10492 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i5 Processor I5-750,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. P55-UD3R

580 hack SLI so the second card is gimped at 4x. That i5 750 still has balls even to this day.

yea, mine was close to that when I had my CF, now the second card is a paper weight and my whole system is gimping on power as far as the gpu is concerned.

but yea, the 750s are pretty wicked, Im proud of mine, 4.1ghz on only 1.3v is tasty

Before I hit mine with phase I did 4 24/7 around 1.3v too. I say around because I never trusted that board to give me the true voltage (was an eVGA P55 FTW 200).
