Check this review out.

I got the 670 ftw in the end cause it was cheaper than most 7970's even discounted ones at $360...Plus I like EVGA and don't know of any equivalent brand for AMD cards...

Is there a significant benefit to overclocking the GPU memory?

Good to know. Thanks!

Might benefit from that if you bench or play vram intensive games, like modded Skyrim.
For our cards it'll be pretty useful cause it's the only limitation they really have (besides the limited overclocking headroom cause of locked voltage)

I just got my EVGA gtx 670 ftw today. For some reason gpu-z says its PCI-E1.1 x 16, even under load. Can someone help me figure this out?

Doesn't make any sense..
Looking at my pc now trough Nvidia Inspector it reports my bios as 80.04.31.00.58
However, Just checked out the bios I backed up (Haven't done any flashing) and reports GV-N670OC-2G.F12

Then with what you just reported, your bios is in the F10 range (F12). Why doesn't it make sense?
Use the VGA@BIOS utility to confirm.

@makesithappen

Check BIOS version using GB VGA @BIOS utility.

Seems you already have the latest BIOS. There are two versions, F4 and F12. The card can take only one of those, not both. But since yours is reporting .F12, means your card came with the latest BIOS. You don't have to update.

@spinjam

Nice WF3 there thumb.gif Now set a custom fan profile and check your max in Unigine. Let it run for 3-4 loops or ~ 10 minutes to determine complete stability.
