I am willing to go somewhat aggressive on this.

And I will not part the block from the card.

Will include the stock cooler.

Probably $400-425 with the block for a quick sale, seeing as GTX580's are on sale in the 390 range now. Somebody's got a EVGA with a Heatkiller block on it in the BST for 450 that hasn't sold yet.

Thanks bro,

If I do decide to sell it, then $400 is fine.

I've seen the official sheets on a soon to be released product, but even though the numbers look impressive.

I'm also happy with the performance the 580 right now.

I should also mention that I flashed the video card bios to the Asus Direct CU version with a higher stock clock and voltage range option. I would flash back to stock if buyer requests!

If I was going to put my EVGA GTX580 with EK EN+Nickel block up for sale today, it would be at $400 to move it before Kepler drops. The 580 kills every game out today at 1080p, but I could use some more horsepower on DX11 games at 2560x1600.

What is the stock clock on the Direct CU bios version?

Yep I am preparing for a 2560x1440 upgrade sometime soon. But I figure it's better to upgrade the monitor before the video card (unless I do them both at the same time).


With regards to the bios that I used, it's actually a modded Asus Direct CU bios.

"I started with the original ASUS BIOS from the new card, and altered the following:
Minimum fan speed increased to 20% (default was 10%). It is still almost silent at 20%.
Frequencies increased to match MSI GTX 580 Lightning defaults. GPU: 832 MHz, Shaders: 1664 MHz, Memory: 2100 MHz (4200 effective).
Maximum voltage unlocked up to 1200mv (1.2v)." <---- if you don't touch the voltage it's 1.1163 I believe.

YMMV but I could never really find a happy balance of voltage and overclocking past 950/2100 @ 1.163 anyway, so unlocking the voltage didn't do much for me :P
