I had the AXP on my 570, it was very cool.... But strangley Overclocking ability was slightly worse than with stock cooler, i think because of the very weak VRM cooling.

Currently researching some alternate VR cooling options before I put it on my 580.
I thought the issue came down not so much to how well the VRMs were being cooled but rather that there are not enough of them on the 570 considering the amount of power it can potentially draw (especially with OCP off).

Sorry for the confusion !

You are correct in what you say.... but just ignore all that stuff for a moment, the AXP is worse at cooling the VR's than the stock cooler.

There is a review somewhere, i can't find it now though of the AXP vs Thermalright Shaman + VRM-G2 Vs Stock cooling.
For VR'S it went like this...........
1)VRM-G2 with 80mm fan
2)Stock
3)AXP
4)VRM-G2 no fan

I did notice that I needed to lower clocks a tad to be stable at a certain voltage with the AXP, so i presume that was due to the VR's being hotter with the AXP. But of course the trade off is noise... the stock cooler had to be running at like 85% whereas the AXP even at 100% is very quiet.
