Great customer service. Hassel free RMA. If they card you purchased is no longer being made you get the equivilant in new series they offer.

If you buy the 560Ti and in three years it takes a dump and they don't have 560Ti's in stock you end up with a 700 or 800 series of same performance. From those that I've read on EVGA's forum, the old dual GPU's no longer being made were replaced with a GTX 590 as example.

All -KR products purchased ON or AFTER January 1st, 2011 include a 3 year limited warranty from the date of purchase. Registration is recommended. Optional Extended Warranty and Step-Up™ eligibility are offered for purchase upon product registration of a -KR part number within 30 days of the purchase date.
This includes the following suffixes: -K1, -K2, -KR

Products purchased ON or AFTER November 1, 2006 MUST be registered within 30 days of the ORIGINAL DATE OF PURCHASE to receive EVGA's Free Extended Warranty. All products not registered within 30 days will ONLY receive a 1 year limited warranty. Refer to the following suffix guide to identify the length of your warranty:
Limited Lifetime: -A1, -A2, -A3, -A4, -AR, -AX, -CR, -CX, -DX, -FR, -FX, -SG, -SX
Limited 5 Year: -GR
Limited 3 Year: -K1, -K2, -KR (Before 1/1/11)
Limited 2 Year: -LA, -LE, -LR, -LX, -T1, -T2, -TR, -TX
Limited 1 Year: -B1, -BR, -BX, -DR
Limited 90 Day: -RX (Recertified parts)

I ordered 2 EVGA GTX 560 Ti's yesterday to build my new sig rig with. You can't go wrong with EVGA! Very good company and I've never heard of them not honoring their warranties.

agreed. i've heard plenty of good experiences with EVGA as a whole, throughout all their departments.

any 3 of the GTX 560 Ti card makers, would be an excellent choice from what i'm seeing here.

just depends on my preference, as in . sacrifice low temps & noise for lifetime warranty . or sacrifice lifetime warranty for low temps & noise.

whichever card i decide to pick, i can't go wrong can i? unless i choose something else completely different =P

decision is hard.

i would just buy the msi 560 ti. you really won't go wrong with it. also the msi 560 ti runs cooler than the asus.

plus they changed the design (look at my thread) so i think that should be the deal sealer

I had a Twin Frozr II in crossfire AMD 6870 series. They were sweet cards. I switched when I decided to go 3D gaming and movies.

I haven't owned the Asus DCII cards but I've read many owner post and they love em too.

No real wrong choice as it boils down to the GTX 560 Ti's performance and that's the real bottom line. All three vendors have something to offer. Guess that's why it's hard to make the decision.

In general mid-level cards are usually switched out within a 3 yr time frame unless you SLI/Crossfire them anyway. As for high end cards they last longer as gaming catches up with them and in SLI/Crossfire have a lot more longevity. Two 580's now can take you four years which is past others warranty. A lot of money to spend without a security blanket.

As for the poster for 560 Ti's his choice would depend on if he wants hot air exhaust out the rear air flow bracket or if it matters or not if it's being dumped inside the case. If he's got good air ventilation then the non-reference cards are a great choice.

Good luck bud, and please post back after you pulled the trigger as I always like to know which way the OP decision turns out.

i would prefer the hot air exhaust to blow out the rear air flow bracket,

i wouldn't recommend it to myself for more hot air being dumped into my case.

oh, and arizonian , i PM'ed you back.

still got questions on how to identify a non-reference between a reference card.

this paycheck went to bills =P
maybe i can get 1 560 Ti now, and another later . maybe not . i will see.
next paycheck, in a couple weeks, i will for sure pull the trigger, as for now, i'm trying to be patient and see if any sales come up with the 560 Ti's

*Different story for a different topic on a different thread*
i currently have a Hyper 212+ , i think i may have to re-seed it. my temps are at 40C , and this hot summer weather is making it idle at 46-47C , when i'm playing BC2 , it hits 55C - 57C.

at the beginning, my idle temps were around 31-32C , now its a lot higher, barely hitting about the 40'sC when running on a full load. even now with my side panel open, and my tower fan in my room , blowing at a corner in the direction of the inside of my computer, it sits at 40C . i believe my case has good airflow , just sorry ass fans that does the job.

Your mother board.



You have
2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 ( x16 mode )
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 ( x8 mode )
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 ( x4 mode )
2 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 1 x PCI

Your best option is to put the GPU's in PCIe x16 slots but you have a choice for spacing.

Gigabyte motherboard home page.

Here is your manual. GA-890FXA-UD5

Your board is sideways, I'll go in order.

The very first white slot is a PCIEx1.

The second slot is the long blue one which is your first PCIex16 slot and the first slot your GPU goes into.

The third slot is another small white slot which is another PCIex1.

The fourth slot is the long blue one again which is your second PCIex16 slot and the second card should go into that one. You'll have them sandwiched together.

The third long blue slot is a PCIex4 slot.

The last and fourth long blue slot is your PCIex8 slot and technically you can put your second card into that slot to give yourself some spacing and allow for air.

I've not done this but from what I've read there is little to no difference if it's in the x16 or x8 PCIe slot. In fact if you go tri SLI your board can do all three cards.

That last longer white slot is a PCIe slot. No big deal to cover anyway.

This make sense? You don't have to sandwich your GPU's if you don't want. Check out page 7 of your manual and you'll see it. Personally I'd place them into both x16 slots either way.

Hey, I just noticed that the pics no longer show the name imprinted on the pcb side of the PCIe slot whether it's Nvidia or the vendor name?

I checked Newegg and also the vendors directly.

Wonder why they are putting a black strip on it in the pics?

That's how the OP can tell if it's a non-reference or reference card for sure.

Anyone know why they started to do this?

+1 for your descriptive explanation

yeah, i saw that, cause atm right now i have the side panel open, and i can see directly inside it. i saw that the x16_slot 1 & x16_slot 2 are right next to each other with a x1_slot 2 was in the middle of the 2 slots.

there was a post in this thread, that said the slots will run as half due to an SLI hack to the drivers. there would be a decrease in performance due to SLI hack. i kinda do believe there is a decrease in performance from the SLI due to the hack. im not sure of what kind of decrease, but i will do more research into that.

if true, i would want them both in the x16_slots . then i will see if there is a difference in performance by putting a card into the x8_slot after.
