Well most cases will work but I think it is best if there are 120mm fan mounts on the top of the case. You will need so room for the hoses stick out past the card about a good 2 inches.


I wish I could post the PP price I got these for but that is against the rules... I'll just say if you bought 2 of these you would save more than the $150 it cost to buy the PP from NCIX.

Thanks for the mini review. It looks like you got a winner there.

I personally find the performance quite lack-luster here. Completely disregarding the quite or convenience/maintenance factor, hitting 90C is not exactly "good" by any means in my books. Can you throw up some photos of the mounted rads and pumps for these omni's?

This should explain everything.
NCIX.com - Buy NCIX Premier Partner Membership Fee Per Year - PPFEE In Canada.

Basically you get discounts on everything. Most are small but some are huge discounts.

K well I did a bit of overclocking today with stock voltages. Currently I am at 815 core clock, 1630 shader clock, 4000 mhz memory clock. Temps only went up 2 degrees. I just bought a couple PCI coolers to exhaust hot air and am gonna but in a front 5.25 bay fan cooler. Until then I will keep with these current clocks.

I don't know if you can still get them but Scythe Kama bay is what I have used to get more Air into my chassis.
Either that or A CM/Silverstone Bay converter put in empty will allow for more air.

Looking good Belgolas.

Nice, good to see they still have that available.
Now the real question is how many more cards are they gonna make this compatiable with.

I am not sure exactally what kind of contact points the card has with the cooler but did the temps drop well across the whole card?

how would I check temps on the other parts?

This pic shows that it makes contact with all the parts the stock cooler does.

They are making a 580 plate right now. So should see it in a month or two.

Just did a bit of testing.

Heaven benchmark
1920 x 1080
8XAA
16XAF
extreme tessellation
Shaders high
DX11

Stock clocks

FPS: 52.2
Min: 21.6
Max: 115.9
Score: 1315

Overclocked clocks
FPS: 57.2
Min: 23.5
Max: 126.6
Score: 1440

9% increase not bad.
