Which GTX 570? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
Haha thanks guys! Yeah I didn't buy the PSU yet I just put it in for now so I can keep track.

But I have used EVGA ref cards before and I had no probs. Only reason I'm skeptical about the MSI cards is because I was afraid the coolers might take up extra space for SLI or something. If that isn't the case I'd like coolest temps stock cooling without OC.

I am able to lock my MSI TF3 to 40% fan speed(lowest speed you can set) and it never passes 68C, on stock clocks at least.

I was considering this, which is full sized, but notice the superclock one your linked is the same price (though a smaller form factor):

I figure since it's the same price, I might go with the one you linked since I'm assuming superclocks are binned higher ... but if that small form factor effects OC potential, I might just prefer to go with the full sized one. I have a benching station and will use an mcw82, so size is no matter to me at all.
Truthfully, I don't know how the smaller FF affects OCing. I've heard that the smaller one is louder than the normal size - probably have to run the fan faster to keep it cool - so going on that logic, I would think the smaller one would not OC as well. But, I have not personal experience, just my warped logic...

If size does not matter, than don't go with the smaller FF one.

Personally, I think I'm going to wait for the Classified edition to come down in price a little then jump on it!

Like buying a pII 975 and think you are doing better then getting a 955...

Plus a lot of those EVGA ones might be reference cards which will have some glitches.
i kinda agree.....
while taking a gpu its the cooler which counts when it come to overclocking....so in that sense the tf3 is awesome...
and has great build quality too but this is something which evga also has...

ultimately if its overclocking the op is concerned about then get the tf3 gtx 570 from msi....thumb.gif
and about psu...for 1 card u r good to go with corsair tx650 v2 or any other good quality 600 watter for the matter of fact...
for dual card get at least a good quality 750 watter like corsair tx750 v2......
