Default GTX 560 Ti OC cooler

Anyone try a AC Twin Turbo Pro on a reference/non-reference GTX 560 Ti?

Sorry if this thread is a reiteration of someone else'.

We got a Gelid Icy for a friends GTX 460 for xmas, but then had to order another mounting kit from Hong Kong to make it work, so I'm worried about the 460/560 mounting holes. The VRM and such don't matter, I just put a heatsink on everything. The Twin Turbo Pro I just pricematched from Canada Computers to NCIX @ $24.99 a piece (reg $49.99 sale $34.99), no extras needed to boot! $8 express shipping for both so it's $32.50 each total. Just hoping someone has done it as I have all but sent payment, looking for confirmation from someone here...

Well no one has insight, but the Icy Vision Rev 2 is $80 shipped and the Xtreme Plus is $100... I'll stand pat for a sale or new item.

The most 560's use the same mounting holes as the 460. They were pin compatible so board partners just used their existing 460 PCBs and dropped 560's in them. Hence the large numbers of non reference models available at launch. So if it fit the 460, it will probably fit the 560 unless you have a weird non reference version.

As for the pricing, if they're in HKD, you have insanely low pricing. If they're in CAD, I don't know where you're getting the prices, the Gelid Icy Vision should only be ~$30+shipping/taxes.

ya i know the 460/560 are the same mounts thats why if someone used either i was good to go, and the icy vision rev 2 has extras so i $49.99 is more than fair, i have bought a rev 1 for $34.99 before plus $10 for the extra kit..
