Say Hello to the New GTX 590 Revision

Nvidia has decided to release a new revision of the GTX590 in order to solve problems with the card going up in smoke. The current GTX 590, when used with unsupported drivers (267.52), can literally start smoking. Check out the video below for an example:

As a result, Nvidia has decided to release a new version of the GPU to completely prevent this problem from occurring. This new revision is expected sometime in June. However, the fix requires new inductors, which are larger in size than the previous version. This means that the base plate must be altered, which may render certain third party cooling solutions obsolete. How can you tell if it is the new revision? Check for the -502 marking on the PCB when the time comes.
