hahaha...wait till reviews are out. If you got no voltage control over 1.2v it's kinda MEH for less performance than 670 sli.

No more ATI mon! They have been assimilated by the AMD warmonger!
Is it or do I see space for a three Radiators... 360, 140 and another 240 at the bottom?

Come join us swaggy... come join us in our watery cause!

Haha assimilated. AMD cards do better in Starcraft II actually.

...and that's before the 780 which will come out later -- just less than Titan performance for a lot less money biggrin.gif - confused yet ?biggrin.gif

But seriously folks, the NVidia Kepler family encompasses a whole bunch of chips from the 6 series to the Titans...sort of like a car manufacturer with various engines on offer which share much of the same architecture such as bore, stroke, valve timing etc....what's different is the number of cylinders and turbos...you want a 4, or straight six, a V8 or a V12 (or for Titan Bugatti fans, a W-16 with quad turbos biggrin.gif )

...paying $500 for a 670 sounds a bit high, even with w-c...in any case, in a well-cooled case SLI 670ies such as Asus Direct CUii don't really need w-cooling in my my experience, only when moving to tri-SLI might it become an issue due to impeded air flow (I will soon find out). In my SLI 670 Asus Direct CUii setup, temps in the GPUs, oc'ed that they are, never exceed high 50ies / low 60ies -- even during major benchmarking such as 3D11, Vantage or Firestrike...intense gaming for an hour is in the low 50ies. Max temp threshold for this card is about 85 C, and throttling starts at 70 C.

If $s are a concern, you might want to find the best deal on a well-cooled 670 solution such as Asus Direct CUii which should run you about $360-$380...if I recall this correctly, you already have a machine with an (EVGA?) 670...you can even for just an afternoon SLI those to find out what you gain...SLI 670, even before they are 'breathed on' represent a very fast combo. (SLI will work across different manufacturers, just not different classes, so 2GB 670 by different manufacturers can be SLI-ed)...see how that works with your favourite games and settings, then make a decision.

Water -cooling GPUs is s.th. I will look at soon, but only because a.) I will be running tri-SLI and b.) I am really looking to get ready for a Titan SLI or tri-SLI later in the year (and distribute the current 670ies across other machines here). Therefore, I am NOT buying 670 custom blocks, but Uni-blocks and some sort of VRM solution I can switch over to Titan later. thumb.gif

Okay guys, I have decided on the 680, after all the testing and taking out the GPUs and putting the other one in, the 680 is the one I have chosen to stick with. I'm sorry to all the people who are rooting for ATI but for me, I really fell in love with the 680.

Here's the outline of why I chose the 680 over the 7970:
The 7970 was obnoxiously loud, like it would probably be louder that 3x my D14...
The 680 looks a whole lot better in my build vs the 7970.
Their performance against each other in games were so close to each other, although the 7970 won in most cases (had 5FPS higher on average)
The 7970 scored a 1074 on Heavens benchmark while the 680 scored a measly 1020 (I just realized I'm listing out why I shouldn't have gone the 680... tongue.gif)

Thank you so much for helping me with my dilemma and I'm sure if I had gone with the 7970 (if it wasn't so loud and ugly); I would've been extremely happy!

To all the people who helped me, I'll be going back into the posts and +rep you all!

Puny human....

I had a 690 installed in my pc for less then 3 hours... got rid of it due to the fact that its memory was not sufficient for my resolution I am playing in my games.

Yea I know... I always have this, like when I was buying my motherboard + CPU, I spent a good 3 hours in MC talking to the worker about which one he recommended. He tried selling me a 3930k... so you know I didn't listen to him... tongue.gif

I really hope the 680's are 6gb cards as well. I would love 6gb of vram man..... 4 would be much better than my 2 but I never utilize more than 1.3 ever rolleyes.gif
post #12310 of 34072
I've used up to 2.3gb at 1080i and 2.8gb 2560x1440.
