Yep, agreed with above. VRM temp is very iffy on the 680, I think it may depend on what board components are used - it doesn't work on my lightnings no matter what. I can definitely feel the heat coming from the card with a super high OC though lol, definitely can't be cozy for the VRM.

I've only paid $559 in the first place for it, so this ends up costing me as much as a reference at $509. I am still furious about the voltage MSI, but I am tired off sending malfunctioning cards back, and dealing with RMA's. In the end, even if gets no voltage, I am glad I have a working card, that runs extremely well.

I'd give a GTX 580 300$ tops used. If you're lucky.

Did they give you credit to buy something else or did they just refund your CC? Has anyone else had luck getting 50$ back through this process? I'd like 50$ biggrin.gif

I think a 580 Lightning Extreme could still command $300-$350 in the marketplace...

they gave me the choice of either a giftcard or direct refund to my credit card. I opted for the direct refund instead of the gc
