I would think this would be the same for the 680.

Well after watching this sweet Newegg review on the Gigabyte 670 Windforce3X I think your logic is flawed. According to the experts at Newegg, the Gigabyte 670 ran 3dMark11 Extreme @ 60C. While this an excellent temperature Newegg decided not to give us the ambient so that we can accurately judge for ourselves. Also, the MSI GTX 670PE (which the TF4 is installed) is clocked at a higher speed then the Gigabyte. Unless you OC them clock for clock then your numbers will not be fair. This is the reason why I decided to do this comparison in the first place. I have both cards (Lightning and TOP) so I OC them clock for clock, volt for volt so that I could accurately judge which was better. Now since I do not have a 680 with a Windforce3X cooler I can not accurately judge which one out of the three is better. The WF could be better since it has three fans but more doesn't mean better. I thought for sure that the DCII would perform way better then it did since it was a triple slot but that was not the case. Now, if some one would like to send me a WF 680 I would love to compare it with the other two. smile.gif

I did find a good review on the MSI GTX 670PE that showed the WF outperforming it on the temperature side (PE 70C, WF 65C) . But, if you look in the small print it says "GPU temperature will vary depending on clocks, voltage, cooler design and production variances.

Nope.

The cooler isn't as good, and it is also voltage locked, and the 680 windforce only has 5 power phases.

Both the DC2 and TF4 are superior.

Not true, I went from the Asus DC2 to the Windforce and the windforce runs a tad cooler than the DC2 card while not making as much noise.

1325core and 600+mem with the fan set at a silent 50% results in 48-49c load temps running heaven demo maxed out at 1920X1080.

I would say its every bit as good as either of those 2 coolers and perhaps even better considering it has 3 fans and a max rpm of 5500-5600.

Yeah but thats comparing the PCB's, not the cooler and 5 power phases are plenty enough for a voltage locked card and is actually 1 more phase over referrence.

Until someone comes forward with good hard facts, I guess we can all agree to disagree. smile.gif

I get same temps with fan on 53-55% + ambient 30-31c i bet your room is like 5c cooler at least biggrin.gif

75F and as I mentioned thats with a pretty hefty overclock 1325mhz core and 600+mhz mem. Windforce is a good cooler, especially considering the fact that the windforce 680 now sells at the cost of a reference 680. "actually lower at just $490.00 with the promo code".
