    Without making too much noise, EVGA released a new custom-design graphics cards based on the GeForce GTX 580 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPUs; the EVGA GTX 580 DS SuperClocked and GTX 560 Ti DS SuperClocked. Both cards use a dual-fan ventilated cooler that makes use of a large, dense aluminum fin heatsink to which heat is fed by heat pipes. The GTX 580 DS SuperClocked comes with clock speeds of 797/1594/4050 MHz (core/CUDA cores/memory effective), while the GTX 560 Ti DS SC comes with 900/1800/4212 MHz speeds. Both cards also use custom design PCBs, the GTX 580 model uses a high-flow backplate. The GTX 560 Ti DS SC is priced at US $219, and the GTX 580 model at $519.

    they look good, I wonder how much better rear exhaust would be for the raven though.

    Nice that it comes with the high flow back plate, but does it come with an actual back plate on the back of the card?

    I saw this a few days ago. I really wish they would have had it when I bought my 560 Ti :( I wonder if there's some way I could get them to send me the new cooler lol

    They should put this new cooler on the 3GB 580 GTX that Evga now makes.

    Not lifetime, but 10 years is going to be plenty for most.

    That's a limited time promotion. If you don't purchase and register the card within a specific time-frame, then the standard 3-year warranty applies. I guess that's OK for most enthusiasts that will probably have upgraded at least once by that time anyways.

    that GTX560 Ti is fantastic! looks awesome IMO, would be cooler and quieter than stock (one would have to assume) and $219 is just a great price for a card of this caliber and a good non-reference design too.

    Maybe cooler, but not quieter. An EVGA rep said on their forums that it was about the same noise level. You gotta remember that the reference cooler is set to 30% fan speed so it's pretty quiet unless you crank it up to 100% manually (if I leave it "auto" it barely gets up to 40%).

    edit: reference for fan noise

    I'd still settle for cooler given the price of the card, and the factory overclock. having said that I'd love to see a review of it done. also i think the EVGA backplate would rock on a card like this. kinda reminds me of the old FX5900 cards from leadtek...

    just nicely encased in shroud and cooler, no need to look at the PCB really.

    Yeah, I would like the cooler from this card over the reference cooler just for the temps. I'm also curious what the noise level would be like at 100% fan speed compared to reference at 100%

    Wonder whats the use of a high flow back exhaust, when judging from the look of it, air would just bleed out the side.. and feed warm air back to the fans..
