Does anyone have experience with GIGABYTE GV-N570OC-13I Rev2.0 GeForce GTX 570? It looks like it has an AC Accelero pre-mounted. The total length is 11.1" which is just under the Define R3 limit of 11.5". Does it really fit in that?
How does it compare in noise to the MSI TwinFrozr II or III GTX570?

Your link refers to MSI ;)

Anyway, the GB card uses a proprietary HSF, the mighty Windfart. click

Perhaps browsing this site will give you more clue as to which card is a better choice - click

Not sure if you're still interested, buuuut
I got 2 of these for SLI
They rock!

I was considering the MSI card, but all in all, 3 fans > 2 fans.
And they sure are nice.
I can put both cards to 100%, some people say they're loud, but I run with my case side off all the time, and even if I'm playin BF3 or whatever, I really don't think they're that loud compared to past nvidia/amd cards I've had...
They are very efficient though and run my 30" 2560x1600 res very well with ultra in BF3/skyrim.
The extra pcb and solid caps are def worth it as well, but all in all, I never see the temps go above perhaps 60?
Though I will admit the fan housing (plastic stuff) was vibrating just a little for awhile, drove me nuts, but I finally just screwed it on better. I was nervous about stripping the screw/heatsink it screws into, but alas the vibrating noise is gone. I'm quite pleased.

My buddy got 2 of the MSI's for his rig, he compared them to a vacuum cleaner at 100%. For sure I wouldn't compare these to that lol..
I would say at 100% these sound like uhhh, perhaps an older (quieter) cpu fan at 100%. I think there's a decibel comparison out there I saw if you want hard numbers.
