post #11 of 15
Doesn't TF II put all that hot air into your case though....? I'm asking cause I was thinking of getting one.

I really wish there was a way for me to see really how loud it'll be(the 2gb hd 6950) because even if it doesn't unlock it's still better than the 560 ti and I won't need to OC that much..I'm just wondering if it's unbearably loud at like 60% fan speed or somethin. I really would feel more comfortable with 2gb vram.

GTX 560 Ti - 822 MHz core
6950 - 800MHz core

Average OC for GTX 560 Ti is 950-1000MHz and thats 15-20% OC.

Average OC for 6950 I think is 960MHz for core and thats 20% OC.

So both cards overclocks similar,560 ti doesn't overclock more in general.

On default 6950 is a little faster 5-10%, and it will be faster when both are OC'ed.

Whichever is cheaper, at 1080p, there won't be that large of a difference to fuss over. But I generally shimmy towards aftermarket solutions whenever possible. HAF stands for "High Air Flow", so as long as that acronym stands true, you shouldn't have a problem with a TFII expelling hot air inside your case.

2Gb vs 1Gb at 1080p is a tough one...most games won't saturate it; some will, especially heavily modded. I say a 2Gb 6950. Reference or not. Simply for the insane scaling and security of VRAM in case you ever want to go above 1920x1080.

I have a 6950 1GB Version, it has the dual fans from XFX. She's a beast. OC's to 1000 / 1500, that is 200mhz core and 200mhz memory. I can run the fan at 100% and it's at about the same volume that my old reference 4890 at 40% was. So basically it's not bad at all.

I have the HAF 932 case, I have not added any additional fans and the 6950 does dump heat into the case as well. I've had 0 problems with heat since going to this case. During gaming at the 1000 / 1500 OC I max in the upper 70's (hit 81c the other day when it was 97 degrees outside). 81c is still not a big deal though, I do not worry about temps until it's in the upper 80's.

If your interested in the 6950 I suggest getting a card with a dual fan setup as it will generally stay cooler.

Edit: Forgot to add during most games I run the card at 970 / 1450 since anything over 60 fps is not a huge deal. It generally stays in the low 70's at those speeds.
