Also I have to say who the hell designed the second heat sink contact lol.

If you have an Alienware and thus an AW ref 590, it's revision 2 so, it's actually recommended to keep the heat sink pads on...

I believe I even added a page to the 590 orders in your user manual about NOT doing the above...

It really doesn't help and it actually voids your warranty...

I have no heat issues with my 590. Although i run an automatic custom fan profile.
That would have been what i tried long before i started taking the card apart.

Greetings,

Here is a pic of my GTX590 on water, no over-clocking *Yet. Case is Silverstone FT02

2011-12-28_15-13-36_606.jpg

Temps max at 50deg on a HOT day running BF3.

When I run GPU-Z, which gpu is listed as #2? Since this is always the hottest, under load, I'm guessing it's the one furtherest from the power connectors at the front of my cards. I do this because the flow of air in the card goes from the front, at the power connectors, mainly to the rear of the card. Is this right?

I run 2 instances of GPU-Z all the time, usually minimized to the tray, and have been choosing gpu's 2 & 4 to monitor.

I really need to get these cards under water asap. There's a huge amount of hot air being pulled out of the top of my case. If I leave this (my sig) computer running 24x7 I don't need to run a heater in my room.

As I'm typing this, the cards are running at 38C on the top card and 34C on the lower one. About 23C ambient. The hottest I've run them, so far, is the low 90's. That's running Stone Giant at max settings, with a very mild OC.

Unfortunately, no there is no overvolting available even though the option is listed with the EVGA Precision v2.1.1 program running. I can move the slider but it instantly reverts to stock voltage when I release the mouse button. At idle the cards run at 0.8750mV and 0.9380mV max. I think adding about 0.25mV, or even more, would be best for these cards. Under water, of course. I'd like to volt mod the BIOS but don't know how and certainly don't want to brick these expensive cards. They can easily run any game I own at max settings, so I guess I'd best just leave the BIOS alone.

Meh whatevs. But to clarify this particular 590 only had pads on the memory chipsets and whatnot, which of course I kept those on. It said 503b I believe on the sticker. So when you say it voids the warranty, youre talking about the gfx card only I assume? And actually I think ive seen a 2c drop, certainly not worth it though. Also do you have any tips on the airflow of this case with a 590 given how hot the 590 gets?

I know...I ordered them that way.

I'm simply clarifying that it's a rev.2 (b) and it voids your warranty to do what you did.

I doubt we'd void the whole PC, as I don't think it's necessary but, your card is definitely void if you send it in that way and have an issue with it.

Depends on which of our cases you have...The Aurora is a different case from the rest etc...So, it really depends on what you ordered...If you let me know I can better answer that.

Guys, i come to you since i think you are the only ones that can help me...
Look i just bought a gtx 590 videocard from another guy via eBay but when i connect it to my MOBO the light on the side starts (the GEFORCE logo) and the fan starts too but i cannot get an image out of the DVI ports! I already tried connecting it to the other pci express port but it does not work either.
I also already connected it to another computer and it shows video there(i tried it with a MOBO that did not had a processor running and just got to the BIOS screen, it was from a computer store near home).
I have a Maximus IV Gene Z and when i connect it to the MOBO and go to the BIOS the GPU. DIMM POST shows no cards are connected.

What to you guys think is the problem? In theory if the video card outputs video its an indication it works right? Also i was using a DVI D to HDMI adaptor on the DVI-I port of the GTX 590 i hope you can help me with that!

Many thanks friends!

Check the cable you were using. Switch the one from the working computer to the other one. It might be the monitor not 'waking' from sleep mode very quickly....

Don't forget to plug in the 2 8-pin power connectors.... in case you did...

hey guys. wondering if any of you can answer a question or 2 for me. i have an evga 590 classified comming to me in a couple weeks. i was wondering if nvidia till has the voltage locked on these cards? if so, is there a modded or unlocked bios floating around or would i be better off just seeing how far i can go on the stock voltage. also, what about fan control? is there manual adjustment for it or its it stuck on automatc?

thanks.
