I like my DirectCU, but the build design of my HAWK is much better. The heatsink on the DirectCU feels cheap even though it does a good job. For me they run about the same temperatures but the DirectCU is indeed quieter.

Highest I've had both of them is 1.18v and they were fine but temperatures got too high(I have a higher than average ambient).

The DirectCU has a VRM Heatsink on Half of the VRM's, the other half is uncovered. And nah, I don't bother with memory temperatures as I don't overclock my memory high since it only benefits very little performance increases.

Well I certainly don't want a cheap feeling component. Although my old sapphire 4670 felt cheap but was GREAT.

one gigahertz is an unrealistic figure maybe there are some golden chips which could reach that level without going off......

ah ok thanks
there is a £10 difference between Asus and Hawk so not sure.

Galaxy GTX460 White Edition is one of the best GTX460s around.
Link:http://www.galaxytechus.com/usa/productview.aspx?id=144

Out of the box, it comes in at 850/1000/1700 at stock 1.087v.
At this stock voltage, it goes up to at least 950/1125/1900.

If its bios is modded to give 1.187v, it goes to 1000/1200/2000.
If its already excellent heatsink is replaced by Icy Vision, it goes further to 1010/1250/2020.
Very good overclocking potential due to its 6+8pin, ultra high grade capacitors, beefy heatsinks...etc

2 drawbacks: limited availability in North America and high price (US$240?). If you are in North America and are interested, call Galaxy's tool free number to see if you can order one?

Some end users' test:
