eVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified review -
Here we can see the backside, and that looks wicked clean and tidy all at the same time. The card measures roughly 11in - 280mm in length. Overall, a clean dark looking PCB, lots of smaller components though. Also embedded on the PCB are low ESR, high frequency capacitors, and high frequency 3MHz shielded inductors to help out with clean and precise voltage control.
We spot a Proadlizer IC (Prompt, Broadband, Stabilizer) capacitors which offer ultra-high capacitance ratings. Basically they clean up the power signal creating better stability and more overclock potential. And that we always like of course.
Not visible but located at the top of the card is a small micro-switch which activates a second BIOS, OC BIOS which enables an overclocking mode dedicated to sub-zero (LN2) cooling.
Located to the left like any high-end GeForce graphics card, NVIDIA will allow you to opt for the multi-GPU road with SLI as an option. You can pair two, three or even four cards in one PC and have them do a decent workout.
Just above it, do you see that vent. Initially we though this to be an air intake, but is actually exhausts hot air, and that sucks balls as it dumps a lot of heat inside your PC chassis.
On top there's also a series of LEDs, once powered on and properly connected it will show the voltage status with the help of these three LEDs.
Here's a perspective view taken from the topside. One 8cm fan and multiple classified logos can be found. But let's zoom in a little at the power connectors.
Correct, you'll need two 8-pin power headers and then another 6-pin PEG PCIe power connector, preferably leading from the PSU directly, to power up this puppy. These connectors alone can provide 375 Watt and another 75W through the PCIe slot.
In the middle you can see three small connectors, these are voltage monitoring points. Unfortunately EVGA did not ship the proper connecting cables to be able to connect a digital multi-meter to it.
In this review we peek at the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC (SuperClocked) edition. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and the new ACX cooler. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , with its 1111 MHz core clock frequency. We take the latest games and do some FCAT testing as well.
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX review
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC review
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC aka SuperClocked edition. as the name implies it is already factory overclocked for you with a 1046 MHz baseclock that can boost towards 1111 MHz.
