GTX 570 Classified vs GTX 570 DirectCU II

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Sorry for posting a lot of threads, I just want everything to be perfect when I order. I think the GTX 570 DirectCU II has 8+2 Phase Power and the GTX 570 Classified has 6+2? Should I get the DirectCU II?


EDIT: And I was thinking on going with the EVGA just because it has lifetime warranty and the DirectCU II has 3 years.

i haven't seen any reviews on the classified card yet, but the dcii version will run cooler, quite a bit cooler i think, but then again, the classified version does come with lifetime warranty, if you plan on keeping it for a while then the lifetime warranty definitely worth considering.

if you want sli and a sound card in the future, get the classified. if you don't plan on getting a sound card ever, then the dcii will do sli on your mobo as well. but you lose pretty much all other pci/pcie slots.

dont forget that the DCUII card is a 3 slot graphics card where as the classified is a standard 2 slot. The classified is also biased on the GTX580 PCB and the DCUII is Asus brand PCB (or non reference)

Oh I never thought about the sound card +1. So what about the GTX 570 Classified vs Twin Frozr II?

i was planning on getting a sound card and another 580 dcii for sli, only after a bit of thinking, i realised that dcii + sound card + dcii is not a good idea as all 3 of them will be literally sitting on top of each other...i guess i'll just have to live with onboard sound for a while

anyway, the tfii has a reference pcb (4 phase) which i've heard bad things about, but then again, the cooling ability of tfii should somewhat help even things a little. i think as long as you don't go crazy on voltage, the reference design pcb should be ok, but personally i'd stay away from all reference pcb designs just to be sure. BUT, if you want watercooling in the future, the tfii will have blocks readily available, where as the classified won't...

have you considered the msi 570 twin frozr iii power edition? it's probably the best 570 you can get performance+overclocking wise

I just read somewhere it has 6+1 Phase System and Reference has 4+2. I think the Classfied has 6+2.


EDIT: and the Twin Frozr III is out of stock on newegg right now.

GO for the Twin Frozr III because it has better cooling and serial-based warranty is better than a registration one when you come to sell it off.
