G'day folks

I snatched up an eVGA GTX580 (non-overclocked version) the other day and tonight finally got around to trying to fit my old universal Swiftech MCW60 block too it (Which was running on my old Powercolor HD4870, it'd kept that card pretty cool but had issues with achieving a flat mount so the memio temps would skyrocket if it wasn't mounted dead right, until i filed the legs down (upon advice from switftech) so the block pulled in tighter)

I read a few forum posts here and there, some said it fit, some said it didn't, only one 1 post showed it actually mounted on the card so i wasn't 100% sure (i was preparing to buy a new GPU block )

Anyway, i can say with the G80 Mounting Plate, the MCW60 does fit. And here are my results

(I loaded the card with the eVGA OC Scanner utility)
Air Temps - (Stock eVGA Cooler - CPU on Water!)
Idle


Load


Water Temps
Idle


Load (Fans on low/Normal Speed)


Load (Fans on High)


Not a bad drop in temp from the air with pretty much no increase in CPU temps. Plus the GPU only goes up around 5 Degree's from idle to full load.

Oh and heres a couple of quick pictures incase anyone else has a MCW60 (or MCW80, pretty sure they're the same mounting wise) and has a G80 mounting bracket




Any comments are welcome
