Default Re: 3rd Party Cooler For GTX580?

Also the results I just showed you show you are wrong, it's perfectly normal for them to reach the mid to high 80's in games and allot of reviews show this, some don't but I suspect they didn't do enough testing or used furmark, latest versions of furmark run cooler than they should on the GTX580 due to the limiter.

Your results are more unusual than my results..

The cooler is not the problem, I also need to get the The VR004 Kit so I can install it on the GTX580.

All the descriptions i've read suggest you have to buy them seperately, also none of the coolers on OCUK will work on a GTX580
I'm not saying your results are wrong. Clearly if you are testing, then that is what your card is running at. I posted a screen shot of mine running on the auto fan setup in MSI afterburner. Maybe my temps are like that because
A: I have replaced my Intake fan on the case for the GPU's with an Aftermarket B: because SLI doesn't max the cards at 100%.

Still you cannot argue with what my cards are reading temp wise.
