Yeup.... The asus is fat as ^^^^
what about the clocking features ? is anyone out there SLI the direct cu ii n the reference card ?Originally Posted by Boulard83;15064182
They are totally different PCB
Costum PCB for the DCII with much better VRMs.
thank you!!Originally Posted by Kung Pow;15064277
The main difference of both cards is that the DCII is a Non Reference Card and the normal ASUS GTX 580 is a Reference Card.
The advantage of the Reference GTX 580 is the compatibility with a full waterblock, other than that it only has stock cooling which is inefficient and standard overclocking enhancing features.
The advantage of the DCII is a factory custom cooler, higher amount of VRMs and voltage features for a increasement of the voltage induction efficiency,a built in HDMI port and of course vast overclocking ability and performance
Hope that clears up
yea. I like it so much ^^Originally Posted by Deverica Wolf;15064278
But it's makes no noise whatsoever. My temps. at idle is 35C.
proof ?? i have never seen a full Waterblock for the DCIIOriginally Posted by error-id10t;15064625
The main gain with CU II is it's cooler, it's very good/quiet and second to none. It is a fat card as others mentioned and though it's non-reference you can get full water block for it.
