i wouldnt want one .. using a asus 580 direct cu ii and extremely happy with it
me. terribly power inefficient. too loud.
I would dislike having one, especially for the price difference here in my country, I would rather spend the money on 2x 580's.
Well, you don't deserve one as you went and broke your new toy. You'll have to save up your pocket money for another one now.
this is w1zzard. he has BOXES of spare video cards.
I can imagine, hehe. I'll bet it's a right alladin's cave there. Just imagine the hord of classic and unusual cards that must be there. < envy >
IIRC, he bins them once they reach a certain age, or gives them away.
Maybe W1zzard should have a competition every now and again to relieve himself of all his "junk"
i've suggested it, but his lordliness is a very busy man.
shall we get back on topic now, of... well, nvidia failing, nvidiots fanboy hatin, ati fanboys lolin, etc etc.
Just wanted to say that I really have the term nvidiots. What's wrong with "fanboy"? It's like people using the term M$ or something, it's just stupid imo.
I would rather have a 580 by FAR. No SLI issues and no risk. Plus the current state of PC gaming is nothing but ports. 6990 and 590 are a waste of money.
I'm going to use the term "Nvidiot" strictly in your honor Frick.
It is mainly used by trolls or fanboys of the AMD/ATi camp. I just wish people looked at things more objectively rather than all the bullshit drama. Those that lack intellect will fill the void with emotion.
Power consumption isn't an issue for those of us with really cheap power rates like I have. Therefore an option to turn off all power throttling would be great on all new Nvidia and AMD offerings. That way higher OC's will be more stable with adequate cooling. Except a design like a 590 when overvolting, but I had no intention of doing that.
I guess W1zz is a troll/fanboy because I've heard him say it before. "Nvidiot" is a term for people who blindly buy anything Nvidia without ever looking at the facts. OMGWTFBBQ NVIDIA FTW!
Forum owners can troll. It is his forum. He made some comment about badaboom and porn on a bus too. You have done your share of trollin good man.
Now I drive to work.
and that's why, out of like 100 cards i could use, i picked an nvidia card for my work pc ? clearly ati fanboy
first cases of retail cards blowing up - zotac gtx 590 that is, at stock everything in a well vented machine , running 3dmark 11 - lulz then when nv actually do the 3dm challenge
clocks at 650mhz on stock volts and it blew
well holy shit
that it is but it still looks stupid.
Your logic. IT BURNS! I mean of course. You didn't give the 590 an 11 score even tho it blew up in your rig. Clearly you are a AMD fanboy.
Ok now it blows at stock volts?!? lol FAIL! But this is an isolated incident correct?
Well that is fail. I would like to know more about it though. Couldn't have been the PSU or something as well?
(i'm not trying to sound like a fanboy, but a card that blows on stock settings is not common and it should be looked into deeper)
Yes, he seems to be the only consumer case i have seen that has had that happen.
Well a few others have been listed also earlier in this thread.
Fail card this is
"there is no worst blind that the one who doesn't want to see"
Ive only seen mainly cases from reviewers, and only that one from a mainstream user. (ahh, didn't see the link you posted nvm. lol)
Personally, i wouldn't worry about it, i honestly don't think this is much of a mainstream problem.
Who knows. Time will tell. All I know is if I had a choice right now it would be a 580 or a 6970.
It's seeming to be a bigger issue then i thought.
