Gainward Gtx 570 Phantom or EVGA GTX 570 SC??? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
The Phantom is in league with the DCU2 and TF3. Fantastic air cooler! Plus it uses a non-ref pcb with 8+1 power phases. No competition imo.

I wish it was available in the states

Evga just lanched a 570 classified wich is way better than refference one.
Yea, the classified is sweet. It is non-reference, but it is reference style so it will still work with full cover water blocks. I wish I could afford a couple of those cards. Too expensive.

I'd personally avoid Gainward mate. While it looks good and is a nice card, their warranty period is only 2 years and it is extremely strict in terms of what you can do with the card and such. I'd look into an MSI or Gigabyte SoC (amazing card) which are also fairly priced.

The EVGA reference is ok, but the non-reference cards are much better overclockers and the cooling is much better also.
