See the link in my sig!!
BTW, dx11 wont eat ur card :/ Who came up with that anyway!!
Think before u post!
I paid about 60$ extra for the 2GB version
stock cooling is amazing
better than my AC S1 Rev.2 w/ the VR001 HS AND a Zalman PCI double slot blower!!
The fins are nice and dense , and the RAM, Mosfets are cool AND heatsinked!
Along with the triple overvoltage!
MY Vram is running at 1600MHz from the stock of 1250 is it ??
Yes but you have Twin Frozr one, and it has 2 coolers while mine one has 1

You'd be looking at stronger cards then !
dx11 doesn't eat VRAM :/
dx11 is just an API
And more efficient htan previous DX's ..
The same job runs faster in DX 11 than in DX 9 . there's a fact for you!
It's AA , AF, SSAO!! These take up the extra VRAM! High resolution maps!!
Not directx11 in itself ( we are still talking about games..) .

THis , sir , is incorrect, don't just jump on the bandwagon :

Don't get the reference card..
Noisy , run hot , and the unlocking is no longer a guaranteed win on either ref/ non ref cards!!
With decent ambients, the stock TF3 cooler will keep the card below 90C EVEN ON 1.27VCore yaya !! And that's usually enough to hit 1GHz on the core (unlocked)

They really exaggerate case airflow .
Any one with a single gfx card would benefit maybe 1-2C and that's it, on going from say a 430 elite to an HAF 932!!
The 912 is a good mix of both worlds.
I feel real stupid having bough the 922 :/ And that's considering I have a Heka x3 AMD backup rig and a CM SCOUT!! It's an epic cabinet.
If you haven't already bought the 912, have a look at the scout. Except for the bland front panel ( it begs some spray paint, water reservoirs and touch panel fan controllers!) airflow is amazing, all black inside, windowed, some fringe benifits ( storm guard and all that actually are pretty well though out for LAN parties ) and enough space and airflow for tri 6950 CFX!!
Also b loody mobile is what!

Planning on modding the side and mobo tray with carbon fiber and all. Upsetting when the 922 cost more than the 912 and offered not much more :/
Not like I was running cfx or something @__@
The plus was a step down ? Get the one with USB 3.0 and the side window ^__^ WIN!

UPDATE get the direct CU IFF the TF's and not source-able.

So i should go with Asus DirectCU II 1 GB ?
BTW, you're right with DX 11 post, i knew that too just forgot to post it
And also, here is something what guru3d said
Code:
So first off, did you guys check the difference in-between the 1GB and 2GB 6950 versions as well, yeah ... the results are nearly NIL. The added benefit of an extra full GB is excruciatingly hard to measure, even with all games setup with the best image quality settings, hefty shaders and massive textures. The reality is that for 98% of you with today's games 1 GB is absolutely sufficient.

Why would you opt 2GB you might ask yourself ? Well, there are several scenarios, first off very simply, being future proof. In time games will be more demanding when it comes to things like texture requirements. But a more important reason would be multi Monitor gaming, thus Eyefinity. It's there where you breach any foreseeable limitation versus resolution and that's where the extra memory can come into play.
http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon...0-ti-review/18

So i still think that 1 GB will be enough.
And by the way, this card is 11.5 inches long while HAF 912 Plus without HDD cage can support up to 15.6 inches of long GPU's so WIN
Thanks

So you've already bought the HAF ??
Cause I have the scout and the HAF 922..
My advice is OFC to stick with the scout for a ton of reasons!

These cards are small..
The 4890 was one big card.. :/
so was the 5970 , ah well.

AGain , try to get the 2GB one IF the price difference is not big
These cards handle AA and AF very well..and texture maps too.
So you WILL end up wanting the 2GB later,,
Tge 2gb i8s
gtg sorry dog on the computer!

Nope, i have not bought HAF 912 Plus since i said that i am currently buying my first custom gaming PC
And BTW, Storm Scout + TF MSI card will bring me 70 euros more unfortunately
And, accurately without HDD cage is 15.4 inches card long
Anyway, thanks

Bump......
post #18 of 19
All I WILL say , going out on a limb here, is that a scout , and a TF3 will keep you so MUCH happier in the long run
I have the scout and the haf 922 ( and thats more fans thant you're 912 ) but the storm scout PAWNS!!! It really does, and is excellent VFM ..
BUT, 70 Euros is a LOT .. you're better off getting better RAM for that amount.

better spent elsewhere.. sure there's no better deal for you out there ???

And a BUMP needs at least 24 hours in b/w unless OFC you edit the tpid to urgent and state the closing time before which you MUST buy your stuff.
