I can assure you the 670 FTW's cooling is fantastic. At factory settings i loaded at around 53-56. Overclocked i max out(And we are talking like only Metro and Crysis Warhead maxed hear) around 63. In Bf3 I max at around 59-60. Great card. If not this one i would of got the asus TOP for sure.

I can confirm this... I haven't seen my FTW go over 65C with my custom fan profile, max fan was 68% (for a short time at that, usually hovers around 60%) so far and I didn't hear it over my Kuhler 920 while gaming. Room temps were 75F not sure of the case temps, roughly 80F is my estimate.

I wanted a TOP but got sick of waiting and didn't like the reviews.. my FTW overclocked just as well (TOP is 1241 out of the box, my max boost is 1258 and my memory goes well beyond any TOPs I've seen) and reviews show that the cooler performs almost as well and is within a couple of dB. Both the FTW and the TOP have overly modest stock fan profiles out of the box. Both are great cards but I didn't want to risk RMA troubles like many are experiencing due to Asus' inability to understand how Kepler really works.

Those temps sound pretty good, the only thing about the asus TOP cards is some of them seem to be unstable and only the minority seem to break the 1300mhz maximum boost clock.

Gotta admit the TOP looks seriously cool compared to the other two. Looks aside, i think i'm torn between the gigabyte and the FTW. The EVGA card is just over $40 more expensive than the GB, is it really worth it? Ive had both brands before, two of each, and i have to say i think the gigabyte impressed me more. This is simply because of the amazing overclocks i got, and the cool temperatures and quietness of the card. On the other hand the two evga cards i have at the moment are loud, and heat up 78C on a max overclock, fan at 100%. Gotta convince me lads tongue.gif

EDIT: In saying all of that though, i wasnt really dissapointed with the EVGA cards i have at all.

Between the two, as has been said a lot in these forums, if your case can handle hot air being dumped into it, the Gigabyte is a fine choice. If airflow is a concern, the blower style exhaust of the EVGA card may be better. From my observations, I'd go into it with the expectation that both cards will have similar overclocking potential, so it really boils down to luck on that front. On the Gigabyte card, and in typical bell curve fashion, there are a few outstanding OCers (glares at brettjv), a bunch of average ones (my card falls into this camp at 1,250 max), and a few duds.

One thing I will say about the Gigabyte card though, is that it does it's excellent job of cooling VERY quietly. I don't think any reviews of the the FTW are out yet, but based on the blower design, I feel like the EVGA card would show higher dbA from the fan at equal temperature levels. That's just me speculating though and I could be very wrong.

Is the FTW worth the price premium? I say yes, simply due to the excellent product support. If either card has a problem a year from now, there's little doubt that you'd get top notch treatment from EVGA making the price premium worth it. Think of it as buying a bit of insurance.

I chose the Gigabyte card on release day because it appeared to be the clear winner at the time. Today, I would probably still choose it over the other variants assuming it was in stock. I'm that happy with it.

Can I ask you a few questions?
Whats your 3dmark score? - Mine http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3627394
And your current overclock that is absolutely stable?
Mine -

Just interested how other 670's perform

Dude, why you be hatin'?

I can't get this damn thing to 1400 core no matter what I do. This is best I've managed to date ... A measly 1391/3386 ... barely cracked 11K GPU score ... kinda sad, really tongue.gif

Not only that the damn thing was roasting at 54C despite the fan blasting at a tornado-like 56%

Okay, now I'm just being an ass, aren't I biggrin.gif

I vote for Asus TOP because mine was 1280Mhz out of the box and been rock solid stable. thumb.gif
post #58 of 159
I played around briefly with my OC last night on the FTW 670.

1290mhz first try stable.

1315mhz second run stable.

Try for more tonight.

I can't get you a 3D Mark11 score until later tonight, but here is my Heaven score if you want to use that to compare, and max boost clock via AB. Heaven was run at 1080p and max settings.

338

From the AB shot you can see my absolute highest stable boost clock of 1,263.
