The temps are great, one of the reasons I got the Direct CU II card is because for SLI I know the top card runs hotter so I thought I'll get a card with a beefier cooler as the top card. During games the DC II hovers around 56-58 degrees @ 800/1600/1950 @ 1.038V while the Gigabyte GTX 570 is on average 2 degrees hotter at same clocks @ 1.013V.

Well, I'm on my SECOND Matrix 580 now. The first one developed an odd screen flicker, and it was also not a great overclocker. Here is the result of my exchange (see attachment). This is stable 15 minutes in Kombuster, 68 deg Cel. max temp with fans at 100% with the side of the case off. Needless to say, I AM VERY HAPPY.

Hot damn, the gtx570dcii is a cool card. It's roughly 10C cooler in idle than my previos first batch Sapphire HD6870
I've got it supported with the CM690IIA vga support (just next to side fan) and it doesn't seem to make any difference in temps

the dcii cooler is great indeed

i recently swapped my stock thermal paste with coollaboratory liquid metal pad, and idle temp from idle went form 35'c to 30'c with an ambient temp of about 27'c, pretty damn amazing i'd say

awesome speed, i'm a little scared to push my 580 any further than 900, maybe a year down the road i'll give 'towards 1ghz' a try

Hey guys so I own a 6870 DirectCU, and I need to upgrade my case. I was looking at the RV03 and FT02, but I've heard that DirectCU cards really mess with the thermals on rotated motherboard trays. Can anyone confirm/deny/shed some insight on this?

In addition, I want to crossfire the card with a second one. Am I better off buying another DirectCU card or will the manner in which the directcu cooler expels heat mess with the crossfire setup?
