Good day to all! I would like to know your recommendations as to which cooler can I use for a rig that's meant for animation and hardcore gaming. I already have 2 units in mind, which are Zotac GTX 560 and Zotac GTX 590 but other models are as well welcome as long as the price range is comparable to both models. Thank you very much.
Help me choose between two GTX
Based on my research from different reviews and forums, a dual gtx 560ti in SLI and a single gtx 590 gets almost about the same performance in synthetic benchmarks and in actual in-game tests. The 560ti SLI is slightly better in games, because most of the recently marketed game titles utilizes multi-GPU setups more efficiently. In contrast, the gtx 590 is a little bit faster in synthetic benchmarks such as 3d mark vantage, 3d mark 11, unigine heaven, etc.
In my opinion as I’m a gamer myself, I would lean on the SLI setup because the gtx 590 has less FPS and has only a little headroom for overclocking because when clocked too much past its limits, some heat issues arise.
As for your cooler, the H100 is great since it gets the job done. Just make sure that it will fit your pc casing.
