Well my 7870XT is overclocked to 7950 territory anyways, and if I understand GPU-boost 2.0 correctly, the ref. 760 won't be able to oc much because the ref fan won't be able to keep it within thermal limits, am I correct?

Whats the reason with going with reference design?

Yeah my 7870XT is also really quiet, that's why I'm worried about the noise on the 760. I'm going with the reference design because the guy I'm trading with owns a reference design card lol. If I had a choice of course I would prefer EVGA or ASUS or MSI.
