If you already order ASUS card, keep it. For me it's not worth pay extra $40, for ALMOST same performance.
I checked N670 is 21 Mhz higher than DC2OG based on boost clock. I guess I ordered an expensive card. frown.gif

DC2OG

N670

Does that Mhz make any differences in games? Actually why there are boost clock and base clock? What do they mean? Is that mean that's the number I can get for boost clock after overclocking?

The NON TOP clocks to 1250mhz on new drivers (it used to do 1300mhz with older drivers) , the OC Gamer only reaches 1172mhz before it crashes.

If they are the same price, go for an original NON TOP model. The OC Gamer isnt a bad card, i probably just didn't get lucky on the silicone lottery on this occasion with my new card.

In SLI though they are fantastic, i just keep clocks out of sync, run both at their maximum stable OC and performance is amazing. Probably would have been annoyed if the OC Gamer was my only card.
Actually I want to order DC2G but it was out of stock so I went with DC2OG. Can I play the latest games with all the settings maxed out smoothly if I don't overclock DC2OG?

Indeed you can. I had a single GTX 670 for a year before buying a second and it runs everything great!

To put it into perspective, here's a chart i made to compare stock gtx 670, sli 670 and overclocked sli 670. As you can see overclocking the cards only added about 7fps which in the grand scheme of things isn't much.

Difference between 1189mhz and 1250mhz on a single card is probably a few FPS so hardly too much to worry about. You will most likely get a minimum of 1180mhz on the core if you overclock which is plenty good enough to run any game on the market at the moment.

In SLI they are even better, 50% of my games see a 50% performance increase, the others get 90%+ increase!!

Simply put , you bought the QUIETEST and one of the coolest cards out there , don't be trifled by things such as "24mhz" difference , my Asus GTX 670 DC2 non OG and non TOP was said to reach a boost clock of 980 but instead the kepler bust takes it up to 1081 smile.gif I haven't even OC'd my card and i'm maxing out everything i throw at it ! I'm pretty sure you'll love your card and you'll find it to be a worthy investment thumb.gif cheers!

No, the card you've ordered is a very good card. Don't worry about boost clock though. You probably will get a good card with boost 1.2 Ghz (maybe) smile.gif, OR If you think that the card is expensive, you can cancel your order and get another card.

For me, when you increase the core clock, it will boost your "MIN" FPS. For example when you run your card at stock, let's say you get 300 FPS, with MIN FPS 120 FPS, once you overclock your card, the MIN FPS will be 130 (more or less).

Boost Clock means the minimal gain/value "Overclock" you will get WITHOUT increase anything. For Example, boost clock for 670 PE is 1097, that means once you run the card, it will automatically run AT 1097 OR Higher, WITHOUT change anything (Core offset, etc). (I'm sorry for my BAD explanation, since English isn't my NATIVE Language, sometimes it's quite hard for me to explain, hope you understand what I mean).

What do you mean by kepler bust? Sounds like you're trying to console me LOL.

What do you mean by "You probably will get a good card with boost 1.2 Ghz"? It's too late already because the card is delivering on the way.

It depends on a "silicon lottery" though, the boost clock is different from one card to the others even with the SAME models. For Example my card got 1150 Mhz out of the box, while the other people WITH the same card as mine, got 1200 Mhz.

Boost clock is what your card will run at under stress (100% usage) you increase this value when overclocking to go higher when the system needs the power. When its lower use or idle it will downclock to cool the card and save power.

'Keplar' boost is another thing most cards dont mention so say the box says a boost clock of 900mhz, you will actually get more like 1100mhz because of the way the Keplar (gtx 600 series) works. So basically your card will run quicker i real life than it states on the box.

All gtx 600 seriesc do this including the card you have just bought. He was just making a point if you dont overclock your still going to get a great performing card either way as it boosts by itself when required. A bit like automatic overclocking.

Every card is different even if they are same make / model, its called the silicone lottery, its pure luck if you recieve a good overclocking card or a bad one. It depends how it was manufactured. Either way your card will be great, you will love it.

So the boost clock of every graphics cards posted at Asus website is not accurate and is just for reference only?

exactly , depending on the temps the kepler boost will take the card at around 1081 if the room is really warm ( which is my case ) or it can take the card up to 1150+in a really cool room
