MSI GTX580 Lightning is here! Time to get my Sli on!!(With pics)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Finally got my gtx 580 lightning yesterday,installed it with the asus gtx 580 Direct cuII with the cuII on the bottom and the lightning on the top.Its freking fantastic!!!!!Great space between cards,temps are great!More on that...anyway,heres the card!







The cards installed...from what i can see there is even a pci slot in between i could maybe use.







Just to explain the way i have set it up,there is a 140mm AND a 120mm fan in the front for intake pushing through to the big 200MM in the middle which is blowing cool air on the cards.Seems to be working quite well.Temps after an hour of playing games is mid 60s on both cards!!

Lets see if they will work




What you did wrong on the image is you chose properties on the non-full size photo. Go to each photo and click them again then use the properties. Or click on the link icon next to the photo and chose the dirrect link.
