Non-reference so there is no fullcover block for it. For the reference cards, look for the turbine cooler and/or the nvidia logo on the pcb where the pcie connector is.

Though, that is a nice card and makes a good alternative to the noisy reference turbine cooler if you don't plan to go water.

Reference "turbine" cooler:

Btw, use this site, it gives you a good idea of what has a waterblock available since EK is one of the very few that does non-reference blocks (Danger Den is the only other one I could think of atm):

(Thanks wermad for your help)

My opinion on the EVGA GTX 570HD 2.5GB for multiple monitors like your planning on getting is a very solid choice.

It's not the best over clocker as it dosen't have a high ceiling for over voltage which will get you higher over clocks.

If it's doing the job well with multiple monitors due to having higher VRAM and an over clock without over voltage then go for it.

If you were to stay on a single monitor then the extra VRAM wouldn't do anything for you as anything past 1.2GB is more than is needed in currrent games. Even the more intense graphics games.

Without any over volting and just taking the card to higher OC your not going to hurt it and won't end up with the VRM issue.

Under water your also going to keep temps down for your SLI and possible TRI_SLI set up.

It's up to you if you want a huge over clock that requires higher voltage to aquire it and keep it stable. Question is how much gain is that higher over clock really going to give you? To me it's marginal and the higher VRAM on multiple monitors will out weigh having a less over clock over a non-reference 1.2GB card that can over clock higher.

If I was going multiple monitors, having more VRAM would be higher priority than being able to squeeze 5%-10% over clock by over volting your card. That's just me.

PS - Join the EVGA forums and in the 500 Series section post your question. As everyone there is an EVGA owner and I know you'll find your answer there. Post your specs and your question with conerns.

if you have an MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II, it will fit a full cover block as it's a reference design as well. you can always sell the TFII cooler to someone else looking for an upgrade smile.gif

Is that only 2 6 pin PCI-e power connectors? I thought all GTX 570s came with 1x 8 pin and 1x 6 pin, like the reference design shown a few posts above.

Wermad showed 580 PCB smile.gif

Reference 570 PCB from Asus:
front_small.jpg

Also, I remember the TDP being cited as somewhere around 219W, then it should have enough power with 225W (2x6pin +PCIe slot)

reference 580 PCB:

that's the only difference yeah, for all intents, 570 and 580 FC waterblocks would be equal.
