Any advantage of 670 on 680 PCB? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
680 for 10-40 more? Sure, why not, I'd go for it depending on the 680

Pros?
  • You get the 680's Vapor-chamber cooling
  • 6 power phases vs 4 (i think)
  • SHOULD allow higher OC'ing

Evga 670 FTW $400

The 680 reference does not have any vapor chamber cooling, the only models to do so are the EVGA 680 FTW and Classified ones. The 670 FTW edition uses essentially all reference 680, I'd only get it over other models myself if you were really wanting a blower style cooler to exhaust the heat.

The above 680 linked is thus exactly the same except with a better chip, different stickers and slightly less lengthy policy with PNY.

Reference so it would be fine, nothing special about it though.

For $440 I'd be very hard pressed to get that over a new 7950/7970, 670 or used 680.

I can get it for $419 at fry's after a rebate. I'm seeing mostly 670s in this range. Is it a good buy at this price?

I tend to avoid fry's like the plague except for small stuff. Not because of the product or prices though, haha.

But there is nothing wrong with going used

If I was going the 670 route again, it'd be the evga 670 ftw model.

Mine boosted itself to 1215mhz stock and oc'd to 1315mhz. Was pretty equal to my 7970 ghz @ 1200mhz at that speed in benches.

Okay so i was mistaken about the 670 FTW's vapor chamber cooling, apparently that's just for the 680 version

but here

The EVGA reference card has 4 phase VRM and stock cooler
The EVGA SC has a 6 phase VRM and improved cooler.
The EVGA FTW has an 8 phase VRM and improved cooler

The larger PCB allows for a larger cooler, which allows for quieter acoustics

mcg75's OC to 1315mhz is pretty darn good, I'd expect anywhere between 1250-1280mhz for your typical overclock for 24/7 gaming. Also, the blower style cooling is a better option if you plan on ever going SLI. It blows all the heat out the back of the case rather than just circulating it back into the case like most other coolers
