msi pe or gigabyte windforce.

My roommate just bought an EVGA, it is very quiet. I mean very!
I am used to hearing my EVGA 480 sound like a freight train...
EVGA did some massive improvements between early Fermi's and Kepler cards. Heat, fans, noise..
GO EVGA! thumb.gif
I will be upgrading very soon!

seems you got the golden card, there is no reason for me to upgrade to 700 series, IF I have that golden card...lol
Edit : I was thinking to follow your offset memory to +250....and I am surprised I can get stable 1333 Mhz @183 Mhz offset....lol....but unfortunately, the score is much lower than my 1320 Mhz, I don't know why. maybe I must OC my Processor into higher?

Hehe. I haven't even really tested the VRam yet either, so it may go up to as high as you had it +663, not sure yet though.

Thanks for the recommendation. Glad to hear EVGA is still doing well with their cards. I have an evga gtx 275 that I've been happy with for a few years. I'll give their 670 card a look. Thanks mate. thumb.gif

EDIT: What kind of EVGA card did he get? I found normal versions, "FTW", and "signature" versions. Still trying to sort out the differences.

I would get the regular edition since the main difference I have seen is the factory overclock. One can adjust the overclock with EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner. The heat sink design and fans are the same. I bought the SC version of the GTX 480 simply because of the deal. I have it bumped to 777Mhz even though my sig is higher. I declocked a bit for heat reasons (hence why I will be getting a 670 sometime soon and that I can run 2 of them on my PSU but thats another discussion.) I would grab the EVGA GTX 670.. best customer reviews.. customer service.. comes highly recommended. That is just me though.. your first question was if it was quiet. I said they are. haha biggrin.gif

I'd grab the FTW cause of the 680 pcb, if not I'd grab a Gigabyte Windforce card...not too fond of Asus customer support, but their DcuII is really good too.rolleyes.gif

A while back when I was first considering a GTX 670, I asked EVGA's Jacob-F what the difference was between the standard and FTW model was. He responded with this.
Quote:
Compared to standard 670, FTW has more solid caps, larger PCB (same as 680) and cooler is 30% better than reference cooler as well.
Between those two EVGA cards, I would have to take the FTW Edition because of the better cooler. It's only $20 more AR from Newegg, and offers several significant advantages.

On the other hand, there are some other awesome brands out there.
  • The Gigabyte Windforce-Serial based warranty, solid customer service, good cooler
  • ASUS DCII-If you ran into problems, I heard there Customer Service is a bit shabby, but the cooler itself is awesome.
  • MSI PE- I currently think this offers a great value for a 670. You get Borderlands 2 and Assaisns 3 if ordered off of newegg for free (So do the other cards), but it's only $369 AR, and offers an amazing air cooler. Downside to this card would be that there is no waterblock for it (I know the DCII and EVGA Cards have one, no clue about the Gigabyte.)

Agreed, MSI PE I think it's cheaper (based on your information), offer an amazing cooler, great performance....and the second 670 I would consider is FTW Edition....I heard in the US, EVGA have the best customer service....Gigabyte Windforce is good, too...but I am sorry that I can't deal with their BLUE PCB.

Although my room temperature is 30 - 33 C (which is hot), MSI card still give me an excellent temperature (66 - 68) Celcius.
