Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 4xx/5xx thread"
Just got my EVGA 580 SC yesterday to upgrade from a GTX 280. Quite a nice bump running at 2560x1600. Only thing I noticed is that it gets a bit hotter than other people are reporting. I'm hitting about 86C at load. Also, because I'm running dual monitors, the card never idles at 51mhz so my idle temps are a lot higher than they should be at about 60C. I really wish they'd fix that bug.
I did notice that overclocking the card beyond the stock overclock does not seem to make temps any higher. Currently I'm running at 840/1680/2060 rock solid and plan on going for higher.
