Product information: GeForce GTX 580 "Phantom" 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

The world's fastest GPU has arrived with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580. Experience blockbuster games like Call of Duty®: Black Ops and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X® 2 in their full glory with everything cranked to the max. Not only does the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 rip through the latest games, it also runs quieter than the previous generation. And as you have come to expect from the GeForce GTX GPU, the GTX 580 packs support for all the premium GTX gaming technologies such as NVIDIA Surround, 3D Vision, PhysX and SLI. With all these features and more, it is easy to see how the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 obliterates the competition.

Instead of fans on its obverse side blowing air onto the PCB, there are three fans on its reverse side, drawing air from the aluminum fin array, and onto the PCB. The PCB also seems to be a non-reference design.

a bit loud in SLI but powerful

Had to upgrade from 1.5gb 580's because I kept running out of vram in Skyrim. My previous cards were windforce cooled. Tbh, the cooler on the phantom doesn't seem to be as efficient as the windforce, but it also might be because the gap between them is a lot smaller than the previous cards.

Overclock wise, they are far superior to the Gigabyte cards though, I can run them so far stable at 860 with stock volts (1v). Haven't even touched the core voltage yet, I reckon they are good for 900.

Vram wise I feel a lot happier now knowing I've got cards that aint gonna bottleneck for such a high price.

Awsome card

I ordered this card to go with my new gaming pc build and its just awsome, it just eats up what ever you throw at it. A defo must buy if you can Afford it. Just waiting till i get some more money in so can get another one to sli so will be future proof for most games for the next few years. The card its self is very well built and runs at around 60c after a full 4 hour session on bf3 on auto fan settings.

best gtx design

i have had this gtx 580 for a week now, it is simply a dream.
very quit on idel, and very quit when playing dvds ectra. the onboard sound through hdmi port on gtx 580 phantom is very high quality, which i like a lot, as i like watching dvds and tv through my pc.
a couple of things i like to mention, 1, the design of this card(fans drawing air through the raditor from behind) makes this the easyist card to clean dust away from radiator no fans in way or anoying case that restrics the way to clean dust away, so very practical.
2, you will need a very well aired case as all hot air is ported away from card from in case rather than out, im useing a level 10 gt case, so i do not have this issue, as average air temp in my case while playing games hours on end, is only 35c(f1 2011, crysis 2, black ops,n4s the run) all games listed here on max settings gtx gpu temps was between 62c-73c, which is a lot better than referance cards of same model running around 87c-97c on same games.

GTX 580 Phantom

I originally purchases the 1.5gb version but due to it being out of stock I opted for the phantom version. Overclockers was great and gave me FREE next day before noon shipping due to the stock error.
This card is actually smaller than my old card in length and weight. (ATI 4870x2).
This card is so worth the few extra

Monster BF3 Killer...

Bought this the other day to play BF3 on.. and it rocks! It chews through BF3 on Ultra High settings as smooth as eggs..

bought the i5 @4.4 Bundle with 8GB of RAM as well, and a XFX 750 PSU to put in my ANTEC 902 case, and it all fits perfectly.

Great Service from OClockers (recieved next day) Couldn't be happier

worth every star

next day delivery as always.

fits perfectly into my rig.

silent, and so so so powerful.

can't go wrong with this one :)

It's Big!

It's big, beautiful and very quiet. I can run Star Craft II with all the graphics on max and still get over 100FPS. But, it's big, it takes up over 2x slots and it's so long I had to move my HDDs to a different part of the case. but, if you can fit it in you can't go wrong!

Extremely quiet an cool !!!

This card runs extremely quiet comparing to my previous one (gainward gtx 580 good edition).The core temperature on idle is approx 38-40 degrees,after 2 hours playing BFBC2 on highest avaliable settings core was reaching 60 degrees,which is I think very good result. I going to get another one for 2 way sli on asus maximus 4 extreme. Be carefull as it takes 2.5 slot...!
