^wow thats a great price! anyone have any experience with this company as far as online orders go?

also, does anyone have an experience with Zotac GPU's, good or bad? I usually buy EVGA gpu's exclusively but a savings of over $100 is making me want to pull the trigger.

Impressed with the Temps on these cards, i did remove the High flow Air Bracket from my 2 x 480's and installed them on my 580SC's.

Idle Temps, Card #1 / Card #2

Fan @ 60% - 2 x 480's = 39C / 37C
Fan @ 50% - 2 x 580's = 29C / 32C

580's with no OC (yet) 800 / 2025 - 980X @ 4.13Ghz



First OC attempt:
850 / 2100 - no issues at all running Vantage - max Temp on Card #1 59C
Should be fun seeing just how high I can get em on Stock Voltage ;) Not sure if the Vantage Link will work below or not, but with the first OC P48 246....shouldn't take much tweaking to crack 50K ;)

Result

i just bought this card from expc.ca. over $100 savings from even online competitors in the US had me drooling. Lifetime warranty is a bonus as well. The only issue im really concerned with is should I need Zotacs support, hopefully they will be friendly and quick about it.

Well I just checked and I'm moving on up in the queue. I'm at 705 now, Christmas is looking unlikely. That kind of frustrates me as I have time off then and would really like to test it out then.
