Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC review -
The GeForce GTX 580 comes with 1536 MB memory. The reference card is clocked at a 772 MHz core frequency, 1544 MHz on the shader processors and the GDDR5 memory runs at 4000 MHz (effective).
This Inno3D OC version runs at 820 Mhz on the core, 1640 on the shaders and 4200 MHz on the memory. That should bring in a little extra performance alright.
Connectivity wise, we see two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the left you can see a mini HDMI connector. Mini HDMI was chosen to be able to position the connector at the lower half, so that the top half can exhaust hot air.
Here we can see the backside, the card measures 27cm in length. Overall, a clean dark looking PCB, lots of smaller components though.
The GeForce GTX 580 has a maximum power consumption of roughly 250 Watts, as such you'll need to power the card with both a 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe PEG lead from your power supply. We recommend a 600W power supply to start with, with one card of course.
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 or three cards in one PC and have them do a decent workout. Though due to the size of the card, 3-way SLI might become an issue.
Once the ambient air has been used to cool the GPU, the hot air will be blown outside the PC through the exhaust as you can see above the monitor connectors. Always make sure you have proper ventilation inside the PC chassis.
In this article we review the beast, the GTX 770 HerculeZ X3 Ultra from Inno3D is locked and loaded with the mighty HerculeZ X3 cooler, that's three slots wide but keeping the GPU under 55 Degrees C and completely silent. Pure awesomeness. That's not all though, it is factory overclocked for you at a very high level but even so can be tweaked quite a bit further.

In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Inno3D, it's their all new GeForce GTX 660 Ti iCHILL version and to date is one of the most impressive graphics cards in the 660 Ti range we have tested.
Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC review
We review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580OC. Despite a very high price tag the product seems to become a nice success. As such directly at launch several models based of this SKU where already announced, e.g. the regular clocked models, factory higher clocked models, liquid cooled models. This OC edition, in particular this is a reference GeForce GTX 580 that has been clocked faster to 820 MHz on the core where it also welcomes a nice bump on the overall memory frequency.
