SLI 470's STOCK vs 470's Custom Cooled

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am looking to boost up my performance for crysis 2 and I want to get another 470, but mine is stock cooled, I was wondering what kind of theoretical performance boost I would get if I went with sli 470's with better heatsinks like these.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...ies.html#blank

Or should I just take my stock evga gtx 470, and run that in SLI.

So my question is why kind of performance boost would i get for my 120$

Crysis 2 is not even out. That cooler is not as good for GTX470. The the Zalman one.

it would allow you to use more voltage so you can overclock them farther
post #4 of 20
there is no difference in sli 470 stock vs sli 470 custom cooled. UNLESS you overclock it

Well you could OC a little more, I'm all for it!
But with slot spacing watch out, you're making your 470(s) into 3 slot cards with those.
I would go water, but looking at my sig you can probably tell "that's just me."

An aftermarket cooler won't DIRECTLY influence performance. It's not like you can put a cooler on and instantly get better framerates.

What happens is that you get better temperatures, thus can overclock higher, and then you get better framerates.
