I haven't seen a single one...It'd be kinda rad to see something different.
The Koolance one looks nice. And the Aquagrafix one too. Only problem I have with the EK blocks are those stupid little black spacers that you have to 'glue' onto the block with tim. (DD and Koolance spacers are already mounted flush for you...then again, you pay $30-$40 more for them)

You sure you don't have vsync turned on? FPS seems kinda low for 580 SLI, but then I haven't really tested SCII performance.

Yeah its off. Actually if dont override the settings in NV Control panel and turn off AA I get around 90-100FPS on Extreme settings 1920x1080 (GPU usage is around 35% on both cards) really strange low gpu usage. But on cutscenes it fires up to 95-99% gpu usage on both cards I get around 300FPS.

When I manually turned on AA I got max gpu usage although frames arent ideal. Really given up on the game. If you can try out the game please do so I would know if something is really wrong.

Well, like said before it's most likely a CPU bottleneck. In my experience, RTS games are mostly CPU-dependant.

This game is that much CPU hungry to make an i7 950@4ghz kneel down? ohhooh

From these numbers, it looks like you'd want to run at least a dual-core CPU above 2.0 GHz to play StarCraft II. For smoother gameplay, a dual-core over 2.5 GHz should be enough to do the trick. Admittedly, playing against multiple difficult AI opponents might be a little more taxing on the CPU than our benchmark, so if you're upgrading with StarCraft II in mind, we'd recommend the higher end of this spectrum.

just a quick question..im having what looks like pink artifacts (seems to appear more on bright lights in movies, and on white tool bars) after running a little less then a 20% overclock for a couple weeks (not 24/7)..could it be caused by my overclock or soes it sound like a card issue.

I lowered my card to stock, restarted and went through a whole HD show with no issues, but it still happens here and there when browsing the net, and a lot when gaming.

I checked temps a couple times, and nothing seems to have gone into dangerous levels, i didnt even hit 50 degrees

What it is better?.
EVGA Gtx 580 NORMAL or SuperClocked?
Also I'll upload more than 900Mhz

the superclocked edition has a higher stock gpu/memory clock speed then the reg. edition (SC=797 mhz/4050mhz Reg. = 772mhz /4008 mhz)

But the components are the same, is not it?
They say Superclock version has the same components as the regular version.
