Incorrect...It can occur with ALL reference 590's.

They actually used very expensive VRM's, improperly if you really want to get into that debate and they don't just randomly 'go up in smoke'...It's user error that fries them, period.

That said, there are two revisions of the 590, the '501' and '502' (this is printed on the PCB). The very first 590s tagged '501' were popping. So far on the '502' revision, only people pushing voltage past (IIRC) 1.063v are blowing their cards, unless they genuinely have a faulty unit - which shouldn't present a problem as you could just RMA it for a replacement.
501's were/are overstock of samples...There are not 2 different versions, just 2 batches of the same version that were released...Both are the same EXACT cards, nothing changed between them, they simply switched production lines and thus had to designate so.

Nvidia released a press release to ALL reviewers...It was said that no REVIEWER should take the card above 1.05 because of the fluctuation between the core 1 and core 2 voltages.

Sweclockers and OTHER reviewers did not heed the press release nor did they follow it's warnings.

The cards 'blowing up', 'frying' etc, were purely due to the fact that the reviewers, IMO, don't know how to read a press release that was sent to their email boxes IMMEDIATELY after the sample was released. (I'd know, we have 4 samples still to this day in immaculate condition and 1 day before we got the sample, 3 emails, 3 the day we received it).

So, in English, unless you're stupid or ignorant, or by an act of god, will you have a problem with this card frying.

That's comforting.

Would a 850watt psu do for this and a 2500k?

Yes, that would be more than enough. Overkill actually.

You could probably swing 2 580's in SLI with it, IF it's quality and has a good rail.

Thanks for that - I thought there were two versions! I read that NVIDIA claimed the cards were frying due to a fault on the original run of cards sent to reviewers etc and that the retail cards were different and more robust (which I assumed was the 502).

It would seem then, that NVIDIA told a porkie!

IIRC, the VRMs were good. They just didn't use enough.
