How can you blame the card for your poor case airflow? According to your old thread, this card actually ran cooler than your 280, it just wasn't external exhaust.

The 590 has its issues, obviously, but it seems silly to fault it over that.

I understand why he returned the card, 1 GPU running at 80-85c is cooler then 2 GPU's both running at 70-75c

I'd say go with a 580 and be done, love mine, cooler in my case, a little more noise (Had the ac accelero xtreme on my old 4870X2) but lots more power

I agree, the OP should go with a GTX580. It's the best card Nvidia pulled out in a year. It's the fastest single GPU, run cooler than a GTX480, it overclocks well and it doesn't have the problems of the GTX570 and GTX590.

GTX580 is a winner.

He can get a 580 and a block with what he has left, I'd go that route that way you can probably hit 1GHz core on the 580 (lol I'd have an aneurysm) without extra heat or noise, but you will need to upgrade your rad or add another small rad.

my dream was to get two hydro 580's and replace my 460's but just could not get passed the 1400usd for the two but if I get crazy I would! I also thought of saving some money and just get two 480's since water is they way I was going anyway

800D's have plenty of air flow. Two 140's intaking and 3 120's exhausting is fine. Case is not the issue.

Two 140s and 3 120s is "plenty?"

Then what is a Phantom with one 200, one 140 and two 120 intakes, and one 120 and two 200 exhausts?

Obviously his airflow is the issue. The card was operating at very average temps, but the hot air wasn't exhausting properly and overheating the rest of his system (apparently?). I wouldn't fault the card for that.

Got to remember a graphics card need to be able to run in cases with even less air movement than that.

An 800D could be fitted with 5 140's and 3 120's if you wanted.

The NZXT Phantom is also plenty.

The reason the issue is not the case is that its not the case creating the heat. It's the GTX590 because that is the source of the issue, its what's creating the problem by outputting the heat in the first place.

The case is not to blame. It was the same before the 590 and there wasn't an issue.

If you change one thing your often going to have to change something else to make it work right, fact.

Willhemmens this is way off topic sorry guys but I was very interested on the voltage settings that the phenom II can take, I seen you had your at 1.65 or something like that and if you can weather it be here or PM or another thread would like to hear about how much you have pushed it and what you think it can take safely voltage wise also cpu/nb volts are not known to me on how far I can go. once again sorry to all for being off topic but just needed to ask
