This !

Or is the voltage on the SOC already set beyond the stock one ??

I see that MSI "allow" voltage tweak on the Twin Frozr II , does that mean we don't have to worry about the warranty ?

About the GTX570, it has better perf in only few games and at higher price (quite and correct temp) ...
I can , right now get the INNO3D GTX570 (stock) for 320€ , the Gainward GTX570 Golden Sample (custom cooler and small OC) for 345€

The twin frozer card requires extra vrm cooling to reach 1Ghz.

Just get over the 30-40 dollars for the SOC which you will probably spend afterwards on VRM heatsinks if you buy the MSI.

SOC is already clocked high so you are sure that you are buying a Ferrari and not a Hyndai to which you will try to hotrod the engine and the chassis.

Keep in mind that the cooling on the SOC is quieter at a higher frequency than MSI. That tells you enough.

Get the Gigabyte SOC; I personally wouldn't take the chance with the MSI Twin Frozr II. Getting the Core Clock to it with 1GHz with it is a hit or miss. That, and with the factory over-clock with the SOC you still have a warranty. If you OC the MSI card, you won't.

You can't go wrong with either 1 between the 2. The 560ti SOC is already clocked @ 1GHz out the box with only little headroom for OC'ing. The MSI 560ti is clocked lower but has the headroom to reach the 560ti SOC. At the end of the day, both will reach similar max OCs

The question for you is, do you feel like OC'ing to 1GHz OR would you like to have a gpu that is clocked @ 1GHz out the box ?

No, he must cool the VRMs to get to 1Ghz. So would you like to buy a card clocked where you want it, with highly effective cooling. Or another card with great cooling however, you must by vrm heatsinks. Then OC yourself. Which is half the fun

But id go the SOC

Doing it myself or having it "outof the box" is not really a problem ...
With it being out of the box , I know it IS possible and that it won't burn because of a cooling lack (VRM ?)

I'm quite frutrated from having a poor HD4870 which can not overclock !
Come on that's a freaking Sapphire Vapor-x 2GB !! Not some low class noname-like card ....
Call it "personnal mind medicine" or what , but I don't feel like taking any risk in this process anymore

Anyway I'd like to know more things on the Twin Frozr II and the Gigabyte SOC (brands websites don't tell much) like the number and look of the VRM cooling , GDDR cooling and voltage settings

Thank you guys for all your repply , you are really helping me
