Liquid Cooling and Overclocking the GTX 580 with Danger Den
One review that has been wahayhaaay overdue is the one you're reading now. Early December we received a new water-block to liquid cool the GeForce GTX 580.
We finally had a GTX 580 available for modification and of course we jumped on it straight away.
So in the article we'll review the Danger Den GTX 580 liquid cooling block, as an extension to that we'll show you how to install the product and then look into cooling performance and everything related.
With such good cooling, as you will notice today, you can open up a plethora of tweaking options as well. So we'll extend the article into an overclocking experience also, where we'll take the GTX 580 close to a 1 GHz core clock frequency thanks to a simple voltage tweak. And heck, we still do not pass 50 Degrees C with that overclock.
So today we'll liquid cool a GeForce GTX 580. We'll be testing what temperatures we can reach but also look at the more advanced stuff, how well the card would overclock with the much improved temperatures.
All these questions will be answered in today's article. The folks at Danger Den shipped out their most shiny nickel plated GTX 580 cooling block, and we will put that to the test. We'll have a look at the product, the installation, temperatures before and after.
Interesting stuff we think, let's have a look at what is reviewed today and then head onward into the full article.
