ASUS' new GeForce GTX 580 DC2 uses a massive triple slot Direct CU II heatsink that increases cooling performance significantly. As a result the card is extremely quiet in both idle and load - quieter than many midrange cards. ASUS has also increased the operating clocks of their design, all this for a small price increase of $5.

Me too, my reference one gets to 940Mhz
Mine unfortunately doesn't. I think it's difficult to judge the overclocking capability of a series of cards based off of a review, especially with a large GPU such as this one. Wafers are only so big, so you'll have some good and some not so good. Looking at the temperatures this particular GPU could just have a lot a leakage.

Same card used to get 1.5Ghz on LN2:

So I'd take that oc results with a grain of salt.
Wizards OC result are the stablest of stable. If I recall correctly, he has this suite of testing methodology which squeezes out the most stablest OC one could get. Sure you can get 900+ Mhz on the core, well so do I (I can bench with it and thats that. Good luck to me trying to play Crysis at 900+ without crashing.)

24/7 realistic stable maximum OC (In all kind of scenarios) is what matters and not just the 'maximum OC'. This is one of the things that makes Wiz' reviews unique from all others.

the oc potential depends on luck. mine is perfect stable at 920, but i have a friend who cranks it up to 1ghz and plays crysis with no crashes :). anyway this is one bad card

as i said, i am quite sure that i received a card that just doesnt overclock well. the typical number i hear is 920 for this card.

shamino's 1.5 ghz overclock was done on LN2 with extensive mods and shamino is one of the best people world wide when it comes to this stuff.

Also he modded the card circuits. But this isn't an excuse i bet one can't replace a card due to not OCing well

Two questions! Would a three way sli board like asus rampage III formula fit two in sli? And since it consumes less power than the reference model, I assume the corsair ax850 will power two in sli, right?

I'm always expecting Nvidia to release something to surpass the competitor's 5970 performance. It's a tad disappointing to see such a massive card (triple slot cooler) and yet it's less efficient than a dual slot card...

but, considering no reference models of gtx 580, asus is the best option i think, or not?

in my opinion asus direct cu is the far better card between these two because it has custom pcb and 2x8 pins. they both run cool but asus has a better pcb. at the end of the day it depends on your luck since neither of them is binned
