So far the 580 far surpasses my GTX 275's I had previously.

And thanks for all the help, I like this afterburner program more then the EVGA Precision.
No problem. Glad to help.

And yeah, this place has this mystical spell on people. Before joining here, I had no interest, whatsoever, in spending so much money on this hobby. Thousands of dollars later, I'm still left with yearning more and more and going every which direction to make my setup even more personalized. So many beautiful setups that have inspired me on this site, but not enough time and money to make all those ideas happen on my own.

In curiosity was just testing my EVGA GTX 580 BO (1.088V stock VID) how low volts it would run games etc.. Used reference clocks 772mhz Core and 2004mhz mem with 1.025v and it flew through games + 3Dmark11. So i went little further... So far games runs flawlessly with 825 core / 2100 mem with just 1.025v Has EVGA even tested these cards what voltage they run? Yes i know below 1.1v is perfectly safe (maybe they just slapped that 1.088v).

Anyway seems that i have pretty nice card. As for max clocks.. i have runned 1.1v 930 core / 2150 mem which are rock solid. Card can do with the "stock" 1.088v 900 core / 2150 mem.

Got my Accelero Extreme Plus aswell waiting, but the sucker wont fit into my Antec 300 (yes dont laugh, still very nice aircooling case with filters removed ). Still waiting Fractal Arc to arrive to my local store .

My card runs with a 1000mv default @ 810 and 2016. I can bump that up to 820. I get 910/2170 @ 1075mv. AXP is incredible. I can't speak enough superlatatives about this cooler .

Interesting update. 3% difference overall performance. I'll assume the GTX 580 was a reference 1.5Gb card vs the Lightning 3Gb non-reference.

I have a question to the club.

Can a GTX 580 SC be SLI'd with a GTX 580 vanilla card? If it can which I'm assuming it can, should one be the top card over the other? Any down side to this mix in SLI?

I keep a modest gaming OC of 13% on air at 875 Core / 1111 Memory / 1750 Shader at 1.075v. I know the vanilla can reach that OC.

That ASUS DirectCU is one biiiig mother of a card - 3 slots wide! Not ideal if you have a small board and want to SLI in the future. The MSI lightning has had generally good reviews all round

MSI GTX 580 Lightning non-reference card is a great choice, if your looking to spend a little less EVGA GTX 580 vanilla flavor reference card will be just as good.

The ASUS DCUII card takes up 3 slots and is a very wide card, I wouldn't get it unless you don't plan on ever getting a second card to SLI with and don't mind closing that door option.

Getting back to the difference between MSI Lightning and EVGA is the Lightning runs cooler and will over clock higher. However the heat gets dumped inside your tower which raises ambient heat temps. If you like to OC your CPU that will limit you if your tower dosen't have good air flow and cooling going on. I personally preffered the EVGA GTX 580 reference card because it blows the hot exhaust out the back air flow bracket outside my tower. Personal choice.

Also PS.....list your specs in 'Quick Link' / 'Edit Details' - so we can see all your specs. When asking for help it makes it easier on those helping you know what your dealing with.

Don't let this choice fustrate you because it's truly an awesome card and your in a great position to be able to buy one. Good luck and enjoy gaming on which ever one you choose.

Appreciate the well thought out reply. My current specs aren't worth noting, but are amd 3500+, x800pro, 1gb ram, TK tsunami dream, etc...

I haven't ordered all the parts for my rig yet. But my specs will be 2600k, 8gb Ripjaws, p67 evo, gtx 580 (WHICH ONE!!!!!!), 850hx, haf x, Noctua NH-D14. Cooling isn't an issue i'd say


What is killing me is the memorial day rebates on the evgas.... I only have 14 minutes to make the decision on those.
