All hardware has a chance to fail when overclocking. The 590 didn't "blow up" it sparked and died. It could happen to any card even the 580 or 6990.

Plus those idiots overvolted their 590 to 1.2 when Nvidia explicitly says not to go over 1.05.

The fact that the 590 only has 10 VRMS between the two cores compared to the 6 per GPU that the 580 is what makes it somewhat more dangerous to overclock on regardless of cooling. The problem with the 570s is that they don't seem to be able to handle high amount of voltage/current because they are hamstrung by the VRMs (which fail regardless of temperature).

The fact of the matter is the the GF110 cores are more powerful than the 6970 cores but are somewhat limited at higher resolutions due to the lack of VRAM. IF you do a forum search I remember that a member here at OCN did some benchmarking of the 3GB cards in 4 way SLI on 3 monitor surround.

Well here is another thought. Supposedly evga is releasing 580 3GB cards in a couple weeks.

If so I wonder if the plan on releasing 6GB 590 cards. Which with their step-up program I could upgrade to.

Do note, the "Special edition" cards are not eligible for step up. This just changed recently, as I read, however, cant seem to find a link at this time, you would have to get a regular version of the card.

They also say only to US, no outlying territories soo you would have to confirm on that.

See here : http://www.evga.com/support/stepup/

AP/AE address are the same as a US stateside. Its not considered overseas or a outlying territory. Therefore it will be honored. However didn't know about the special editions though. Makes me wonder if I should just get the air cooled ones then, and just not OC them.

EDIT: So I read the link and it didn't say anything about special editions not being honored. although they were extremely specific about what cards are honored and what upgrades are honored. It was made clear it has to be a GPU upgrade, therefore 580 1.5gb->580 3GB is ineligible but 580 3gb->590 6Gb is eligible.


I emailed evga so I will see if I get a response on plans to bring out 6GB 590s.

Anybody have a link to benchmarks of 580 3GB Tri-Sli vs 580 1.5GB Quad-Sli?

quad-sli scales horribly in games

and tri-sli is only around 150% efficiency (I was planning on going gtx 470 tri-sli but after reading the reviews changed my mind)

In terms of a 6gb gtx 590 (it is more than possible with added VRMs, but I think you will wait a few more months before it is released)

SLI MSI R580 Lightnings. Not out just yet, but they will probably be one of the most powerful single gpu cards on the planet that will overclock like champs with 16 power phases.

yeah...ALL hardware can such simply die...like in this thread...

http://www.overclock.net/12878054-post13.html

You simply walk away from your comp a few hours and come back to the magic blue smoke that is stored on the components on your PCB... Yeah...just a fluke...nothing to see here people move on...

these cards would have been so close to perfection if they came with 3gb Vram and had support for a fullcover waterblock. My bet is, there true overclocking potential is drastically reduced by there cooling. MSI needs to learn that there twin frozr cooling isn't actually as good as they think it is, and needs to provide support for watercooling
