I Need A 4GB 670!!! (Or 2...)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Alright guys. I'm planning a new computer build, and I'm thinking of buying 2 Nvidia cards. The 670 seems like a viable option for me, because it is going to be a workstation / gaming hybrid... The 670 handles just fine at gaming, and the extra cuda cores aren't really necessary for video rendering... So the 670's are my best choice.

However, I will eventually be running 2 2560 x 1440 monitors (in my dream setup), so I'm really thinking that 4gb of ram might be beneficial for me... The problem is that all of the 4gb 670's use the standard PCB, and those (watercooled) would look tiny in my build.

So, what I need is a 4gb 670 on the 680 PCB... And it needs to be reference, so that the EK 680 waterblock will fit on it.

I found this, but I'm not sure if it's a reference 680 size...

So you saying you need a 670 that fits on a EK 680 waterblock? Anyways why not just get a EK 670 waterblock.

Sorry to bring this old thread up. But is this board a completely reference 680 PCB?

Yeah, but it has 4gb of memory instead of 2. So, will a plain normal reference 680 block fit it?

i believe that is unlikely

 

Why dont you get the Evga 670 4GB with the backplate?

The 680 Waterblock fits on a 670 Ftw 2GB, so it should still fit a 4GB.

That was my second idea. The only thing I don't like about the 670 is the looks. Because the board is tiny, and when watercooled, it looks puny... But I don't really need the slight boost of the 680. So, the 670 on a 680 PCB would be awesome for me. Plus the VRM is probably better on the 680 PCB ones.

That was kinda my thought. I think they either use more dense ram chips, or the extra ones are on the back. I'll give it a shot, I guess.

Unless you're sold on Nvidia, a pair of 7970's do much better at higher resolutions (this is coming from an Nvidia fanboy btw)
