Count my vote for the GTX670 FTW also. It's a reference GTX680 PCB so it should work with most water blocks out there. The stock cooler is reasonably quiet for a blower type - it's much quieter than any other I've had. And the PCB is all black, plus you can get a backplate for it which makes it look very tidy. thumb.gif

The ones I have don't have much for overclocking head room, but it does come with a decent overclock from the factory. I usually get 1228MHz on the core with the maximum Kepler boost.

mine had coil whine but went away after benching valley too many times lol.

The best reason to buy one of those cards is for a multi-monitor (high-res) SLI setup.

I played a couple of games & they had my 670's @ 0FPS.

Here's a vid I made when another guy going off reviews tried saying Sleeping Dogs only used 1400MB @ 1080P with 670's.....

Don't waste your money on a water block for a voltage locked card. These cards run at 1.175 V, which isn't a lot.

Get an ASUS GTX 670 DCII instead, the card is silent and runs cool. Mine ran at around 60°C and was inaudible at a fan speed of 65% (case fans were louder). They usually clock past 1200 MHz. If you don't want to take chances, get a factory overclocked DCII TOP.

A FTW version. I know it's luck of the draw, but the one I just received goes into the 1300s with no bios mod.

Yeah that coil whine can be annoying. Had some on my 7870 Hawk's. If going with a 670 i would go with the PE

Sleeping dogs run perfectly fine and smooth on my 2gb 670 @ 1440p rolleyes.gif

Just get a 2gb unless you HEAVILY mod your games, I can use mods on my 2gb fine but I don't heavily mod either
