New cooler available for Nvidia GTX 580 graphic cards without heatspreader

Recently, GTX 580 cards from EVGA, among others, appeared, which utilise the reference PCB layout, but do not use the common heatspreader on the GPU. This prohibits the use of conventional coolers, as the reduced height creates a gap between GPU and cooler. We embraced the problem and now offer the HEATKILLER® GPU-X³ GTX 570/580 noIHS "Hole Edition", which fits reference-PCB GTX 580 cards without heatspreader. As an additional benefit, the direct contact between cooler and GPU allows the GPU-X³ to utilise even more of his potential, achieving improved temperature readings in internal tests.
