Another question..
I'm sorry :p , not very good at this whole graphics card thing.


The 580 retails at 699 and the 570 at 515.

I won't be getting the 580, but would like to learn more, thus the question.

More about : twin frozr 580 twin frozr iii 570

570 is the better bang for the buck. with the twin frozr 3 cooler it can reach 580-like performance with overclocking.

The difference in the performance is not worth the difference in the price.

The GTX 580 has 512 Processor cores & 1.5 GB of memory while the GTX 570 has 480 processor cores and 1.2 GB RAM.

You can OC the GTX 570 to meet the speed of a GTX 580, but you can OC the GTX 580 higher.

There are GTX 570s & 580s that list less than the prices you mention.

The GTX 570 is one heck of a card, but doesn;t match the 580. If $ is the main consideration you can sli GTX 560/ ti's or ti 448's and outrun a GTX 580 in graphic power.

Well. Those prices are listed in sgd. and my main question was on the different cooling solutions employed by msi. Sorry that I did but make that clear in the op.

if you want to compare the coolers, you should have listed the same video card model.

Eniwey, the twin frozr 3/Power Edition has better voltage tweaking. Meaning that in overclocking, it will be more stable than the twin frozr 2. With regards to keeping the card cool, i think they are the same.
