Just don't go too crazy on mass overvolting and it would be a stellar upgrade to what you have now. thumb.gif

This, the 590s don't have the strongest voltage regulators for overclocking.

Its awesome card. i had two running in quad sli last year. One should be a beast for a single 1080 monitor.

-Sounds like its an oem Nvidia GTX 590 (non AIB) so its like getting it from Nvidia directly (which is what oem's do).

-Performance should be somewhere between sli 570s and sli 580s

-1.5gb of usable vram

-Be careful with oc'ing. I kept both of mine at stock. If you do plan to overclock, make sure you reach out to the club and owners. These guys are not two 580s exactly, hence why Nvidia has locked the voltage on them. Most oc's are very mild to medium. Don't expect 580 overclocking potential.

-Make sure you have a 2.0 16x slot available on your mb.

-A good quality psu around 550-650w (or more) would be fine.

-Noise is a bit laud but respectable, add some additional air or consider wc it smile.gif


Have fun with this sweet score! You can always sell it for a bit of profit and buy something else. I see these still sell strong on ebay since they're a bit exclusive. Since its an oem card, there's no warranty so be careful and have fun thumb.gif

Your mb does 3.0 but your SB cpu (like mine) doesn't support it. But, it should switch to 16x 2.0 which is fine (top full pcie slot per Asrock). Just make sure you don't populate anything in the second full 16x slot or it will switch both to 8x/8x.

yeah, that's why i got this board incase i decide to go to ivy bridge one day, and what are the main issues with this card? he is able to load up windows and stuff like that without any issues, i just wanna make sure once i start using it, it won't crap out. do these cards die easily?
