5 out of 5 eggsthis is the easy button

Pros: all in one cooling solution for cpu and gpu. keeps temps down under 60 no matter what i throw at it. factory oc on gpu is pretty high right out of box. best of all for my mind is that they kept the standard air blower on the gpu as well at adding the water block. adds even more cooling to have that extra stream of air blowing across the back of the gpu water block; as well as helping keep all the other components on the vid card cool. cpu water block comes with thermal paste already on it from the factory.

Cons: installation instructions could be a little clearer. this thing is HUGE!! i managed to get it into a mid tower atx case(antec two hundred v2), but i had to get real creative. i had planned to make the custom mods i made even before i decided to get this card, but even with the changes it almost didn't fit. if you don't have a full size atx case or larger, ya might want to rethink things. my last rig had an 8800 gts. this card is easily 30% larger and heavier.

Other Thoughts: i built a new rig for swtor mainly. this gpu with an intel 3930k on an asus sabertooth x79. total overkill, but so long as things hold up i expect to get 4-5 years out of this rig. right now i have everything turned up to max and i'm getting over 100fps no matter what i do. this rig is also my home entertainment center. i run at full 1080 for eveything, no worries. if you get it for an lga 2011 build, be aware that it will take a tremendous amount of force (and many choice colorful metaphors) to get the water block locked in. this is normal for the new socket... it made me sweat with worry, but it's the way intel designed things so just roll with it. steady pressure and paitence will get the job done.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat graphics and excellent cooling

Pros: Excellent graphics, quiet operation, and keeps CPU and GPU temperatures very low

Cons: Fans are a little noisy.

Documentation consists of a single large diagram that is a little vague and hard to read, although there was nothing essential missing, even if it was a little hard to find.

Other Thoughts: I had plenty of room in my Antec P280 enclosure. I can imagine having problems with the radiator, fans and hoses in a tight space.

This is the only integrated system I could find that provides water cooling for both the CPU and the GPU. And of course, one of the best graphics cards on the market. You just install the GPU, install a heat sink on the CPU, bolt the radiator fan unit, and plug it into the cpu fan header on the motherboard. With the fans going full I cannot get the GPU temperature to exceed 70C, although I'm not overclocking anything.

4 out of 5 eggsMissing fan connectors

Pros: I've had the card for a few days, and for the most part it's what I expected: Fast & stays cool. Unfortunately I'm still looking at how to solve an issue (see Cons below) which almost made me wish I hadn't bought the card.

Cons: The included installation diagrams indicate (at step 15) to plug the two fans that sandwich the heat exchanger into the pump, and shows a Y-split power header coming out of the pump for those two power cords. The pump itself actually only has a single fan power cable.

I ended up plugging the second fan into my MOBO directly (in the second CPU header port) but so far have found no way to control or monitor the speed of that fan, so it stays on full, which is way too loud and defeats the whole point of having a liquid cooler.

I called PNY support, who told me that they don't actually supply a y-split power cable for the card (so the diagram is wrong) and that a single MOBO header likely wouldn't be able to supply enough power for the pump and two fans, so getting my own y-cable (which I managed to find for 3+shipping on Newegg) would likely be bad. On the other hand, running the card without the second fan would also be bad due to the extra thermal load of a CPU.

Other Thoughts: The support person was certainly interested in helping (another reviewer indicated they didn't care, which I didn't find to be the case) but wasn't able to come up with a solution.

I will try contacting the manufacturer of my MOBO to see if they know why I can't control the speed of the second fan, and see if they can tell me whether the single CPU header would be able to support the pump and two fans.

This (relatively) expensive card has one page of installation instructions that are mostly good and easy to follow (with this one fan issue as the exception) otherwise there are no printed manuals. The DVD has NVIDIA pdf files for documentation, which is fine as this is essentially an OC'd reference card. Software wise, there are out of date NVIDIA drivers and an amusing demo, but a lack of any kind of control software, so I had to find third party tools to get access to GPU temperature, on-board fan speed and OC state, etc. These niggling issues add up to a 4-egg rating.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: It was a good card. Ran cool with no problems with framerate or temperatures. My 470 was running 70-80 while this card ran between 40-50 on full load.

Cons: Unfortunately I had some bad luck, because mine started Artifacting within a week of installing it. Not Newegg's fault, I just happen to get a defective card.

PNY support = the suck.

Other Thoughts: I do have a complaint about PNY support though. Very unwilling to help me. I had better luck with RMAs with EVGA. They stated it was my board or PSU, but I do not have the issue with any other video card. Finally after multiple drivers, fresh install of OS, and trying the card with a new rig, it was found to be the card.

So I went back to Newegg to RMA it. Newegg worked with me and should have a new card hopefully shortly. Newegg support was more than willing to help me with my issue.

Though my card lived a short life, I still gave Newegg 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsOveral very satisfied

Pros: Great closed loop water cooled factory OC GTX 580. This card comes stock with clock at 857mhz. The GPU runs super cool (never above 55C even under futuremark overvolted). Install was not bad at all (mabe30 mins). The stock fans blow at about 2000 rpm, so they can get a bit load but very tolerable.

Cons: I have an I7 970 and with this closed look + GPU there is very little headroom to overclock. Prime 95 + Futuremark for 8 hours leaves the CPU at 68C at stock clocks. I could get away with minor OC, but as soon as I raised voltage on CPU under prime 95 temps got too high for my liking.

Other Thoughts: This is a great hassle free system, just bear in mind that with higher end CPU's there will be VERY little room to overclock before your CPU runs into heat issues. If you are a hardcore overclocker I would recommend going with the GPU only version and create a separate loop for you CPU. For me I don't do a whole lot of OC anymore and frankly there is no reason to with puppy can handle anything I throw at it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Runs Quietly , Gtx 580 Temps : 35c idle never goes above 50c under load, Cpu Amd 1090T 27c idle never goes above 40c under load.

Cons: My Dvd drives couldn't read the PNY installation disc, which has the Nvidia drivers v275.33 on it.

Other Thoughts: My Gtx 470 msi frozr ii temps were 42c idle and up to 74c under load. This is a great water cooling setup. the hose length is generous not too tight.I'm not sure how much overclocking head room there is if you overclock the cpu and video card . My system Scores above average in 3Dmark 11 , 3Dmark vantage and PcMark 7 for an Amd setup.
