I plan on adding another 560ti on in a month or so, and it's definitely going to be another EVGA, these cards are so cheap and effective it's crazy.

Not all of them hit 1000mhz. But many do, yea. Mine does. = D I've seen some only MSI's hit only 985mhz. Seen others of the exact same model and hit 1075mhz. Just the luck of the draw from the bin.

twin frozr is overkill cooling... EVGA reference cooling can cool my 1000MHz clock at full load running 40%, so you're essentially spending the extra $50 dollars or whatever for nothing and losing out on a lifetime warranty? Dunno where the question really is haha...

also the 560 is at a different pricepoint than a reference 6950 2Gb which are the ones you can unlock. 560 ti's are around 230 while 6950 2gb's are around 280+, almost reaching 300 for a reference card since they're so hard to find now.

MSI has the advantage for its cooler, EVGA's advantage is for its lifetime warranty(-AR models). Lifetime warranty matters depending on how long you plan to keep the card and what your experience has been with cards dying.

My point is that even with an outrageous overclock on my reference 560ti, it stays below 75C during a synthetic load with quiet, 40% fan cooling. So why pay more for cooling you don't need, AND pick up a lifetime warranty in the process, while only spending 220-230 dollars for an -AR model?

I personally lean towards EVGA lifetime warranty products(-AR GPUs / -A1 Mobos) for everything. Usually recycling old builds as second systems and if anything dies its covered forever pretty much, if they no longer make your original product they upgrade you to the equivalent or greater in the current generation.

The 5 series are revised Fermis which run much cooler in general, even EVGA's cooler is fine for clocking a 560Ti to 1GHz with decent temps. MSI's cooler is still better.
