If Unoriginal Sin is correct (and I'd say that he is, otherwise he wouldn't be taking his time to say these things), then I'd go with the Gigabyte 680 he mentioned. Brand loyalty is cool, but sometimes brand loyalty has to be thrown out the window. It sounds like this DirectCU II is just not good enough for the GTX 680. I mean, it sounds like ASUS didn't take the time to make a better version of it even though they should have.
So I'm saying that it sounds like the cooler on the Gigabyte 680 is better for the 680 than the DirectCU II is. I'd even go as far as saying that it sounds to me like it is possible that ASUS shouldn't even be using the DirectCU II for the GTX 680.
Of course, I am only going by what Unoriginal Sin said. I haven't done any research yet.
