480gtx full cover block fit a 580?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm currently selling my 480 ($220) in the for sale section, and upgrading to a 580, will my block from the 480 fit the 580? I heard it's possible with some thicker pads for mem?

I found this: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=680742&mpage=1
But first impression is positive, i guess you will be fine with 480 block on a 580

The only difference between a reference 480 and a reference 580 is the height of some of the memory chips - get some slightly thicker thermal pads and you should be good to go. many users upgraded from the 480 to the 580 and just kept their blocks.

yup fit like a charm, just added a some thicker pads to the memory. I'm currently running 950/2200. I can bench vantage at 970/2300 but if I try and play arma 2 or bfbc2 I'll get a grey screen and crash. Is it possible to flash to get more volts to the core?

I'm mildly surprised I was under the impression the 580's were longer pcb than the 480's and might have shifted mount points and such (I say this because I had a GTX570 that was exact same length as my 480's)
