Which Distro 7970?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So for the past few weeks I've been thinking of getting 3xXFX BEDD 7970's,
However after some google searches I seen a few threads, even one on this forum here about the VRM being extremely hot.
Although, along with every negative comment, there's a good, so I'm puzzled.

Will 3 XFX BEDD 7970's in an Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard be a little less breathing room than needed,
Or should I go for Sapphire/Gigabyte editions of the 7970?

I seen Gigabyte has a 3 Fan Overclock version which performs generally better than the XFX edition.

Sapphire or Gigabyte (Windforce) should be fine. Or you could wait for the Twin Frozr models to come out.

Any idea when the Twin Frozr is being released?
I won't have the 3 cards until maybe 3 months,
As my paycheck from work is every month

I think the 7950 TFIII is out in Europe. Haven't seen anything about the 7970, though.
