    well then the bottle neck only exist in someones mind as long your sustained frame rates don't drop below 32fps. Really if you oced that 5200+ a bit more that would help aswell. At 3.0ghz which it will do no problem, you really won't have one .

    Had it running 2.86GHz stable a year or so ago but i'll not be bothering now as my i7 950 should be here soon.

    okay but your AMD board is a legendary overclocker. I had it and had a near world record overclock on a 6000+ Windsor at 3.6ghz way back in the day. Up your north bridge voltage 1.35 and CPU vid to N/B vid 1.375 and it will fly. This would really help you gtx 580 for now.

    Okay here it is

    I have owned 3 gtx 480 and now this gtx 580 and they are all great cards but the boys at geforce scammed us a bit. Once you remove the voltage protection all these gtx 580 are, are gtx 480 with the extra cores enabled. All this BS about better power usage is that BS, once you remove the voltage protection. It does have a bit better cooler and it will overclock slightly higher but trust me if they had put the same voltage protection and cooler on a gtx 480 there would be zero difference. Even as it is I'm not seeing much difference in performance maybe 5 frames per second and my AMD chip at 4.3ghz isn't bottlenecking this chip. I'm seeing maybe 10c temp defferences under extreme load but the gtx 480 can take that so is that really an issue. Plus with W1zzards voltage protection removal command and a bit of overclocking the GTX580 rapidly approaches the GTX480 thermal envelope. Before you guys get your panties in a bunch this is a great card and I do like it but it isn't truly what Nvidia is telling you it is. All it is, is a gtx480 with a voltage regulator/temp sensor and a bit better cooler. Still there was nothing wrong with the GTX480 to begin with so any improvement is a good one. If you own a GTX480 this is not a true upgrade, and I don't think it's worth the extra 100.00 to 150.00 depending on new or used. Buy a AXP or Zalman after market coolers and keep what you have. With those after market coolers the gtx 480 will run about 30c cooler under load than a stock cooled gtx 580 and be even quieter. Plus it will over clocks just as well or near so. Love you guys but I calls them as I sees them. :laugh: Okay blast away!!!

    Yup. :p

    Anyways, got my backplate and high-flow bracket. These plus some new thermal paste I got a 10c drop. If anyone is planning on getting the backplate you need a Torx T-6 bit for the screws.

    Card looks great with the backplate and hi flow cover, also, nice temp reduction. I gotta ask though, why doesn't EVGA just sell the 580 that way off the bat? Charge another $30 and call it a day.

    e whats your maxed closed case temps on air under load, like occt with default fan? Before you put on the backplate and flow bracket. Or anyone else for that matter, no one tests in a closed case anymore.

    Don't know, my case doesn't close and all of my fans are intakes.

    You figure out the shipping from the US to your country and send me the money for shipping + $30 dollars to my PayPal. Just send me a PM. ;)

    Tried 900/1800/2100 on the stock SC volts and all went pretty well but got what might have been artifacts in heaven, couple of flashes of a red star like thing, anyway got it on 895/1790/2100 now and seems to be fine.

    Edit: Sneaked up to 897/1794/2110, 100MHz over the stock SC clocks @ stock SC volts.

    Got my GTX 570 (Poor man's GTX 480) on Thursday and figured out late Friday afternoon that my Swiftech MCW80 GPU block will not work with it (unless you mod the stock VRM/Memory plate on the GTX 570 when using the G80 adapter kit). It's a bummer but it does give me a reason to upgrade to a full cover block :cool:

    Anyone got any recommendations on a full cover block for the GTX 570 ?

    (Damnit I just realized that I reset CMOS earlier on my system and forgot to re-load my BIOS profile! The above screenshot and benchmark run were done with my motherboard on optimized defaults... whoops. I'm gonna post back with new results soon.)


    I've been having the gaming blues these past two days so I'm gonna satisfy that before starting to see this card's limits. I'll post back with some more results.

    I feel cheated when something is DOA or dies soon after I have bought it. But thats about all. BTW I was thinking of GTX 5xx series but I just decided two 480's would fit me better so another one at a little less than $300 is on its way. I would like a 580 but I can't justify the cost. :(


    You both need to make sure whoever you do business with has heatware BTW. ;)

    I think erocker is willing to help you guys :D

    I just ran 3D Mark 11 on one of my rock stable BIOS profiles. My Q9550 is only at 3.4 Ghz for right now, but I'm running the stock VID with this CPU (1.2875v VID - kinda high for an E0 C2Q, but I'm happy with a +567 Mhz OC at stock vcore).

    Does anybody have a Kill-a-watt meter that is running 570/580 in SLI that want to share the draw from the wall?
