That is the core with tim all over it.

Your card has the spreader just like a cpu.




I just got my card back from evga, popping the top off now.
I think you guys didn't understand me
The first pix with Tim has a spreader

The second one is mine whan I'm instuling
The EK block and it dos not have a spreader

No we do understand. But you are mistaken. That big square thing that looks like a cpu with an nvidia logo is the heat spreader. The one with the TIM on it is my pic, and that is just a bare core with tim on it.

Heres another pic I just took on my new card, this is without a heat spreader, that is a bare core with a support metal square thing around it.

So if anyone read the earlier posts this should probably confirm that EK blocks like others will not work without a spreader. Just so no one in this situation and thinks (from reading some posts in this thread) EK blocks would work without an IHS.

I've been in contact with an EVGA rep, Matt (his details are at the end of this post: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m...e=1&print=true )

He's been very helpful. Was able to check via my serial number to see if it's one of the new cards, and it is, so he's sending me a prepaid label to ship the card back to them and sending me a card with a heatspreader.

According to EVGA, they didn't change the reference design, nVidia did. So all new cards from all makers are probably going to now no longer have the heat spreader on them. Sounds like it's going to be a mess and this just might be the start of it. Might see aftermarket GPU cooling manufacturers have to release a new revision of their products for these new changes.

EVGA though has been very helpful so far. Very thankful for that. Matt is dealing with this directly to make sure I get the right card version to attach the water cooling block.

I'll remember to keep that HDMI adapter cable just in case I get a white box. And the pretty logo sticker.

Just to clear things up, GhostDog is confused.

Here is what it looks like without a heat spreader.



If you can see that green area with all the little connections, you are missing the larger heat spreader that goes on top of that and would give you the proper spacing for an aftermarket cooler or water block.

Even EVGA's own water blocks won't work with these new cards. They use the older version with the heat spreader on it. This is what EVGA said in the forums.

Thanks for the info. I've talked to multiple people at Evga and no one said anything about it being nvidia's fault. Strange. I guess we will find out soon enough if its a wide spread thing. I'm just glad they straightened me out and I can finally get this card under water.

WOW I wish I would have found this thread sooner. I'm basically stuck with this exact issue and now have a few hundred dollars tied up because of it. To make matters worse, EVGA is refusing to swap my cards (GTX 580 SC) for those with the IHS because I purchased them off EBAY (new, factory sealed and never registered). So now I basically can't water cool my cards. I have contacted a few manufacturers (Watercool EK, EK, etc.) inquiring if they each respectively have any plans to manufacture GPU blocks specifically for those cards which do not incorporate the IHS. I am still awaiting a response however. I suppose for now I am going to have to try to "mac guyver" it. I was wondering if someone could post for me the exact or nearly exact dimensions of the IHS? One I have the dimensions I'm going to try to fabricate a replica out of either aluminum or copper. Unless of course any of you have a better solution?

Extreme overclockers - rejoice! I see another 50MHz being squeezed out of our GPUs at -100°C

Regarding the missing IHS - EK is trying to find a bypass for this issue.

I just did some quick measurements and it seems if I can get an piece of metal approx 1 inch and 3/4" square by 2mm tall I think it should fit and perform exactly the same as the IHS. I'm going to look into having something made.

Any possible time frame? An announcement will be made?
