- Base clocks match MSI GTX 580 Lightning.
- Software voltage control unlocked to 1212mv.

Is that memory overclock alright?
It improved my fps drops in bc2 dramatically. I used to dip below 50fps a few times during a game, now I never go below 55fps with vsync on... quite impressive.

Hi, and sorry for my bad grammar and english, ill try my best.

Some questions before i start the assembly of the stuff at home.

My plans are to run a SLI configuration with ASUS GTX580 Matrix Platinum cards in a Corsair 800D case.

My specs are.

ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme motherboard
CPU and motherboard watercooled.
6x120mm + 1x140mm fan pushing air IN on the case.
1x140mm pushing air OUT of the case

Will I run into issues with heat regarding the gfxcards? Meaning with there be enough airflow or will they be burning hot

Any feedback is welcome!

I dont know if it was mentioned in this thread at all but I was getting long delays after alt tabbing in and out of games, my fps would drop randomly, and GTA4 wouldn't even load.

Did a little research and apparently if you uninstall GamerOSD it goes away. The process messes with the cards ability to handle things because it handles recording/taking pictures of the games.

I uninstalled it and now i can snap in and out of games in milliseconds, gta4 loads quick and has awesome framerates, and i have no more framerate drops. My heaven score even went up!

All the reviews of this card on newegg seem to agree with me. DO NOT install GamerOSD!


What a crappy software to include with the card...lol

I wonder if MSI afterburner support overvolting on the GTX 580 Matrix yet, if so there's absolutely no reason to install that software it came with.

It doesn't support the other voltages (PLL and memory) or the fan control. Even the newest Afterburner beta version does not support it. The BIOS on the Matrix is not a standard 580 BIOS. The DirectCuII 580 BIOS is standard.

your fan config sounds a bit odd though...7 intakes and 1 exhaust? not sure that'll give you optimum airflow, might wanna turn a few intakes into exhausts

yeah, you should be fine to sli the matrix 580s, as long as you don't plan on getting a soundcard as well

EDIT: we have the same board, and i'm planning on getting a second 580 as well
