If this works and all 8 are unlocked, then wow...
it'd be turning it into a Gigabyte 680 OC edition, as I understand it.

But I can't believe that gigabyte would throw a 680 worthy chip into a card that sells at $100 less for them. Especially with the 680 still sold out.

Well it is avaliable on newegg now, I would expect plenty of people to be grabbing them up now.

We will soon see if OP is lying or not.

Yeah from what i've read 670's are lasercut, just like 570gtx or 560Ti 448core.

Search function didn't help, and I'm not wading through 70 pages.

Whats the noise / cooling on the gigabyte 670 like? I was planning on waiting till MSi threw their twin frozr card out there, but now I'm not sure the wait is worth it.

I mean the gain is minimal at best, even at worst.

I could barely notice any noise from the fans during the benchmarks or games ive played. Its fair to say that they operate quieter then your stock CPU fan! As for the cooling, i havent really been keeping my eye on it but from memory its sitting around the 25cel mark when its idle.

Just being able to do it would be awesome though I, as well as many here on OCN, are "tinkerers" regardless of the reason.

Not exactly. A specific clutch of games out there support 'hardware' aka 'gpu' physics calcs via the PhysX API that the Forceware package installs. When you play one of these games (some examples are: Mirrors Edge, Batman AA/AC, Mafia 2, and Alice:Madness Returns), the game can use your nV card to do the physX processing INSTEAD of the CPU. It typically enables much higher 'levels' of physics effects to be chosen in the game options, and then you see extra effects/more complex details in the game.
Now, you can run the physX either on your main rendering card, or on a 'dedicated' card, which is what the other poster was suggesting using your 9800GTX for. Obviously running a dedicated card allows the main card to focus on rendering, so in many cases you'll get higher FPS when running a dedicated physX card, but it depends somewhat on how demanding the game is to begin with.
Many people will say it's not worth it to 'buy' a card for physX and that's usually true, but if you have a suitable card laying around (and a 9800GTX is decent level of card to use for physX), it doesn't hurt to try it. But keep in mind that it ONLY does something when playing one of the games that supports hardware physX. And there's not that many of those.
Here's a pretty good demo video showing the difference in Mafia 2. Helps if you run 1080p and maximize the video. Keep your on eye on the 'shrapnel' effects and how long the chunks of wall that get blown off persist in the game world with PhysX on High. If you tried to run High PhysX on your CPU, that game would run at like 10fps ...

Hmm, I have a GTX 580 Lightning "just laying around". Do you think that'd be a suitable PhysX card in combination with my CF 7970's??? tongue.gif
