Anyways, here are some pics of it and comparing to my old 570.
Sweet, its here! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It came with a huge poster... maybe next time it can come with a fan that works right?

Yeah, I just ran it through a quick 3Dmark11 run, and it sounds awful. I guess I'll go ahead and contact EVGA. Hopefully I can get a new one pretty quickly.

Nice, hopefully your fans don't sound like mine. Loving the power of this card though, very fast for the price tag.

Not loud, just makes a lot of motor noise, like a high frequency ticking. Its more annoying than regular air moving loud.

I would RMA those jokers. EVGA pretty good with that. Ticking doesn't sound right to me...

I can't it anymore. Must take the plunge.
Is it safe to say a single 670 will best 2x MSI GTX 460 clyclone's in SLI?
post #150 of 3566
Thinking about ordering one off newegg. So I see EVGA Gigabyte MSI and Galaxy (who are they?). Which one of these is the quietest and best performing?
