    It's damn nice! I really like the checker plate MoBo tray, looks industrial like. Plus it just doesnt look like your average square, open bench :pimp:

    But then again, you aren't the average square mod either :roll:

    :rockout:

    Not for reviews on the card itself, but one was given to me for review purposes. Unfortunately it did not come in retail packaging. The other I bought myself.

    Things are coming together, slowly, gonna have a big re-bench session real soon!

    Nice hardware, but those cards really do bend a lot. Needs some backplate with metal support like the new DCII models.

    The bend is pull from the power cables. I propped up the cables, and now there is no sag.

    After reading many reviews(Dave's mostly) I did it...traded all AMD hardware(except for the cards) for an I5 2500K + Z77X-UD5H pics below:
    Old hardware spread around:

    Nice trade! I am sure you wont regret it - intel is more powerful in most cases.

    I'm loving the rigs and I can't help get excited about them!! I'm gonna have issues with my fiancee if I'm not carefull!! :roll:

    I'm in need of some help guys... What should I do??

    I'm giving both i7's (920 @ 4.2Ghz, 6Gb of ram, the 580's and the water cooling to go with so motherboard and CPU as well) away to our son's and I have sat here (for the moment) a pair of 580's that I'd like to change at some point, 8Gb of Mushkin Blackline ram (I bought it cheap for my server rig and it worked fine) and a i7 2600k CPU that I'm told with do 5.2Ghz all day long..

    I've got my quad rad's still with fans and I'm looking to build it into a system for myself....

    Any suggestions would be amazing, cos I've got no clue at all!! :(

    One of my new GTX 680s was DOA :(

    I tried it in SLI along with three of my other 680s and it boots into Windows and allows me to install the driver, but as soon as I start any 3D application, it randomly freezes my PC and I have to reboot it.

    I also tried the card by itself on my main PC and it crashes Windows when installing the drivers, it won't boot either, unless I boot into safe mode.

    I tried it on my two other PCs and the results are the same, I tested each of my other 680s and they all boot without a problem, and load 3D applications.

    From all my tests I can only deduct that this is a hardware problem, as all my other cards work on my PCs without any problem.

    Just contacted EVGA, and they want me to send it back for an RMA... oh well, guess I'll have to wait a little longer to benchmark my rig :p
