What 3GB GTX 580? EVGA OR MSI? - Page 2

post #11 of 35
The Msi is almost silent even running at 100% fan speed. Than again I can't hear it over the 12 fans I have running lol

MSI FTW!!!

Edit: Msi also has outstanding customer support.

Thanks alot guys. Im thinking about going sli eventually but i will be comparing with kepler by the time i consider it so i may or may not....depends how kepler performs!

My mobo and case is as in my sig so i dont think i will have any issues with airflow or space. I liking the MSI atm. Just want to ask though, is it already slighlty OC when bought?

Ive just watched a video and saw that the power connectors are 2x 8 pin? I thought it was 1x 8 pin and 1x 6 pin...maybe thats the 1.5GB 580? Thats aweome though as my current card is 2x 8 pin so i dont have to flaf aabout with the psu connectors. Just simple swap

Lightning Xtreme is a 3GB card too. The regular Lightning is 1.5GB.

Most of the non-reference cards are 2x 8 pin.

You should be fine with the HAF 932, it is similar to the HAF-X that I run with no issues. Yes, the Lightning comes overclocked from the factory and it is very easy to overclock more if you so desire.

There are also Palit and Zotac 3gb cards, if you were after more of a choice.

As someone who has owned 5 EVGA cards, and 3 evga mobo's my vote goes to MSI due to evga's quality control. Ive had 2 DOA cards, 1 DOA mobo, and my GTX580 only lasted 6 months. Granted their rma department took them every time for a exchange, but ive always had to pay shipping and wait a week for something that shoun't have happened in the first place and ive begged them for them to send me shipping labels.
