THere are many GTX 580's out on the market at the moment and it makes choosing one very challenging so hopefully this helps someone.I bought this card about a month ago with gaming and folding in mind and so far this card has not let me down. I am running COD 4 promod at 250 fps stable, BFBC2 at 190 FPS, and it maxes out everything else I throw at it. I am running it on a 23'' 1920 by 1080 monitor and all settings a max on all the games mentioned. The cooling system that comes preinstalled on the card is amazing, the card runs idle at 29 degrees celsius with room temp being around 20 C. The only problem with this card is the fact that it takes up 3 slots, but that doesnt effect me becuase it is the PCI card I have at the moment. Overall I am very happy with the card and would recommend it to anyone, I may pick up a second one for SLI in the future if they will fit in my case.
