The 7970 is nice due to the obvious reasons. I was just looking for a reference PCB for waterblock compatibility.

Don't think it is 7970 pcb. Unless there is another indicator, mine has the 6+6 power connector.

Actually had to RMA. Terrible coil whine. More like a buzzing on any 3D accel content. Didn't even try to overclock. The noise was louder than all my fans. Real shame because temps were very good without a lot of fan noise.

That sucks. It pretty much kills the point in buying the MSI TF3 since the cooler is awful.

So which cards are we left with?

I'm tired of playing the waiting game. Now that the 7900 series come with Crysis 3 and Bioshock Infinite, I'm sold. I just need some help deciding which one to get!

the best value is with the Sapphire HD 7950 boost. excellent dual x cooler. good user reviews. uses a normal HD 7950 PCB.

Does the 7970 PCB really makes that much of a difference? I want to do overclocking but not something crazy like hitting 1300.

thhe HD 7970 PCB helps with extreme overclocking especially if you are watercooling. for average overclocks to 1150 mhz the sapphire HD 7950 boost should do fine. in fact many users are hitting 1100 - 1150 mhz at the stock voltage of 1.25v. thumb.gif
