Galaxy 58NLH5HS3PXZ GTX 580 vs Asus DirectCU II GTX 580 vs MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 580

Which one is the best? And by the best I mean OC's good, stays quite, and stays cool.

Galaxy GTX 580

Asus DirectCU II GTX 580

MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 580

I'm leaning towards the galaxy right now, it's $414 after rebates, has really good reviews, and it comes with an Artic Cooling HSF. According to the reviews it stays nice and cool, and is very quiet, but I wanted your guy's opinions too.

I would also favor the Galaxy. The cooler that comes with it is one of the best (by far) that you can get as far as air cooling goes.

That said, I've never used any Galaxy products and I'm unfamiliar with how well they handle warranties/rebates/customer service. Perhaps someone else can chime in on that subject.

I chose the ASUS over the Galaxy because it looks so much better. I knew I wasn't going to go SLI so triple slot didn't matter. My overall goal was to get something that was extremely quiet. I've owned it for several months now and only being able to compare it to a GTX470 from EVGA I can say it's near silent.

My temps average at 30c idle and 55c on load.

The Asus and the Galaxy would fit inside a Corsair 650D right? I'm planning to get probably either the DirectCU II GTX 580 or the Galaxy 580, and the H80 CPU Cooler. Would my build be pretty quiet? Like, I know it's not going to be silent, but it will be pretty good in terms of noise right?

I'm pretty sure I'd get the 650D, I just hope everything will stay cool enough, maybe I should opt for the HAF X instead...idk.

Galaxy cards are fine but their customer support is horrible.

The 650D will fit any of those cards just fine.

I've just ordered the asus for what that's worth.
All the reviews I've read have been glowing in praise for it.

If you don't plan on SLI then either the Galaxy or the Asus will be excellent, there are difficult to SLI though as you still do really need a slot of space for them to breath so you'd need a mobo like mine with four slots between PCIe slots. But in terms of noise both will be excellent and should be more than quiet enough for you, they will likely be quieter than the H80.

I think I'll get the Galaxy, mainly because it is cheaper and seems to be just as good if not better...

Does anyone here even have the Galaxy? I'm wondering how it will look...

Blue PCB with grey back plate. The back plate also has yellow lettering on it. Remember, that's what you will see when its in your case. Some people don't mind at all though.
