ignore his post. the six core 1336 platform is hardly even faster than sandy bridge.
And sandybridge is better for games because it is faster per core. clock for clock.

Look around there.. the good stuff is about page 48 and forward


Edit: See this comment: "the 580 is sugo king "

Edit 2: WHOA! This! "i disagree, i think the sugo king is the 570 because it fit without mods and works fine with the 300w psu"
If 570 runs on 300w psu. Then the 580 will for sure run on the 450w version!

Hmm.. I keep finding more and more evidence.

http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/8678...gtx-580-a.html

I am still not a 100% sure though.. the worst case scenario is that it doesn't work and I will have to sell the 580 (with a loss, ofc) and buy a smaller card. I am starting to think that it's worth the try

Some calculations, under full load:

2600K: 150w-190 watts depending on OC http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...essors_review/
Gainward 580: 270w under full load, +20w for slight OC for 3GB edition= 290w http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/..._card_review/9
Miscellanous, hdd, ram etc=50w

It adds up to around 490-530 watts. So, it could work, as long as you don't constantly stress test everything at the same time. And don't overclock too much.

But then I stress all components and the wattage use increases...? I've seen people read 550watts from the PSU in this case (under extreme stress, the PSU shut down) It will shut down and not damage components, right?

Or it could blow up and just take itself out. Or maybe some other components if unlucky. It's the luck of the draw. Sometimes it does do damage.

well said.

Why gamble with a rig like that?
Fork out a LITTLE more cash to ensure your system is powered with stable clean voltage.

I am simply in love with that case. My plan is now, to get a supplementary PSU (5.25 bay) and fit it on the side/top/backside of the case and route cables into the GFX. That will work for sure.

Would you consider an HD 5870 a good emergency plan? I've heard those run pretty cool

The HD5870 will use nowhere near the energy of the HD580. I think it'd be well suited to take its place.

I do remember mods to install a full ATX sized PSU in this thing. I believe it was on [H], but a user found a shortened ATX PSU and had to sacrifice the optical drive IIRC. I'd dig that up if I were you.

There's one.
