3 of 4 580 3gbs have arrived. Awaiting for blocks (tomorrow) and 4th 580 (possibly tomorrow or weekend).


EVGA Z77 FTW is still very buggy. I asked amazon for a replacement. At the same time, I ordered a Sniper.3 Z77. Prices went up at amazon and I didn't want to miss the lower price on the GB w/ a mir. I'm most likely gonna send back the EVGA if the Sniper.3 works out better. I asked a few Sniper.3 owners about its performance and its much better than the eVGA. Only a bit more expensive but with less headaches, its worth the price imho.



I'll post pics of my progress. I'm currently checking the gpu(s) to ensure their working fine.

I have also heard good things.. at the same time, they're kind of ugly..

I sold my two 590s and I got some good money for them. The 580s were a tad bit more expensive but it was a more viable option in terms of cost (including water cooling) rather then three or four 7970s. As I suspected, 580 3gbs came down in price as soon as the 7970 started scratching the $300 range.


I bough a new 580 3gb for $300 and three used ones (~6-9 months old) for ~$260.

Main motivator for upgraded was to get something with more vram. My 590s, though quad gpus, were hitting their vram wall easily on three screens.

This should be my last upgrade as the missus has put her foot down and will disapprove of more upgrades biggrin.gif/

The only thing that looks funny is the Board I/O for the Sniper 3.. The VGA / DVI kills it for me.. Although you dont really have to look at it..

From what i have read about it . it preforms quite well..

Good luck with the Quad Damage.. thumb.gif

Yeah, I agree, the i/o area is like wth.gif


Anyways, I'm waiting for the Sniper.3 to arrive. Looks like its next week for delivery frown.gif.




The EVGA mb is going back as its too buggy and unstable. What a shame...such wonderful specs and it sucks in real life. Besides a new mb, got a new psu as the Seasonic was gonna work hard for quad 580s. Still pending some water gear to equip the 580s.

I was wondering about that EVGA Z77. What problems did you run into?
