Where does the MSI GTX 580 Lightning exhaust ? - Page 3

Yeah with heatsinks as abnormally big as the ones on the X58A-OC you shouldn't even worry about chipset temperatures.

And you are correct with your statement saying that you will need more exhaust than intake for that type of card. My cousin has a EVGA GTX 460 FTW with the center fan exhaust to case design and he had an intake blowing straight on the card and the thing would overheat on stock clocks every 10 mins! So we reversed the fan and made it exhaust and the thing runs flawlessly because we were feeding too much intake and not enough exhaust.

as long as there is sufficient airflow (800-1000RPM should be enough) you won't see any issues. Then again I've never worked with something as massive as the Little Devil V8 (little, HA)

Good luck man and remember if something isn't working out you still have the option to turn those 4 fans around to intake and see if that helps.
Yeah thank you

I hope I win the silicon lottery with this Lightning.
According to customers the Lightning has a higher probability of having a good chip than the DCII 580 because MSI is supposedly cherry picking more chips now.

And even if I get a bad chip I will have great voltage and power delivery capability to still get the clocks high

I am really glad I did not pull the trigger on the 6950 CF ...I was extremely close on buying them.

580 Lightning might be a little worse performing but the advantages of a single card are supreme.

And the resell value will also be much better for when I finally can get my hands on Kepler

When should Rep be given?
Reputation should be given to members who make posts that are beneficial to the forum and it’s membership. When you give rep, keep in mind that members with a high rep will be perceived as "top members" in the forum. Give rep wisely!

When should it NOT be given?
Reputation SHOULD NOT be given for matters of personal gain. This includes giving rep to friends for any reason, for gmail accounts or anything else that does not benefit the membership as a whole.

Reputation Etiquette
- Do not beg for rep.
- Do not hold grudges with rep. Give rep to ANYONE who posts something that deserves acknowledgement.
- Do not create multiple accounts to give rep to yourself. You will get caught.
- Do not give rep to a post of a member just because you like them. The POST itself should be worthy of the rep.
Someones avatar is not worthy of a rep...

Just making sure you knew the rules of the forums because its apparent that you are not familiar with them all. It is up to all members of this forum, not just the mods, to make sure this site runs according to all of the rules.

Did you have any problems fitting that lightning into your cm 690 ii adv case? e.g having to remove hdd bays or having to put it in your second pcie slot?
