Hi.

Starting to finalize a long-overdue complete system upgrade.

Looking for air-coolers for the GTX 580.

Thank you for your time.

Thee are no aftermarket coolers that I know of (and a GTX 480 aftermarket cooler won't work either), but apparently the stock coolers for the GTX 580s are actually half decent (cooling wise) so keep the stock cooler on until some good aftermarket one come around I say

I wrong see below.

Pity the Accelero is a triple slot solution. I'd say go with the Zalman.
post #8 of 15
Yeah, I'd also go with the Zalman.

I saw a review on Linus Tech Tips and the Gelid was pretty bad, close to the stock cooler and about as loud.

EDIT: From memory and for 480's.

i would go with xtreme plus/zalman

Thanks for the input, guys.

I intend to make my GTX 580 purchase next week.

As CM96 mentioned, I will try the stock cooler at first. At this time of year in the lower ambient temperatures in the Northern hemisphere will help the operating temps... but Imma not gonna count my chickens before they hatch.

I will eventually replace the cooler, or maybe swap over to my Liquid Cooling gear.

Thanks again, and if there are any recommendations that have not been mentioned please feel free to post 'em.
