Although this time the problem doesn’t emerge from their part, they’re announcing some type of issue with the GTX 580 from EVGA and their waterblocks.

Since there is no way to know the difference between the old GPUs, the ones featuring IHS, and the new GPUs, the ones without IHS (only a protective shim around the core), due to the fact that they both feature the same product number, it is necessary to remove the heatsink fan assembly to visually inspect the circuit board.

In addition to this, the EK Team also wishes us a “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”, how nice of them.
