Great card, recommended.

Matthew B., Newegg
6 November 2011
  • Summary: I did not buy the card from Newegg, as I got it for about 25% off somewhere else. For the price, I wish a back-plate was included with the card. Since this card does use a reference design, you can easily replace the cooler if you plan on extreme overclocking, or just want a silent cooling solution...
  • Pros: This card is excellent! The GTX 500 series from Nvidia is a great improvement over the GTX 400 series (except for perhaps the GTX 560). This card does have voltage control, just use MSI afterburner; there's no flashing needed. The card runs extremely quiet, even though it's a reference cooler. Wi...
  • Cons: It's very overpriced and you could get a better card for a better price. The warranty is bound to whoever registered the card, so resale value won't be as high.

  • Summary: Unacceptable. I cannot believe I am the first (definitely not the last) to post about this problem.
  • Pros: GTX 580 Lifetime Warantee
  • Cons: Zotac acknowledges (see paste) that this factory "overclocking" is NOT stable with DX11 games. Supposedly they may update the firmware. This is a "HDMI black screen" problem. If you increase the core voltage you fix this. THis is NOT acceptable for a $500 card. I spent 5 hours testing every part ...

still going

Christopher L., Newegg
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Running 2 of these cards on a p67a-ud7-b3 board stacked on top of each other for 10 months. The temps stay cool, I don't hear the cards, I don't get frustrated with the cards, I don't have any driver issues, I don't see loss of frames.
  • Pros: 10 months later and these things are still super charging my gameplay.
  • Cons: None. This was totally worth it.

Great Card

Shawn A., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Summary: The card I replaced with this card was a GTX 460 as much as I think highly of the GTX 460 (especialy for the price) I felt that there was to much compromise turning settings down for playable frame rates with the Zotac GTX 580 I get the eye candy and playable frame rates I am looking for.
  • Pros: Great card, plays everything at max settings with playable frame rates. Zotac's customer service has been excellent for me thanks to Michelle in particular.
  • Cons: Not realy the cards fault but the card does run a bit hot if your computer case doesn't have good air flow. I'm idleing at 50 and using a custom fan profile in after burner I get to 73 under heavy gaming. Price might be a con for some but you do get what you pay for there are alot of cards that "...

Fast and Hot

Benjamin L., Newegg
17 April 2011
  • Summary: Stock cooling is pretty terrible for any SLI config. Make sure you get tons of airflow in your case.
  • Pros: Fast as expected.
  • Cons: Runs too hot in 3-way SLI.

  • Pros: A satisfying purchase. Runs all of my games seamlessly on two 1080p monitors, while keeping a cool <76c under max loads after having ran for hours in a fan cooled case. I can finally run everything I wanted to at max graphics :D
  • Cons: None as of yet, no failures or short comings. Only thing is the price, but if you are willing to drop the extra money, you won't regret it.

best lifetime warranty card out there!

Anonymous, Newegg
14 February 2011
  • Summary: The only thing that sucked for me is the copy of prince of persia: forgotten sands. I already own a copy of it and have give away the one with the card.
  • Pros: If you want the fastest factory overclocked with a lifetime warranty, this is the card for you. Idles at 30c! my gtx 480's would idle in the 50's unless I had 80% fan to cool them into the mid 40's.
  • Cons: A Little pricey for factory overclocking. Should be price matched with evga's factory overclocked cards to compete.

Binned

Christopher L., Newegg
19 January 2011
  • Summary: These things do it. For me they get the job done and with 2560x1600 it is quite the task. Sure you can get other cards but do you really want to turn down the settings on your favorite game?
  • Pros: I have 2 of these in sli configuration. I'm thinking either I'm very lucky or these cards are very very binned. I'm running both my cards at 900 on the core and 1800mhz shader with 2320 memory. My peak temperatures are 78 on avg but I have never seen them rise to 84 C except for once and even the...
  • Cons: A lot of the overclocking software is not completely compatible with these cards yet. I have to run 2, one just for voltage, but then after it's set I close the app down and it sticks. There is a speed limiter on the new gf110 chips but there is a work around for that. The fan is also limited to ...

  • Pros: Card outperformed my old ATI 4870x2 and runs everything on max settings. BE WARN it will increase the temperature in a computer case by at least 5 to 8 degrees.
  • Cons: none

you bought the non-amp!

Anonymous, Newegg
22 December 2010
  • Summary: I have had the zotac gtx 480 in sli and gtx 580 in sli. I much enjoy their prodict as the price range they sell for.
  • Pros: Cobra, you bought the discontinued (at newegg I mean) non-amp version of the card. The non-amp is ZT-50101-10P. Anyhow, I have two of the non amp cards, Very quiet and fast! I can't imagine what the amp version must be like. Also like the lifetime warranty on it. BTW newegg, why are you showing 2...
  • Cons: AMP version is a little pricey for a overclocked card. Should be $10 lower at least.
