hi,

there seems to be so many various versions of the 580 which by default produces the most credit

best regards

I am not really sure, because I could never afford such a GPU but normally, it is safe to say that the factory OC ones produce the most credit and run with more stable temperatures than overclocking them yourself.

Hi all,
i prefer gigybyte OC and SOC and they are really good. 3 fans, good cores and more fun than with standard card...

which is best? tough question, so I add to the pile.

I agree with hammeh and decided on factory oc'd. I have the evga black ops and w/o upping the voltage run 880 with stock fan speed <70%. there is plenty left in this card, but not pushing it on stock air. just in case you are wondering, that is ~700+k for a single card. also, this card is surprisingly tame sounding at ~70% fan.

great card, and I hear evga support not bad either.

oh yeah and possibly as important, I am impressed by the gaming experience.

good luck.

EDIT: I should have mentioned that fan speed is auto as set by evga. it appears evga prefer the card kept under 90C, ~88C is my max. I have read 90C is not a problem for the card.

hi,

so it seems that getting factory OC card and upping maybe a little futher is the best way to go for stable results 24/7 ?

best regards
Ian

Ian,

I should have clarified. my apologies.

it depends on your situation. it is my impression that a factory oc'd gpu is a card with a better cooling apparatus, ie. beefier. if you are satisfied with a quality and mostly quiet air cooler, then a tad more money is worth it. if intent is to use a better than reference cooler, get whichever 580 reference you prefer. again, that is my impression of what a factory oc gets you. frankly, I have my doubts, but such is the word on several forums. otherwise, a factory oc would be a ripoff that would sour the gaming crowd for guilty vendor. for example, the black ops oc is lame from the reference 772. yet I can easily, no voltage change and comfortably noise-wise, run at 880. by the way, at default this card, and a reference slightly oc'd, will get you ~640-650K.

so, if you have slick aftermarket cooling, get your preferred reference and enjoy a darn good card. if not interested in messing with the card's casing, I can attest the black ops 580 is kickass.

by the way, I am not one of those fanboys. I have two oc'd 5870s in my other machine. I mention this so that you not thinking I am pushing nvidia over amd.

good luck.
