Rock on W1zzard, enjoy your new toy. :rockout: < qubit is green with envy > I wish there was a smiley for that. ;)

BTW my GTX 285 is a Zotac, too.

I wonder what the power consumption will be, probably about 580 under max stress for both?

So, when does your home version "nuke power plant" show up to power it? W1zz will soon be adding to the global warming problem. Bad W1zz. Killing kittens and puppies to run his new fermi. :shadedshu :laugh:

Foam? That seems kinda ghetto. I mean it will work fine but......foam? That looks like some kinda half ass mod I would do.

@W1zz: You said the new card you have is a different bios than the press release? Are the temps any better with this new bios?

I am told that the reason for the black foam is to ensure some spacing between the cards when running in SLI mode, so that they can breathe. It also acts as safeguard against short circuits which could happen when the metal cooler surface of one card touches the back of the other card.
Finally, something done right with this crap card.

I would have used rubber or something. That would be much better IMO. Foam just seems like "Man we built a badass video card that can run SLI and........DAMN IT if they touch they will fry! Quick cut off a piece of packing foam and give me some Elmer's glue. We got work to do!".

This would also explain why Fermi was 6 months late.

I think the user OUTSIDE's PC Case allows him to draw air for the video card outside of the case. Not bad.

for the record, i think the foam is a good idea that is cheap to add and easy to put on the cards

Yeah, if someone hadn't mentioned it, I would've assumed it was packing foam that somehow stuck to the card . . .


So, is the PSU squealing for mercy yet? :p

Some folks on the EVGA forums are receiving their 480/470s and posting benchmarks.

Overclocked 480 SLi is delivering 60FPS in Heaven v2 with 4xAA|16xAF and extreme tessellation @ 1920x1080.

I just wonder if the spacing problem could have been solved in a more professional way, perhaps? That foam looks like it is likely to degrade and fall off / break apart with time, especially with the high temperature it's gonna be exposed to all the time.

Perhaps a built-in spacer made of teflon or something would have been better? I mean the card costs enough to buy, so surely spending a tiny bit more to make it would be reasonable?

I would feel somewhat bothered that a cheap piece of foam is all that is stopping your expensive card for shorting out

I dont see how it would anyway. If you use an SLI cable it will force you to space your cards anyway. So I dont think it really matters if you have it in a little crooked. The second you add a second cards It will be spaced

I think a metal backplane like ATIs would do a better job, and act as a kinda heatsink, but I guess Nvidia want to ramp up profit margins and charge a bomb for there GPU and not force parters into extra costs on referance desighn's.
