It's the kind of clock speeds that can't be done on a GTX580 without a voltage increase first of all, and not exactly recommended while still air cooled....
one thing to add...the stock cooler isn't too bad considering the difference in temps between the two...i guess it did have a big o/c on the gigabyte..but still...not bad stock cooler..i am expecting a lot less in temps from a customer cooler though..
