Gainward GTX670 opinions? - Page 4

post #31 of 39
The non phantom looks to be a basic reference card which will heat up just like the EVGA I was talking about. Just don't plan to overclock it and you should be fine. All reference cards are basically the same with a different sticker on them.

Thanks guys.

After looking at all the facts and your posts it seems the Gigabyte 7950 Windforce is the right card for me.

Thanks again.

Just a heads up, I have one of the new Gigabyte 7950's, they are bios locked not hardware locked. just use http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4121#dl, they provide the older F2 bios thats unlocked and a tool for flashing the bios, there's no danger!

All gigabyte 7950's are bios locked only? They're dual bios cards right?

I'd go for the GTX 670. AMD drivers are hit and miss, I went red team for a short while before returning to green and would never go back.

Reference GTX 670's are ok, but theres plenty to choose from in aftermarket designs too. I have 2 x Asus Direct CU II GTX 670's and am blown away by the performance as well as the looks of the card!

Gainward are OK, never owned one but a mate of mine always buys their cards. The reference cards all all much alike apart from the manufacturers sticker.

Hi everyone.

Not to open a new thread, I'm interested in Gainward 670 phantom version. anyone have one? any comments.
what about the cooling/noise in comparison to MSI 670 PE and Gigabyte GV-N670WF2-2GD (windforce 2)?

Currently I have 570 phantom and I was not really impressed with cooling/noise. I didn't have MSI/Gigabyte 570s but I would expect that they are a bit less noisy?

P.S. for me the noise in "idle" is important. I don't care for under load cos there is gonna be noise and that's fine with me.

cheers.

I have MSI 670 PE, and I can say that the cooling solution on the card is great...mine never go above 66C when gaming....@70% fan curve @1280/7200 and @31 C Room Temperature which is hot...if you have a good airflow and good temperature in your chassis and room, then you will get a better temperature than mine....thumb.gif
