4 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: *factory overclock to 860Mhz
*not too long or wide
*nice packaging and cable accessories
*it lights up!

Cons: *the triple fan housing is horrible

Other Thoughts: ok this card is good for the most part. the thing i really dont like though is plastic fan housing that "clips on" to the heatsink. It literally just does that: it "clips on" with little plastic tabs that fit over the heatsink...make sure is clipped on as best as you can, cause its not nearly as good as my gigabyte 580 windforce.
also if you run these SLI, be prepared for temps on this card to get to ~95C. these cards need seperation on the motherboard from the other gpu. once i moved my card it went from ~95C to ~75C under full load.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: deadly silent when you don't tweak the fan settings.
also, i've read over the internet that you can push the clocks really high without damaging the card. so its a positive point for enthusiast.

Cons: i don't see much difference compare to my old oc'ed gtx480

Other Thoughts: i'm using it at 880/2250mhz @ 1.1v, seems good clocks, but aint see much gain from stock clocks; ive setup a violent fan setting in msi afterburner so the card runs really loud but doesn't exceed 55° after a good hour of BF3 maxed 1080p (on 64ppl server)

i should just buy an other one.

2 out of 5 eggsOverheating monster

Pros: This card renders very well and is amazingly quick

Cons: The MDT software is such a pain with dual monitors that I've taken to just using the displayport to get around it. the card also produces more heat than a thermoelectric plant, it hits 98 almost every time I boot up a game. The fan bezel is made in a way that it exausts its hot air INSIDE of the case causing everything to just keep heating up, I tried to blow nice cool air on it with my side fan and found out that rather than help it just fought the card and created a dead zone of hot air that continued to build,

Other Thoughts: Overall a good card if you can find a way to stop it from trying to melt itself, Wouldn't buy unless you have liquid nitrogen on hand.

5 out of 5 eggsOverclocking This Card...

Pros: Please look at other review I wrote.

Cons: Please look at other review I wrote.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this in conjunction with my other review; mostly because it is important for a lot of enthusiast who push the card as much as they can.

This is my first card from Galaxy, it has a elegance that is quite nice and a quality to it. But the stock clock on a GTX 580 is 772. This particular card is at 860. So it's almost a 100 mhz above the stock.

The stock card is 860 mhz, 2004 mhz memory (4008) total. The card ideally doesn't mind 900 mhz and 2250 mhz memory (4500). That is where it sits without any driver fails or crashes. So you don't have very much wiggle room. Though it's stable the card hovers around 61-70 degrees in graphic intensive games.

The most I pushed this card before it completely gave out was 1.1 ghz and 2600 mhz (5200). If you adjust the voltage barely at all it also has a tizzy; so if your looking to push it further buy another brand.

If you don't mind a 2% gain with 100 mhz added and possible failure. Happy with stock OC then it's a grea

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: So I decided to upgrade to this from an ATI-Radeon 5870 and it is night and day in comparison. It is a beautifully made card; with nice performance. Especially if you can nab it on sale got it for $309 so why not buy two? So That's what I did.

I haven't had a chance to test the multi-monitor software provided by Galaxy. I've heard it's terrible, but until I test it I can't really comment. But so far I've been impressed with the card.

Cons: My largest con with this card; is in Windows 8 it performs slightly better then in Windows 7. Not sure what is causing the skew in performance- however; the driver for Windows 8 isn't 100% ready for prime-time. When the Operating System passes the call to the "Slide-Menu" feature in Windows 8 it causes this weird system-delay. Hopefully it gets ironed out before official release.

Other Thoughts: The card is truly great for the low price it has been on sale. Hopefully some of the Windows 8 driver issues get worked out. Otherwise it's a beautiful card.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks good but unexpected

Pros: After using many different cards startinng all the way from a 4850, 5850, 570 msi, xfx 6970, 580 galaxy mdt now I have an idea of what a card should be like.

I was very impressed with the galaxy boxing everything you need was their and thankfully was their because you can't really find popular cables of what this gpu requiired to run their "MDT" whihc is a false advertisement.

Cons: The software clearly says you can split into 3 different screens, or make it into 1 piece however I can never get that to work and the software is just so vague. I heard many reviews talk about this. I called Galaxy and their support was Overseas said they'd get back to me within 24-48 hours with a solution. Its been over 1000 hours a nd almost a month now where I have not received a response. The graphics card generates so much heat it doesn't allow room for overclocking at all.

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts stick with branded names like XFX or EVGA who value their customers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Geek,

I'm sorry you feel deceived by our descriptions of MDT technology, and I'm especially shocked to hear you did not receive a response to your questions from our support team. I've used the Galaxy MDT GTX 580 quite a bit myself and it's been one of my favorite cards, but I will admit that setup can be tricky without a proper explanation of the technology. Please email me directly at andrew@galaxytechus.com and I'll help you set everything up just how you want it, answer any questions you have about the card, and investigate to find out what the situation was with your email to Support.

Thanks,

Andrew Fischer

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but hot and noisy

Pros: It's fast! Running overclocked at 860MHz it shows great performance.
If you plan to run racing sim games it's awesome! Cockpit inner view is great and it shows everything is happening outside improving imersion.

Cons: Too hot. Running Mafia II at max settings w/o physx it peaks at 93ºC! All 3 fans max and very loud.
Couldn't set spanned mode. Or all 3 monitors working as one or nothing. Can't get 3 monitors working alone.

Other Thoughts: Besides the cons, it's a great card!

5 out of 5 eggsGalaxy 58NLH5DI5TXX MDT X4

Pros: Its a GTX 580!
Although higher on the price side, there the fastest stock overclocked cards.

Exceptional frames per second in Mass Effect 3 set to highest res

Cons: NONE AT ALL

Other Thoughts: I have two of these in SLI. I recommend using a power supply that is certified for SLI to push these cards for optimal performance.

The stock coolers look awesome and better than any 580 card I have seen.

These cards are designed for multiple displays; however I am only using them for games on one screen.

I had one issue where I was using the power molex adapters since my original power supply was not SLI certified. One of the cards did not light up as there was insufficient power going to both cards. A new power supply solved that issue.

Specs:
AMD 8150 3.6 GHz clocked to 4.9 GHz on Antec H2O 620
Arctic Silver 5
Asus Crosshair V ROG
Corsair 16 GB Ram CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9
RevoDrive 3 240 GB
2 in SLI Galaxy 580's
XFX P1-1050-BEFX Power Supply
HAF 932 Coolermaster case

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Idles really cool ~30C. Highest stock overclock in this price range. Crysis 2 looks and runs amazing at 1920x1080.

Cons: Around 70C the fans kick up pretty loud. Only a few games have gotten it this hot - Skyrim, Anno 2070... It's on and off with this card. But it's a GTX 580. I'm assuming they all get really hot and loud.

Other Thoughts: Was a killer deal for the price paid. The stock overclock is amazing. I haven't messed with the multiple displays because I use this card on my HDTV for gaming.
