I think I may have at least one with the IHS removed. Even when my cards were sandwiched I never really saw temps like other people were saying you'd see sandwiching two 580s together on a tight board. My top card was never excessively hot and has NEVER seen over 82c under any circumstances, benching or not.

Same here. Running 925MHz on 3DMark 11 before only got the temps to 67c with 85% fans though. Bit loud but not as hot as I expected.

Hmmm... interesting. I remember we got our cards right around the same timeframe from EVGA too. When I took mine apart to install the waterblocks, thankfully, both of them had the IHS's on them. They had succeeding serial numbers so they should have come from the same batch.

You think maybe the one you got from Micro Center is the one without the IHS?

Did your Step Up card have a crap brown PCB like mine is? I remember saying in the GTX 500 thread that my Step Up card is devoid of any brand marking near the PCI-e fingers, but the second one says EVGA. I still don't know why.

If one if missing the IHS I believe it to be my top card, which yes, came from Microcenter.

I'm really not too keen on taking the heatsink off and I don't need to run water as I can't hear the cards over The Witcher 2 anyway.

Yep, my EVGA cards have the same brownish PCB. The Zotac, on the other hand, has a yellowish color, which I suppose fits their scheme. With the backplates on the EVGA's, it's not that noticeable, though, so I'll be picking up another one soon to cover up the Zotac as well.

I hear you on removing the stock heatsink - it's a complete pain in the arse as there are a ton of screws to remove.

Its actually not that bad. If you want to check it, you just removes the side screws that take off just the top half of the shroud, the fan and copper block will still be on. Then you just remove the 4 gpu screws. This way you don't have to remove the ten or however many screws there is on the bottom of the pcb.

There is a theory that the ones without the IHS have some torx screws on the card as well. My card did, but I've only seen one or two people confirm this so who knows if it will hold up. I'll report back what my new card has when it gets here as I am going to open it up right away.

Interesting.

When I had my GTX 570's, they had the torx screws on there, but the IHS was intact as I had removed the heatsink to redo the TIM. Maybe it's different with the 580's though, since my 580's (direct from EVGA) did come with regular screws and had the IHS as well.

Fuuuuu...

I just ordered this exact same setup as the OP.
Got the EVGA GTX 580 SC and a Koolance VID-NX580 on the way.

Guess I'll be popping the cooler off, and then I suspect I'll be contacting EVGA for a card with a heat spreader.

Damnit EVGA, why'd you have to go messing with things?

Better not tell my friend, he told me to go XFX, which my last few cards have been.

XFX doesn't make nvidia cards so I guess you were considering amd?

They are still selling cards with the IHS so you may be fine.

Yes, please do post pics!

I might be wrong, but it looks like you got spreader on.

Your rig looks amazing! Love the bridge.
