1 out of 5 eggsOverheatins like crazy

Pros: Fast, ample RAM for both Gaming and video editing, slim so it doesn't require two motherboard/case slots.

Cons: Overheats. the maximum operating temp is 97 degrees C, it idles at 110 degrees. When launching a game, doing a Windows Experience test, or an EVGA Precision X test, it skyrockets to 160 degrees, overheats, and crashes. I got a replacement card from EVGA. Guess what, it's got the same issues.

Other Thoughts: For those wondering if the issue lies with my system: no. I triple checked all of EVGA's troubleshooting requirements. My 12V voltage is within acceptable limits. My power supply is an ample 850W. Everything either exceeds or is within acceptable operating parameters. I even threw the card into a completely different (and newer) system with a 1K power supply. Same issue for both cards. Sending this back for a refund. Also, check out a Google search on this card. It turns out I'm not alone, there's a lot of people with this same issue for the GTX 580 3GB from EVGA.

Manufacturer Response:


With what you are describing, I can only see this as being 1 issue. This is a hydro copper card, meaning it is meant for a water cooled loop. If you are running this card with no waterloop then yes it is going to get very very hot and fail, as you are running it outside of what it is designed for. If you are running this in a loop, than there would most likely be some issue with the waterblock on the card. In which case please contact me at

Thank you,
Brandon B

5 out of 5 eggsStop reading and get it already!

Pros: Game crusher! No kidding, not to mention running Unigen Heaven on max setting; one HD monitor. Never dipped below 36fps, stock speeds, and to top it off never got over 80 degrees farenheit!

Cons: Two eight pins and a six pin almost maxed out the plugs on my 1KW power supply; only using one plug per cable. Lights dim when the beast gets going, but that's more to do with poor circuit setup in our Apt.

Other Thoughts: I don't have overclocking figures to tell you about because this is for a client. I wouldn't want to push it to the stratosphere and have to explain the blown power supply, card has temp fail safe at 100 degrees celsius. So it wouldn't allow you to cook it off. Not to mention explaining to the police again that no I wasn't shooting a shotgun in an Apt. it was just a power supply...

Pros: Great Price for Performance.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 Classified Ultra's with stock cooling. After installing and seeing that these cards have a Dual Bios feature (2nd Bios for serious overclocking), I bought 2 waterblocks and turned them into Hydro Coppers. I was able to crank these high enough to score a 13,085 in 3Dmark11. According to EVGA, an overclock on the core to 1070 does not even come close to how these cards can perform. I was running a 1200 watt Silverstone Strider PSU, and the system would shut down due to lack of power before I could O.C. these cards more. This is an amazing card, especially in SLI.
