[TBREAK]MSI N580GTX LIGHTNING review - Page 5

post #41 of 99
Sexeh!
I may just buy this when the price plummets.

Thread Starter 
After doing some more digging,comparing the Asus DCII in techpowerup's review
Asus DCII max OC= 927MHz @1.115v runs at 92c
the Twin FrozrIII in Overclock3d's review
960MHz @ 1.1v runs 68c
obviously results will vary from card to card,but I would say MSI has the better stock cooler performance.The MSI also has 12 VRM's vs Asus' 10.Both are very quiet.

I'd barely see it in my case but I can't help but want this card so bad...

Of course, with my processor it would be completely bottlenecked

lolwat? Asus isn't binning the cores for these 580s and two Asus was so cheap they didn't even bother to cover the memory chips with heatsinks.

I think the TFIII/Lightning uses VRM/Memory heatsinks if I'm not mistaken.
