Me too. I'll probably never have an air cooled card again after this. I like the quiet.

The product must be returned to EVGA in the original factory configuration and condition. All aftermarket modification must be reversed before sending in the product for replacement.

You can put on any after market heat-sink you want, as long as when/if you RMA it, it has it's original heat-sink on it and it is not damaged by YOU. Just thought I would clear that up for you guys.

I guess it would be worth getting these if the following conditions are already met: 1) You didn't get a 680 yet, 2) you have a water-cooling setup already, 3) you plan on getting at least 3 since stock + auto fan is quite cool it seems, and/or 4) You live in a hot climate without air conditioning, or most importantly- 5) You simply can afford to spend more to get a completely silent card. I was just never bothered with 570 SLI fans, so, I don't know, fans haven't bothered me yet, can't even hear 'em with a game on anyways. I'll be water-cooling someday, and if the 780 actually has full voltage control then yeah EVGA is getting my (semi)hard-earned money the day it drops thumb.gif

Bought my 3 x Hydro Copper 580s shortly after they were announced, haven't had any trouble with them. Runs sub 30c idle, never much higher at load. The 580 blocks looked better than the 680 though. Luckily my 580s will hold me off until Maxwell.

I am a little surprised everyone is jumping on the Kepler GK104 when GK110 was rumoured to be out Summer.. way too close for your expensive hardware to lose its flagship status.

Sweet. I can manage that. It seems like a fair request by them.

I second the request for proof.gif

I am willing to bet large amounts of money that we won't see the GK110 until much, much later this year. It's definitely NOT going to be released this summer.
