Which 770 card/cooler to get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so after many months of scraping and saving I am just about ready to order the stuff for my new build.....wheee.gif ya I know about dam time but ordering all at once ends up costing less shipping charges.

Anyway the last thing I am looking at is a 770 but with so many cooling options out there I am not sure which one to get...I want to get the card with the best cooling choice bar none since this is going to be put in a Fractal Design Define XL R2 w/ an AIO mounted on top keeping the card cool is top priory. I have set aside $450 cdn for the Video card

Basically the way I see this is there are 3X options.
  • ASUS GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II
  • MSI GeForce GTX 770 OC Twin Frozr IV
  • Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 OC (WindForce)

So the long and short of it is which one cools the best?

After taking a quick look at the source doc it seems that the ASUS is the cooler of the 3X.....interesting

Anyone know if they fixed the bending issue they were having with the DirectCU II? I am a little hesitant based on that fact
