Asus 670 DirectCU II TOP - Page 182

post #1811 of 2693
out of curiosity has anyone applied the new bios update to a NON top card to make it a TOP model? If so, was it stable?

Daryl if your card is clocking 1300 I would leave it be... Massive risk for minimal reward if you flash

I have also to tell you that here in France the price between the TOP and non TOP version is 70€ (= $88.2).
Non TOP is 419€ ($527.94), and TOP is 489€ ($616.14)
And also, is the factory OC 1137Mhz with GPU Boost enabled or not ?
Thank you all ! smile.gif

The factory OC does not include the GPU Boost, so final GPU clock speeds are going to be higher. Mine was originally 1255 MHz at full load.

If I had to choose between the TOP or non-TOP, I would get the non-TOP. My TOP that I have originally had stability issues right out of the box (currently running -15 MHz GPU offset). The non-TOP is cheaper and has less chance of stability issues at stock speeds due to its lower clocks. The only difference between the TOP and non-TOP are clock speeds (the PCB, heatsink cooler, backplate are the same between the two).

However, if I were going SLI, I would probably get the EVGA FTW to avoid re-circulating warm air between the two graphics cards.

But is it an overclocking beast? How about its cooling?

Well, I ended up replacing the TIM on my cards and it shaved a few degrees off my temps. The thermal paste was really caked on. I was surprised by the results. I haven't seen replacing the tim on a card make that much of a difference in a while.

Its the same card, I don't see why it wouldn't be. I would rather just overclock manually, personally.

I have 2 top's in SLI and they were running fine but now I'm starting to see heaps of artifacts in bf3. I've taken them back to stock speeds and turned adaptive vsync off. I brought a Logitech g510 keyboard to keep track of temps and clocks as I'm playing and these cards are over the place in game. They stay at around 1084 for a while then they shoot up to max then 1 will stay at 1267 and the bottom card will drop to 1084. And there's about 10 degrees different between them when they are at these weird clocks. But the artifacts sorry me, Wat are the odds of a card starting to fail after a few weeks of use?
