from what i can see in the video, it looks 6+2 to me...

looks cool while it's running though!

oh well, i guess you can't go wrong getting the classified, it has a lifetime warranty, even if it does blow up, you should get a brand spanking new one anyway. just hope it doesn't run too hot and loud, that cooler looks very similar to a reference design...

Alright I think i'm going with the Classified because of the lifetime warranty. Thanks a lot for your help.

image name says its for twin frozr III. I was under the impression that the TFII was still a reference card with TF cooler on it and the TFIII had a custom pcb.

I personally think there is too much hoopla over how many phase these cards have. Most likely the TFIII, DCII and classy all clock similarly and the average joe won't see or notice the benefit of extra phases. An incident that happened about 6 months ago and people still go on claiming that 570's blow up. My reference card still works to this day and has seen some very high clocks.

What it should come down to is warranty, and cooling ability. If you plan on keeping the card for several years, then the classy is a good option. I personally like the 3 year warranty on the asus and msi because it makes it easier to sell and does not need to be registered. I'll never keep a card over 3 years.

After 3 years you are not going to have the card either way. Its like having 8800GTS now.

that was a tfiii pcb, tfii is indeed reference

i think the ones that did blow up were put under too much volts...oh well, more phases surely doesn't hurt, may not notice in terms of overclock, but should handle volts much better

I'm also considering replacing my EVGA GTX 470 SC for a GTX 570, but not sure which one to go with. The two that I've been eyeing are MSI's TFIII and EVGA's Classified models. Perhaps the TFIII's are the way to go for cooler and silent operation? Btw, how does warranty work for MSI if it is serial based? I'm just wondering since I'll be selling whatever card I get when Kepler hits the seen.
