GTX 580SLI Cooling
Im looking for a good way to cool these cards
Im thinking a new case is needed for one, im not sure if i should go for water cooling or try getting a new air cooled heatsink.
If i go water cooled i have no idea what i need though.
Any help would be nice

Two 580's in sli make air cooling a bit harder.
You can get these:
But you'd need the cards spaced on far apart pci lanes.
Otherwise, for water cooling you'd need:
2 x GTX 580 waterblocks
1 Radiator to cope with heat (probably at least a 360)
Enough fans for radiator
Plus tubing, about 6 fittings (barbs or compression) and non conductive coolant.
Your case also has to be sympathetic to the radiator, reservoir and pump.
For ease, I'd try the arctic cooling air solution as long as the cards are spaced 4 slots apart. If that's not possible, well, water may be the way to go.
