    GTX580 DirectCU II

    A quick preview of the GTX580 with DirectCU II

    The retail box that you should be looking for.




    The GTX580 with Direct CU (Copper) heatpipes that contact directly onto the GPU and a BEEFY heatsink with dual 100MM fans.

    a quick diagram of Direct CU technology

    Yes requires 2 8pin PCI-E connectors


    And YES a 3 slot design. this is one BEEFY card. Many of you may be asking well what about triple or quad SLI. Due to the LARGE majority that usually purchase no more than a Dual SLI setup, we have decided to make DUAL SLI the best it can be. With this dual slot configuration, it really fills in the games compared to a single or dual slot design.


    And the rear backplate to prevent flex and help dissipate heat. Whats pretty cool is when you put the cards in your system in a traditional ATX case, you will be able to see the GTX 580 to show off your ballin GPU



    Some of the other unique features of this card is Super Alloy Power technology which consist of high end chokes, mosfet and capacitors.
    heres a quick video:


    While traditional chokes are hollow, you might here a high pitched whine when stressing your card as the choke coils will vibrate. You will probably notice this when running programs like Folding@home. With the new solid chokes you wont here these whines, plus they run cooler.

    just one question if you have a second card in your system wont this compromise the cooling of the first card because if the first card sucks in air its sucking the hot air of the second GPU in or if it blows out air isnt it just heating up the seccond card?

    On one side, since it's a open push cooler, the air can come from anywhere. As long as it can get in and out. The fan rotation side will tell if it take air from the rear bottom or via the back of the computer if no clearance is available over the fan.
    Now 2 dumb answer just for fun

    That's why they putted a bigger cooler XD
    Moving air is cooler so the hot air from the first get cooler while passing in the fan and cooler the second one. Look, when I blow air in my hand it feel cooler XD
