Awesome. So your going to get a 580 then? maybe I can qualify for one too lol. I have had 2 RMA's that caused my time with the card to be limited so maybe they will do it out of the kindness of their hearts lol. Tis the season after all ... well almost the season lol. I wonder how well a 580 folds.


no you wouldn't lose both cards lol. I have heard that it's harder to get 2 cards to as high of an OC but i guess it's doable. It makes sense that it would be difficult though. If you think about it, both cards are different. One card may be able to get to 50 MHz higher than the other and in that case I think that you would most likely be stuck with the lower OC as the OC for both.

As for folding I do see much more PPD running higher. The only thing that matters for folding is the Shader clock though. Raising anything else will just raise temps on your card but give you no gain in PPD. But since the Fermi cards have the core and shaders locked together, you are stuck having the shader clock being double what the core clock is. I will look into the "Max Safe" specs for your cards so that when you get in touch with me I can assist you to pushing them farther. Take note of how many PPD you get right now and then again after wards to compare.

Yea I have only had my card for 60 days so I was eligible for the stepup. When did you purchase your card originally? Depending on how long ago your step up expired, they might be willing to give you and extension. I have seen several people in another thread saying they missed the launch date by 2 or 3 weeks but evga still let them sign up.

Well I bought it back in July but my card has been in the mail and at eVGA for a total of over a month. so that would put me at 3 months this month. I might call them and ask especially since I bought my card for $509 so the difference wouldn't be that much. I think I'm going to call them tomorrow.... or tonight since they have 24 hour support lol.

Do it man, the step up price is $499 so all you will have to pay is the ~$7 for shipping.

Edit: I see you have the SC edition, you will only be able to get the reference version. But hey its still gonna be better.

That's simply just unacceptable Capt'n... I think that we'll have to have you walk the plank for this one...

Guys click on the "I need a new case" Contest link in my sig. It's a contest for a very nice case that goes to one individual that deserves it from there contributions to OCN and other members. It isn't for the person that needs the case the most but to whom deserves it the most. Why don't you guys go over there and enter. Make sure to follow the instructions very carefully because you cannot edit your post and if you do it wrong then you are disqualified. Above all you must have your post start with [entry\\] ok? Good luck guys.

sorry for the double post but I am writing this from my cell phone. The reasoned that I have to write this on my cell phone is becauwe we were supposed to get 3 Inches of show today but we had already Haf that much before noon. We endedup with a blizzard. Not sure how much snow (at least 8 inches) but the 40 mile/hr winds don't help much. So to make a long story.... well not as long, my power went out at 5 pm or so and hasn't been on since. Not Iust my power but my ejtires county's power is down. Sorry to let u guys down. I'll update when it's back up and running good. Oh and one last thing.... IT'S FREAKING COLD OUTSIDE. Highs in the high 20's and lows well below freezing. Especially with the wind chill. It sure would he nice to have power to run our heater or cook some food. Someone buy me a generator and a few more GTX 480's to heat my house with lol. Fingers hurt from cold + typing so much on my phone. Need to buy the android forum app. Good night all
