post #11 of 16
Are you keeping your 18" display? It would be nice to get a bigger one since you got a GTX 580.

I have a 22'' one as well, but I prefer the 18'' one xD

BTW, I just noticed there are lights on the PCB of my GTX 580. What exactly do that they mean?

I can't seem to find anything about it in the documents that came with the card.

I found this from Guru3D:
"The new cooler allows high clocks with low volume levels AND keeps the card pretty darn cool. That's definitely a win. Then MSI added stuff, little micros-witches with features for the pro-overclockers, a second BIOS, phase LEDs, voltage monitoring points and a factory overclock."

I'm reading the review and it mentions that there's 12 power phase, but what exactly does that mean?

I noticed when I boot up, half the LEDs are green. The other half are red.

I would guess the red ones are the ones not used. Try to overclock it and see if some more lit up.
