Remember the horror of GeForce GTX 590 going up in smoke while benching? Well, apparently NVIDIA has found a way to solve this issue completely without doing a quick fix through the drivers. The solution :  a much needed hardware fix where the new inductors are added to the card. However, the new inductors are larger in size therefore a change to the baseplate is needed.

What does it mean to the 3rd party cooling solutions especially the GTX 590 waterblocks? Probably back to the drawing board so as to conform to the revised keep outs. The revised GeForce GTX 590 cards denoted with a new -502 marking on the PCB are expected to hit the market in June.
