So tomorrow I´ll try to to slap the old cooler on it and send it back to where I bought it from, they probably won´t buy it since they do overclocks and custom stuff for customers, but I might as well try.
So would the Gigabyte 670 OC Windforce be they way to go or the Asus (its a bit more expensive but not much...) ?

The Gigabyte IMO

I like the EVGA FTW. It allow you to raise the power target to 145%, which mean that your card will boost (overclock) further. 
They also have a solid warranty, and dont mind you removing the cooler from the card.

This.

I can crank up my FTW cards quite a bit on stock volts, even then still get a decent boost when gaming if I decide to go further. Not to mention mine are barley audible even under load, love'em.

But +1000000000 to EVGA. Waterblocks and aftermarket coolers or backplates with arms wide open. Just gotta keep that stock cooler for RMA purposes. thumb.gif

Edit : Yeah, forgot to mention.. There won't be a bottleneck, period.

Gigabyte Windforce has some great OC ability! Also, i'll hop on the bandwagon and tell you that you wont have bottleneck issues.

+1 for evga ftw edition. They love the aftermarket and dont care what happens as long as when you send it in it looks like it did when it came out of the box. Voltage mods are a no go but everything else is fair game.
