Does anybody know if it will fit?

Specifically, I want to buy one of these:

Well the 580 and the 570 are on the same layout and back board but the 570 doesn't have the same ram as the 580, if you look @ the backs of them you can see there 100% the same, same soder paints and all

Hi William,

That is one of the cards that I'm considering to buy. Did the Water Block work? Did you have any issues?

Thanks

I recently purchased 2 of the evga GTX570 Superclocked. The VID-NX580 does not fit that card. Luckily I was able to recover most of my cost by returning them to Amazon but I did not recover all of it. Expensive lesson to learn. And Koolance wasn't very helpful. They will not tell you beforehand if it fits or not. They said it's the customers responsibility to find out from the card manufacturer if the board is in original spec. Jerks.

They are right, you have to know what card you have before you put on a waterblock. If the card is modded in any way then the block will not fit the card. They release the waterblocks when the video cards are first released and they go from their, if a revision needs to be made they will make one. And why try something like that then if the 570 block doesn't fit then it doesn't fit don't risk damaging your card for something that doesn't fit.
