  • Conclusion: We still have the same Twin Frozr III heatsink atop the Xtreme Edition as we did in the original Lightning Edition, but this time around the heatsink top is black instead of silver, probably to give more contrast to the purple fans. These new purple fans are what makes the new heatsink so interesting.

MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition Review: What a GTX 580 Should Be

PC Perspective
3 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Tired of hearing about MSI’s latest video cards?  Me neither!  It seems we have been on a roll lately with the latest and greatest from MSI, but happily that will soon change.  In the meantime, we do have another MSI card to go over.  This one is probably the most interesting of the group so far.  It also is very, very expensive for a single GPU product.  This card is obviously not for everyone, but there is a market for such high end parts still.

MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition

17 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Definitivamente a MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition está entre as melhores placas de vídeo baseadas no chip GeForce GTX 580, mas infelizmente fazer uma review dela nesse momento fica um tanto quanto esquisito, por mais que destaque todas suas tecnologias e diferenciais, a nova geração 7900 da AMD ganha na grande maioria dos testes, e acaba ofuscando uma placa excelente.
  • Pros: Excelente acabamento, Ótimo potencial para overclock, Projeto diferenciado com foco em público entusiasta e overclockers, Sistema de cooler "auto-limpante", Baixa temperatura com pouco ruído, Pode ter queda de preço com a chegada da GTX 680, isso se encontrada
  • Cons: Difícil de ser encontrada, Não faz frente a série Radeon 7900, A GeForce GTX 680 está chegando
