[GTX 560 TI] Twin Frozr vs Gigabyte Windforce

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I've decided on pretty much everything in my new build except which GTX 560 I should go for. It's basically standing between the MSI Twin Frozr and the Gigabyte version of the GPU.

Since I will be building a custom ITX case size is a big issue and I haven't been able to figure out their lenghts (everywhere I look the information is different) so it would be awesome if you could help me out.

tl;dr:

How long are the cards?

Which one is the best?

the gigabyte is shorter at 229mm, but if the twin frozr cools better and has better power delivery i would go for that, imo the tf looks nicer.

You should get the ti hawk version if you can, it's clocked the highest and still has a good value.

Hmmm, are you sure the Gigabyte one is 9"? On their website it says 241mm (http://www.gigabyte.se/products/prod...px?pid=3707#sp). Is the Twin Frozr 240mm long with the aluminum bit sticking out or? Because if it is you could just power up the dremmel and gain a couple of milimeters
