Cooling solutions manufacturer Danger Den today released their first cooling block for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580. Called simply the DD-GTX580 block, the liquid based cooling solution is a single slot system that fully covers the card and keeps all the major heat components of the of the card.

Danger Den has designed this new cooler in close coordination with Nvidia to tailor-fit it for the world’s fastest GPU. It comes with a monolithic copper base and a black chrome top. The DD-GTX580 has been released in two styles - one comes with a mirrored base finish while the other one is satin copper.

The DD-GTX580 continues the tradition of other Danger Den cooling solutions and provides superior cooling performance. It keeps the GPU nearly 30 to 50 degrees centigrade cooler than the reference card, which is a significant improvement, particularly for extreme gaming. The single loop block also means there is a high flow rate of coolant - ideal for drawing maximum performance from all components.

The design of the DD-GTX580 block has been created such that it covers and cools all the critical components of the card, including the GPU, memory chips, and the VRM on the underside of the PCB.

Danger Den has priced the mirror finish block at $146.95 while the satin copper base one costs $134.95. Both blocks have already started shipping to retailers.

LOL 4 gig ram when empty? im assuming your on about SMP as theres no way classic would use anyware near that when empty. somethings up with your box if mc is running up 4gb usage when empty, ive had it runnin on my main tower (one in my sig) while ive been sorting out what mods and wrapper to run in the new year with 3-4 people in while playing myself and it was hovering around 3gb ram usage total over the entire machine on any of the wrappers on a pretty big world aswell(just under 200mb).

Just started it up and its currently sat at 400mb used using the simpleserver wrapper with no players,





Ill try it again when i get back to the office, It was the preAlpha virsion so i don't know if it has been updated since i last tried it.

Odd a friend of mine has ran a SMP server since about a month after its release on a machine with a fairly basic dualy and 3gb ram (just a small one so the kids could play with there friends ect) and when empty its never been above 4-500mb from what ive seen. Could be worth trying it again if its something your interested in running.

If people want to buy one off me ill host it but i put my old clients in front of them so if it eats ram.. It's a no.

Any way you play the game for about 100 hours then you get board of it...

well i know the windows versions of the hosting software are the most stable, it might be better to run it in an XP vmware if you do decide to as then you can limit the ram usage to X GB

You do need a minimum of 200mbs i believe.

minecraft is a bit odd, you can get mabey 15 players on a 2gb ram dedi or like 100 on a 4gb dedi, yet other hosts give 100 on 8gb dedi but 40 players on 4gb dedi, varys from host to host tbh.

Minecraft server could be cool. Most servers I go onto are VERY laggy because people have opened up so much map.

The only thing annoying about minecraft servers and lag really is if more of the map is open, but also forest fires, some one came onto my server and started a fired that stretched as far as we could see in all directions, so we had to start a new world because the backup of the world went missing :(. ive not had any issues with lag other than that, but now i have restricted lighters n such so fires cant get started, and made sure you have to be a VIP rank to build and stuff to prevent griefing.

its only a 10 slot server, but i welcome anyone from OC3D on there, once ive got an up to date version of the admin mod i use (24th december)
