EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Quad-SLI Bundle Pack - Unboxing and Setup

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So I've been pretty quiet around these forums for the past twelve months. Nvidia's first-generation GF100 Fermi architecture came and went, from March 2010 and onwards. Product cycles were fulfilled across all market segments, consumers were consuming, enthusiasts were being enthusiasts, and product managers were striving to squeeze every last ounce of marketing out of the Fermi lineup as they saw appealing.

But it wasn't enough for some of us. The first-generation GF100 was plagued with low wafer yields, leaky power transistors and low clockspeed gains followed by a rugged thermal dynamics with inadequate heatsink ventilation. Nvidia was trying too hard at its own game, striving to work against the grain of TSMC's supply chain and engineering an overcrowded architecture outside of its competitive means. The final result was a generation of products with an uncertain future, with a composition that required not only a metal-layer respin, but a base-layer respin that took nearly six months to complete.

Today, it's time for me to break the silence. The time has come for a new generation of Dual-GPU extreme enthusiast SLI configurations based on a revised 40nm architecture so dense with positive characteristics and performance gains that even leaked Chinese benchmarks won't do these cards any justice.

Earlier this afternoon, I received a long-anticipated EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified Quad-SLI Bundle Pack from EVGA. The cards were just installed, and my machine was just massively reconfigured with four 8-pin PCI-E power cables flowing hundreds of watts into these power-hungry GPUs. Now, the cards could have been in my possession on launch-day, seeing that EVGA is not far from my residence in Southern California, but shipping procedure states that the cards need to be shipped out and given tracking numbers. Regardless, I am INCREDIBLY excited to have this extreme Nvidia 40nm GF110 Quad-SLI configuration in my possesion, and after many months of waiting, the dream has finally become a reality. This is by far one of the best spring breaks I've ever had.

Benchmarks in the morning! cool.gif \m/

I am thinking of doing the same for my SB build except I will get the Hydro copper versions. Can't wait for your benchmarks.

I admit that the first component which caught my eyes when I first looked into your Raven was not the cards but that big shiny TRUE Copper. lol

Back to the 2 GTX590s:
I am very interested to know the cooling performance when GTX590 is put inside a case. Because the card's reference cooling involves the hot air being exhausted bi-directional (to the front and to the rear....up and down for the Raven layout), I wonder how much the case's upward air movement (due to bottom intake fans = green arrows in the pic) will interfere with the lower exhausted air in that region (blue circle in the pic below).

I think it is good to monitor the temperature of the 4 cores, to see if the 2 lower cores have (much) higher temperature.

TRUE FTW...
Waiting for benchies in the morning. Are you going to overclock the cards?? *that is the silliest question to ask on OCN*.
