^Draygonn has first hand experience with triple slot coolers so his opinion is invaluable!

The cooler he has will be of similar performance characteristics to the triple slot cooler on the Asus 570 in that they are both very cool and very quiet.

But Draygonn what do you think about what I mentioned, which is that while everything you said about the top cards airflow being obstructed is true, my position that was that with coolers as effective and quiet as your AXP and the triple slot DCII in question that any decreased effectiveness would be measurable, but still not a deal breaker when considering that overall they would still be cool and quiet even not working at peak efficiency?

You are absolutely right. These cards can operate well in less than peak situations. IIRC Hodgoes2001 is running his 480 SLI AXP's 'sandwiched' and with a sidefan he still has good temps.

I really like these ASUS DiretCUII cards for getting more people into triple slot coolers. Now that more cases are coming with 8-10 PCI slots SLI can be more commonplace.

Yea I love triple slot coolers, I was looking for one for a long while actually, first looking at the same sparkle calibre 460 that you were waiting for a loooong time ago then waiting for a sparkle calibre 560 (notice a trend here? LOL) then got this lovely P8P67 Deluxe that can accommodate 2 triple slot cards with a PCIe x1 left for a sound card, then briefly considered the Asus 560 before sucking it up and stepping up to this monster Asus 570 and I couldn't be more satisfied with the card or cooler.

Even if you wanted to go 580, which I think 580 SLI would be pretty expensive and single 580 might be just short of the maximum performance you are looking for, but if you did go 580 I would go Asus 580 rather than MSI TFII 580.

Also looking at that Asus P8P67 WS that Draygonn posted that looks like a very awesome board for $260. I'm not a big fan of the Gigabyte UD7 (other than it's gorgeous looks) but I think that might just be personal preference. I think personally I would go with the Asus WS even over my current board.

Oh and they 590 would actually be a good value if you were considering SLI 580 because the 590 is almost like 580 SLI but with lower clock speeds... and an increased risk of exploding if overclocked. I'm not too up on the whole details of if the 590s are safe at stock clocks but I know there have been more than a few reports of them burning their VRMs or sparking or other bad things you don't want to deal with if they have been overclocked.

OP, I would recommend the 570(s). They are much cheaper than the 580 and with a normal OC they can get to about 95% of STOCK 580 SLI performance. Good bang for the buck, but for safety when OCing don't mess with the voltage.

I actually added the Asus mobo to the shopping cart. As for the 580, should I actually go that way, which is looking more and more likely, it will be the ASUS 580 you linked, any card I get will be sli'ed eventually.

The Asus DCII 570s that are being recommended to him do not have the problem you are referring to, the have more power phases than reference, beefier components in general and greatly improved cooling for both the core and VRMs.

Yea that Asus P8P67 WS looks beastly. and going with the Asus DCII version of whatever card you decide is the way to go without a doubt, the coolers are incredible the quality of the components is high and the price is the same as other less spectacular examples of the same card. Nvidia got lucky this time because the same Asus DCII cooler on the AMD side have like a $60 price premium compared to reference.

The P8P67 WS REVOLUTION was used in a Crossfire/SLI test between P67, X58, and P67 NF200 boards. Not a review of the P8P67 directly, but it did kick arse.

"While the NF200 doesn’t completely solve the dearth of PCIe lanes available on LGA 1155 platforms, its ability to send identical data to multiple cards makes it perfect for SLI and CrossFire. That benefit, when combined with the Sandy Bridge processor’s superior performance and overclocking capabilities, slams the lid on the coffin for X58 gaming. Anyone who needs the added flexibility of X58 to host other devices, such as high-end drive controllers or six-core processors in a workstation environment, must bow to the gaming superiority of NF200-equiped Sandy Bridge motherboards like Asus' P8P67 WS Revolution."
