May want to read that thread. I think the OEM paste is also used as a thick agent to push the head spreader onto the chip - and when you replace the paste, it spreads and doesn't hold everything as tight

thanks Keyan thumb.gif

i just had a closer inspection earlier at the heatsink on my 580, it didn't appear to be tightly in contact with the chip. specially around the edges there were visible gaps, i guess i will have to take it apart sometime and try to sort that out. i've however tightened the 4 springy screws that are holding the heatsink onto the chip, idle temps seem to have dropped a degree, lol

But which motherboards do you guys prefer for these 3-slot cards?

sli 2 triple slots...whichever motherboard that has 2 pci x16/x8 lanes that are 4 slots apart wink.gif for instance asus rampage iii extreme for 1366, or the asus maximus iv extreme for 1155. i'm a sucker asus fan, but i'm sure some high end gigabyte or other brands do pcie slots 4 lanes apart, you just have to do some digging tongue.gif

Asus GTX 550ti OCed from 975mhz to 1030mhz on air and stable at about 40-50'c full load

your screenshot is way too small, can't see anything in that gpuz window! your gpuz validation link is ok though, i'm guessing that's a 550ti top dc card you have there?

if you wanna be listed as a member with your 550ti, i need a pic of your card in your rig, cheers wink.gif

never had a a gigabyte card before, but what i can tell you is that, my 580 is set to auto fan at the moment, and at idle it's literally silent, can't hear it at all, and my case is just 2 feet from where i sit. during load it's pretty silent as well, you won't hear the fans at all while you're gaming.
so can't compare to the windforce, but i'm certain if you ended up getting the asus 580, you won't be disappointed with it's acoustics!
UPDATED! now overclock that beast and post back gpu-z! biggrin.gif
