I'll take a MSI dual fan anyday. Cools great quiet but what sells me over reference is cleaning. Dust in a reference cooler can get real gunked inside the plastic rectangle. Turns into lint trap.

well it depends, the most reliable type of blower cooler is a good copper base + aluminum fins heatsink with a centrifugal blower, like the ones NV's reference Titan uses.
where as some of the cheaper cards has a cheap solid aluminum heatsink that isn't even that great, those usually end up with the noisiest results.

on the other hand, the blower-type can still be further improved, using heatpipes and copper fins instead of a solid chunk of aluminum or copper will work even better.

From what I have heard, the New blower cooler used on the 480 is actually not terrible. Rumor has it it uses a vapor chamber and is actually pretty quiet. Probably compared to the 290x ref. We'll find out in a few days.

well, you are asking which of two products that haven't been released yet will perform better in a game that hasn't been released yet. The short answer is nobody knows.

Wrong.

The answer is NV performs better.

Hey, they flew off the shelves in record time! coolsmiley03.png  

All 30 of them.

Knew this would happen, AMD playing Nvidia Games here when it comes to sale and distribution.

Release tiny amounts onto the market and watch customers fight and bleed, like in a Gladiatorial Fight Scene just to get this product line. The retailers would then start marking the prices upwards, due to limited numbers of this item.

Still waiting for one with a larger fan, for installation into some of my cases.

$50 for reenactment gear and get your ass outdoors. The resolution and realism will blow your mind biggrin.gif Hopefully not literally, don't stick your head into canons.

It does not. Pictures have been around for about a week now. It's a tiny aluminum job, not even heatpipes. People have said it's quiet. But current speculation puts the cooler as the a major bottleneck
