Here's where i started, a fresh GTX570 Classified RMA.

Removal of the upper fan shroud:

The bare board ready for it's new cooling gear:

The Swifttech unisink installed:

New with the MCW82 and a Coolermaster 80mm cooling fan:

...And the eVGA back plate (i really wish they made a GTX570 Classified back plate):

I'm giving the AC5 a couple of days to bake in before i start doing any major temp testing, but i let BOINC run at 100% GPU and 88% CPU last night for 10 hours, and it capped at 60C, idle temps are around 30C.

That swiftech PCB plate is awesome...but what thermal paste/thermal pad did you use on those VRMs? Looks like they just have the grit paste like thermal paste that I don't think is a thermal pad but still a paste...You should consider making sure the contact on the VRM's are good with whatever thermal pad you use, and thermal pads on the memory chips.

the VRMS's make contact directly with the heatsink (i used AC5), the only thermal pads used are on the memory chips.
