The Gigabyte cooling will walk all over that reference cooler and it will be quieter to boot. As far as OC headroom goes, the difference will probably be fairly minimal.

The Gigabyte one for sure. For graphics cards theyre great, plus 3 fans is always better than 1.

Gigabyte card will run cooler and quieter. As for OC headroom it is more of a luck of the draw situation.
