Will an AXP fit a 3GB 580?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if the AXP will fit a 3GB 580? I assume I'd have to get more RAM sinks but what about screws and such?

Thanks

I know a EK block that fits a reference GTX 580 1.5gb also fits the reference looking GTX 580 3gb version like the eVGA one.

So I'm going to assume the AXP will fit too.

If it's the 3Gb EVGA one then yes, IIRC they just use double density VRAM chips so it still has the same number of chips and they are all in the front. Unless I'm mistaken the 3Gb EVGA is physically identical to the reference 1.5Gb 580. Sorry about your card, better luck in the future, maybe go for a new card with warranty this time.

Yeah saw the deal and at the time was going to use it to sli, but sold my other card and now I'm lost for next steps.

Get a 3gb, get a 570. Maybe even go nuts and grab a 6970....

A folder considering an AMD GPU? Why for? Go with the best new single GPU you can afford from Nvidia and fold it to glorious victory.

I would imagine that a 3Gb 580 (like this exquisite example) would make you still feel the best about your purchase when the new Kepler GPus come out, because it will still be a powerhouse and have all the VRAM you could ever want for years. If you do have a little bit of buyers remorse when Kepler comes out, pick up another on the cheap for uber SLI when everybody else is jumping ship. That's my plan I just hope I'll be able to snag a 1.5Gb Lightning.

I haven't been folding for awhile actually :shameface:

Which ends up being like another $100 flushed. Grr

It's hard to talk about value when discussing GPUs this expensive but the Lightning X isn't actually a bad value for what you get IMO. Aren't regular EVGA 3Gbs like $600? So you get a waaaayyyy better card for the same price, or you could look at it as getting double the VRAM for only $70 more than my card.

This, most card makers are just switching the vram modules with 512mb ones instead of 256mb ones. But the pcb design should be the same as the reference ones for the EVGA and Zotac ones.
