What power connectors does it need?

It takes 2 x 8 or 6 + 2 pin power connectors.

Here's a link, you can see where the connectors plugs go in one of the pics in the photo gallery.

Awesome card!!!

I was planning on buying a used 580, but threads like this make me nervous...

Should have done your research before buying that card. You would have found most of them overheat.

Thx to Roadhog ;) Some may wonder why not the 680 - none in stock in denmark

No warranty? two years should still be covered I would think. But this is the main reason I use a custom fan profile. I never let them get over mid 70's on the temps and that's when they're pegged at 99%.
Hope you enjoy the new ones:cool:
