Anyone have an ideas where I can find some sort of watercooled heatsink for the VRM of the 550 Tis?

Great write up! I'm in the process of buying parts for my build and was looking at the MSI 550 ti cyclone II with the intention of buying another for SLI soon. Now I think I'm going to go with the 560 ti.

Thanks everybody. I have not gotten the watercooling equipment that I ordered so further testing is on pause.

Pretty interesting comparison, though i predicted the outcome. Hell, SLI 450's cannot beat a 560 Ti, thought a 550 can only match it

I got an 550 Ti for Cheap and since i am limited to a budget for my rig another 550 is probably my choice for the near future and since i don't have experience with SLI i will have some fun with that as well.

Nice to see how it compares to the 560. If i had the money i would buy the 560 or even better since i am an NVidia fan but i like my steak once a week lol.
