Hi,
I am looking forward to buying a GTX 560ti 1GB however, should i get the twin frozr edition or not?
Is it worth the higher price?
I'll be SLI-ing in the future also.
I might be overclocking or maybe not. If overclocking makes it a beast then yes.
This is for awesome games like BF3 and Skyrim at highest settings possible.
Opinions please?
Thanks.

What's the alternative to the Twin Frozr, and what's the price difference? You'll get better temps with the Twin Frozr (of course), which will let you overclock a bit higher without worrying about reaching the temperature limit. Plus, it runs quite a bit quieter than other GPU heatsinks do.

There is the Twin Frozr, Direct CU II, Hawk, and the version from KFA2. Go with the Direct CU version as ASUS has good RMA and their stuff tends to be more reliable (better parts). Any of the above versions will cool better than a stock cooler.

Thank you all for your awesome replies.

The DCII is too expensive for me. x_x
The Twin Frozr is fine.

And yes, cooler temperatures/low noise helps. ^^

EDIT: Though for the Asus DCII, it says GTX 560 ti (Fermi) ... Does that change anything?

EDITx2: The DCII is a bit wayy too expensive for me. I guess i'll go for the twin frozr. Thank you everyone for your opinions.
