ASUS DirectCU / DirectCUII Owners Club - Page 28

post #271 of 1059
I'm exchanging my GTX 580 DCu2 for a Matrix GTX 580 today. Since it has the DCu2 cooler I guess it'll still qualify for this club. I'll post up pics of the unboxing tomorrow and also a pic in the case. Hoping to hit 1 GHz with it if I'm lucky and get a good one. My DCu2 maxed out at 950 but got way too hot for my taste and took too much voltage to get stable there. I'm glad I held off on sending in the rebate for the card, otherwise I wouldn't be able to exchange it! biggrin.gif

Matrix GTX 580 pics, unboxing and installed in the system. ASUS GPU-Z screen shot also.

The outside cover on the Matrix's cooler is a lot different than the standard 580 DCuII. This card does not flex near as much as the older card, and feels much more solidly put together. It also runs a little cooler and requires less vcore to reach certain speeds. I've only had it up to 900 so far. I'll continue testing it tomorrow.

for such a high end card it is a pitty that they didn't add more vram to it, but the price puts it very close to the 580 dc2, so can't really complain...for single monitor it should still handle most games with ease

That's a nice card Sheyster.

It wouldn't cost $529 if it had 3GB VRAM, probably be around $599 - $629. I have no plans to go multi-monitor anytime soon. I might upgrade to a Dell U2711, but that monitor has such a fine dot pitch that I won't need to use any AA at all. Everything looks great without it on that monitor!
