PNY XLR8 liquid cooled GTX 580

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
I'm thinking about the PNY XLR8 liquid cooled GTX 580



http://www.scan.co.uk/products/15gb-...ores-plusfree-

Scan sell this for £390 ex VAT

I know the price/£ is low, but would it still be ok to get it if I love the concept of watercooling but don't want to do a custom loop?
I just don't want to waste my money if it is a huge mistake.

Does anyone know how loud it actually is? Also is the fan changeable?
I have a standard PNY 580, how would the noise compare?

Also would it be possible to fix the cooling issue by using an Antec spot cooler on the hot part of the card?
