Which hd 7950? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
do whatever you wish, but if you notice my second post, the 2 coolers look identical other than the plastic shell...
if you are too bored to setup your own fan profile (only in case the stock looks noisy to you) ok pay the 20 euros, it's your choice...

Personally if I were that worried about max performance I'd go for the Asus version, its cooler is much better than the PCS one...
And this is what I will actually do, I will check prices in 2 weeks and if the Asus DirectCU is only ~10 euros more expensive I'll go for that... If not then it will be the MSI TF3 or the Sapphire Dual-X probably...

and to prove my point :

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7950-review-benchmark,3207-10.html

here you can see the PCS cooler is nothing special compared to the others, it's simply an OK cooler with fan speeds tuned for quiet operation (that's why it does not cool tht great, but you can do that with any card)

and here is a review of the other powercolor :

http://www.tbreak.ae/reviews/powercolor-hd7950-3gb-boost-state-review

It's a bad review, very small, but you can see it says it's tvery quiet...
