Is the twin frozr version necessary to maintain a high OC?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Disregard my sig rig, i'm building a new rig and the max i can spend is $1000, but it come sout to 1,010 when shipped, and i'm wondering should i sacrifice the $250 560ti twin frozr II for something like the evga version which is like $20 cheaper? I doubt i'd let it stay at 1ghz 24/7 maybe 975 can the evga do that or just cards like the twin frozr's? Here's my potential rig

The two 560Tis in my sig rig cost $199.99 each after MIR and I run them 24X7 at 900 Mhz with stock voltages of 1.000. I know I can increase the voltages and the clock and come out with a stable OC, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

On edit: The temps stayed at ~70C with the current OC at 100% load for the ten days of the CC.

but how are the temps? I'm tempted to go twin frozr because i want them as cool as possible while hitting high OC's, but i'm barely over my budget.

This is almost the exact same as the twinfrozer

I edited my post to say that I ran at ~70C for the ten days of the Chimp Challenge with full load and my 24X7 OC with a stock voltage of 1.000.

Yep, that's the card I got for $199.99 each after a $30 rebate from my local CompUSA (was $229.99 before the rebate).

Ah that's lookin pretty nice, i stayed away from it because i've never really heard anything about galaxy before.

edit: is the evga 560ti worse because it only has 1 fan? The galaxy one is kinda ugly

The reference cooler can actually be pretty competent at keeping temperatures acceptable on high overclocks, the only downside is it will get loud and a custom fan profile will be running it pretty fast.

The Twin Frozr II will get lower temperatures and be more quiet, but won't necessarily allow you to overclock higher... It will be more pleasant though with less noise.

If sound and higher temperatures (but still acceptable) doesn't bother you, the reference should be okay. Otherwise, a Twin Frozr II is a great choice.

I have the EVGA ones and they overclock decently. I'm stable at everything with a core of 950mhz. Temps stay at or below 70c with a good fan profile...

Ah i see what i did wrong now, i choose the twin frozr II oc version, so i just choose the regular non oc'd twin frozr II and that fits my price range fine, i like OC'ing it myself anyways, thanks for all the help all!
