So I ended up buying the PNY GTX580 from Mark (here at PureOC), My original intention was to use this in my LanPC to replace my HD6950 single card.
However since I have my 700D apart right now due to MB failure here is my chance to make some changes if needed.
I have the board back from RMA and (not sure if I will put it back into the system or get a new board yet), I was thinking of maybe sticking the single GTX580 in and using that as my GPU and selling my GTX470's with Danger Den Blocks, However rather then using the factory liquid cooling on the GTX580 I was thinking of maybe buying a FULL water block for it so I can add it as part of my loop.
trying to find info if this card used the Ref. Design PCB or not.
read the PureOC Review:
PNY GTX 580 Liquid Cooled GPU and CPUBut it doesn't say if its Ref PCB or modified, I read slight changes but not exactly sure what they meant. Can someone clear this up?? is this card Ref design or not??
I really want to add a full water block if available. But if not I can always take my 120mm Rad out and use the factory liquid cooling on the GTX580.
Just some thoughts I have been playing around with this weekend..
What do you guys think??
I would want to get a second GTX580 to SLI it, but I would need to sell my 3 GTX470's before I even think about this.
