They're also 3-slot which wouldn't fit on the board he chose.
Also read they're quite heavy, you seen anything about people SLi'ing them? Would assume they'd end up touching eventually.

Yeah, you dont want to sli a flipping 3 slot GPU

Those MSI heatsinks look great....my understanding is that they cool great also.

I know they perform better, but it's more noise and heat (possibly, depends on what 580 models you're going for) and I would rather put a 590 in my sig, then 580 SLI. But that's just me. :P And like Roark said, those cards aren't very good for SLI, and won't with his mobo.

Yeah I'd go with the MSIs.

Also, like Sean said the grease that comes with the Noctua is better than the AS5.
If you want extra just in case I'd get some Tuniq TX-4 or Noctua NT-H1.

I personally think the gene z is overkill. p8z68 pro would be a better choice. If your like the look of the HAF932, you should also look at the HAf X. Its an updated version of the HAF 932.
