PNY tends to have limited releases of their graphics cards and some of them tend to be rather unique, like their new watercooled GTX580.  [H]ard|OCP wanted to test the performance of this cooler in two scenarios, one with only the GTX580 taking advantage of watercooling so that there is hot air from the CPU moving around the case and a second where both the CPU and GPU are watercooled on the same loop.  That makes a fair amount of difference to the amount of ambient heat present in the case, which has an effect on the efficiency of watercooling.  [H]'s results are encouraging but this card does come at a price, $650 for the model that has waterblocks for both your CPU and GPU.  If cooler temperatures and near silent operation are high on your list of requirements then check out what PNY has to offer.

"While PNY is not a name we have talked about when it comes to graphic cards since 2001, these guys are still around. For the most part there is nothing special about its cards, but today we have something that is special from PNY, an out-of-the box water cooled GTX 580. Let's see what it does for us."
