Will these M3 x 6mm screws fit on a EVGA/Zotac GTX580 reference card, one of the air cooled versions?

Well I got mine all converted to water and installed, Temps at idle are 31c each and under load for 30 minutes with PrecisionX's OC scanner showed the highest temp at 41c so I'm really happy with that compared to the 84c on the top GPU, and 62 on the bottom GPU on air. I swapped out the stock pads and used some Fujitsu extreme .5mm pads and MX-4 on the GPU processors, ram and back ram modules under the backplates. I used M3-8mm screws along with the included nylon washers to hold the backplates on and then EK's M3-4mm screws just around the CPU area, Seems to be working just fine,

Why is your CPU not in the loop?

Because I didnt want to spend an extra 100 bucks for a block for my aging I-7-940. I plan on replacing it and the mobo later this summer anyway to something that will get me near 5 ghz anyway, then I'll water cool it too with a separate AIO possibly. Its going on 3 years old and after 2 1/2 years I was unable to keep it at 3.9ghz, and had to revert to the dummy OC to get it to its current 3.52ghz. The Thermaltake does a great job cooling it anyway. I've never seen the CPU go over 50c when running Pi.

I do have one question about my 3 Scythe GT's though. I'm thinking about swapping them out for these Scythe GT's instead. The AP45's I have now seem to do pretty good with it. They idle at 30 and 31c, and with precisionx's OC scanner for thirty minutes I havent seen the temps go over 43c. Would I see much improvement if I swapped them out for the AP-29's? I'm not worried if they are a little louder. Hell I cant hear the AP-45's as it is now anyway.

You probably would see a difference, but those Typhoons, at 3000 RPM, wouldn't be worth the noise level, for me, at least.
