GPU upgrade with certain properties in mind, looking for advice! - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Asus DC II V2 ( 2fans) or Gigabyte Wind Force 3 (3 fans) either one is good so go for the cheapest

I was doing some reading and I came across
an interesting piece of information regarding stability issues with the hynix gddr5 used in the 670, I also read that gigabyte has addresed this while asus don't really care.
Did you hear something about this manner?

(I've read complaints on websites such as toms hardware and newegg. I checked both asus's and gigabyte's product page and gigabyte recently updated their card's bios.
The thing is why should I be risking my brand new card?!)

yoyo, dual or triple fan designs are quieter based on my experience 'cause more fans cool better and they don't have to spin faster to do it. less rpm = less noise. buy already. i had a gigabyte windforce and i had to check sometimes if the fans were working becauser they were so quiet. yes, any fans that go over 50% will make noise - that's a given. however, with more fans come better cooling efficiency.
