The first question for you is, how good is the airflow in your case? If its not so good, then look at the reference models for externally exhausting fans. If you have pretty good airflow inside your case, then feel free to explore some of the models with aftermarket cooling.

I would have to say, given the options, I would go with a pair of the MSI Twin Frozr III's.

EVGA for any model. Top quality, lifetime warranty and real live people to talk to.

MSI or eVGA. I would recommend the MSI card over the eVGA one because of the superb cooler and hearty overclock / improved PCB.

+1 for MSI as well...

2 fans are better than 1.

Best brand is Evga. their customer service is unbeatable. I remember having a 7950gt that went bad after 2 yrs. I never checked the warranty or anything but Evga took it and gave me a new equivalent without any issue whatsoever. Now that doesn't mean they are the best bang for buck.

Best cards under GTX 570 are asus DCU2 or MSI twin Frozer 3 or Gigabyte windforce or sparkle triple fan card

Msi twinfrozr 570 and an evga 570. Put the twinfrozr card on the bottom and the evga one on the top.

You could skip the SLI route and just buy one Radeon 7970. It would a lot faster then 2 570's in SLI mode.

Just like everyone else has said. Either the evga, or the MSI twin frozer

Are you sure about that? :heink: 







It might only be a small sample but SLi'd 570's kick the crap out of a single 7970.

Meh. The issue with SLI is having too much hot air inside the case. One card spewing heat around will make life harder for the other one, EE or not.

I have a 1c degree difference between my cards when they are running flatout whilst folding and about 5c with with the bottom card idling.

I'm seeing a 1C rise also between the top and bottom cards under OICCT's GPU test w/ twin 560 Ti's OC'd to 1020 MHz .... I just dropped the speed down to 980 MHz as it allows all case fans to run at minimum rpm making it dead silent.

I'm not on my lappie or i could give ya some links but I'd lean to cards with the 6+2 phase VRM....here's one of them

Well they have a grill on the endplates and if I hold my hand at the back of the rig I can feel the air coming out, so they do exhaust something out the back.

Sure, just not exclusively. The point here seems to be that EE isn't too important.

I use NZXT Tempest 210 for now. With Deepcool Windblades as intake and stock fans for exhaust. So, I don't know exactly if the airflow inside the case is good enough to cool 570's. What do you think guys? Do I need to change those fans, to be able to have a good airflow inside the case?

That's a pretty good case IMO... It looks big enough to house everything and still have plenty of space for air to travel. Just as long as you have your wires neatly managed, then you shouldn't have a problem at all.

I do have a Corsair AX750. Fully-modular PSU. So, cable management won't be a problem at all(I guess). And btw, would this PSU be fine w/ GTX 570 SLI?

Here's the rest of the specs of my rig:
i5-2500k @ stock speed(which is 3.3Ghz)
Asus Sabertooth P67 B3
GSkill Ripjaws-X 4GB 1600 CL9
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

That's a SOLID power supply... You should have no problems powering two 570s. The only thing you have to do now is decide which cards you want, add to cart, and wait for them to arrive so you can install them into that beast rig you have!

Ya, that's fine. One other thing I'd add is that it's probably a good idea to get another 4gb of RAM while you can still find a matching set. Mixing sticks often doesn't work, and I think it'll be worth spending a little cash now to avoid having to buy a whole new set when you decide 4gb isn't cutting it anymore.

I had some Palit 2GB 560Tis (same cooler) in SLi, and agree on the rear exhaust but for a different reason:

When you have those dual cards stacked on a motherboard that only has two PCIE slots a 2.5 slot card with the fans in front gets the heat from the bottom card rising straight into those two fans.

It's not bad if you have three slots and can put some distance between them. I tried a 10% OC on them (in a HAF932 with a 1200 Silverstone PSU) and was crashing. They did run fine at stock speeds.

I replaced them with 3GB GTX580s, rear exxhaust, that I don't bother to overclock because they chew through everything at 57X10 anyway.

That's how my cards are arranged and there is still only a 1 or 2 degree difference between them.

LIAR! :non: 

I kid I kid. :love: 

I don't see how that is even possible unless you're talking about at idle though, and have measured temps on a lot of Sli rigs in a lot of high end cases. IIRC 5 degrees is more like what I was seeing.

I still like rear exhaust for GPUs and CPUs though- warmed air should be expelled if possible IMHO.

Could also be that I'm usually measuring on the biggest chips too, usually have their highest end GPUs. I got the 560Tis for the 2GB and 57X10 testing.

Here ya go, similar temps but different fanspeeds. [:mousemonkey:4]
