    I literally just finished this testing and posted it moments ago in my build log. This is using the 580 EK black acetal - NE water-blocks, EK backplates, EK dual pump-top (D5s in serial), 2 XSPC 360 rads, EK res, yada yada. I don't know much of anything about the koolance blocks but I can at least offer some raw data of a system that just went up Nov 26 and probably still has plenty of bubbles in it yet to be cleared.
  2. I'm not trying to insult you or anything, but when you make a question, just make one thread and post ALL of your questions there. Its neater and makes it helluva lot easier to find.

    Anyway, look at this graph. It shows the GTX 480, however the GTX 580 and the 480 are basically the same; (Despite some temperature differences) so Waterblocks will provide the same performance.
