Hmm, oh well. So long as its not louder. My old card would only whine in WEI and folding. So... when I was trying to sleep lawl. 6x 1800 rpm fans will drown it out though

Here's my proof biggrin.gif Finally got my phone connected to the computer.

Anyway, any ideas on how i should proceed with the temperature situation?

I am 100% down for water cooling but I have no idea how or where to even start on that.

GPU-z for the skeptics.

Have you tried a custom fan profile for your card? My temps on air were fine, I went water cooled for fun. For water, be advised that most 590 GPU blocks have instructions for reference style (Asus/Nvidia) 590's and the EVGA is slightly different as far as screw holes and the backplate.

you can always go hydro copper biggrin.gif or just get a Koolance water block

Or, will the 590 @ 1.5gb hold up at 1920x1080p for a whole another year until 12/12 if that's when Kepler debuts. If so, that's my plan. To stick with 1080p @ 120hz and the 590's until Kepler. If not, then I'll either sell them for 2x580 3gb or maybe even keep them for a second rig. I'll admit, I'm a little more attached to these cards than I normally am. I'm pretty sure its due to the LED's on the cards and the kick ass aesthetic difference it gives my rig, which shouldn't really be a deciding factor in whether to keep or sell them, but I admit that for me it does a bit. I'm trusting more companies will adopt some similar aesthetics for their ultra high end cards.

You KNOW I'm not allowed to actually answer that wink.gif

Personally, yes, it's the trend...This is why I consistently refer people to the 580 3gb.

It's hard to explain because we break a barrier, games become more demanding, apps become more demanding but, over time...things rationalize and then we break another one and the process repeats.

Right now, games are at a stand still because the tech really just isn't there to do what they want to do...So, we're limited...DX11 is a LIMITATION more than anything else.

I feel that in the next year or two, you'll see this Vram barrier just fall over...Things in this industry also grow exponentially...

I don't think Kepler is going to be the bringer of change, I think it will be Maxwell.

For the next year, you're safe but, it's a very smart idea, if you game at max resolution, to start future-proofing.

I've been thinking about putting a waterblock on my EVGA GTX590 Classified but have no idea if it's a new or old version. How can I tell?

I've been taking a hard look at the AlphaCool NexXxoS: http://www.alphacool.com/product_info.php/info/p1002_Alphacool-NexXxoS-NVXP-NV-590-Serie.html?language=en&XTCsid=k2b7mj92sdhhh885amofj3qdvn01lktm, since I really didn't like the way EKWaterblocks blamed everybody else, especially SidewindersPC and Petra's, for what turned out to be EK's poor electroplating. TBH, it pissed me off to no end.

I wanted to buy the HydroCopper version but that's just about the ugliest block I've ever seen. Nowhere near as nice looking as the GTX580 FTW HydroCopper I bought last Christmas.

Will that waterblock be compatible with all 590s?

thanks for your reply,

does anyone know why this temp difference could be happening? Its always the same GPU on the GTX 590 with the new inductors. I am open to any suggestions! the blocks are in parallel with two koolance VID connectors. it looks like this.

the black arrows highlight the water flow and the red circle is the gpu which gets hot...Im assuming that is gpu 1 and 3 depending on where it is in the loop.450

So I don't want to start a new thread for this but I have to ask for your opinion.

I have 1 Asus 590 and it hits the usual temp (70 -90 degrees C) in my case. Now I've wanted to get into water cooling so I thought what better way than to cool my 590. I got all geared up only to find out that WC my 590 would cost the same as buying another 590.

So now I have the dillema of choosing between watercooling or getting another 590.

What do you guys think? I've heard people have problems with the quad sli of the 590's?

any advice would be awesome!
