Another question... My rig current is GTX 670 and Phenom X6 II 1055T. Is my CPU bottlenecking the performance noticeably?

It's difficult to say with certainty, however it has been shown in various reviews that AMD's CPUs are more likely to bottleneck a high-end video card than Intel's CPUs. This is more likely with more objects with physics being calculated at once (RTS games, Skyrim, etc.) than with fewer objects moving around. It can make a difference at any resolution, though it's more likely to make a larger difference in raw frames generated per second at lower resolutions.

Another thing confusing me is my pandaria beta program starts crashing after I have switched the card (was using 7970). My regular WOW runs fine though.

of course by "core voltage" I mean core clock

Edit: Nevermind didn't realize it was several pages behind.

Gigabyte GTX 670 OC has the same pcb as the Gigabyte 680 version, so waterblocks that fit the 680, will fit the 670 too.
