GTX560 Twin Frozr II or SOC ? - Page 3

post #21 of 50
the TFII cooler is very good and you'll save 30 euro over a card that can more than likely still OC well.

i'd take it tebh

But id go the SOC
SOC is an excellent choice but then again...I like OC'ing so either one would not matter because performance difference would be sooooo minimal with the max OC of the MSI 560ti. In his case, he should buy the SOC since he wants 1GHz performance

Just found this , about the VRMs

Quote:
Additionally, the redesigning purpose of the card’s VRM circuitry was to distribute better power regulation because the GTX 560 Ti SOC includes a TDP of only 203W, 30W less than what other GTX 560’s require when overclocked to 1GHz. Aside from the SOC edition of the GTX 560, Gigabyte will release the GV-N560OC-1GI with a much milder GPU overclock and its operating frequency being set at 900MHz. It was rumored that the GF114 core can have much higher speeds than the 820MHz set by Nvidia. Gigabyte plans to release the GTX 560 Ti on January 25 for about $280.

agree with the blue PCB, it's horrible !!
My old Gigabyte 8800GT has also a blue PCB ... with a copper Zalman fan on it
Anyway , as I had to "unbox" the audio card of my Maximus Formula III because of the back extra GDDR heatsinks , my HAF932 is all blue inside ... My bedroom is blue if I let my computer turned ON
The power button on my monitor lights blue
The main profile on my Nova X600 mouse lights blue
The LEDs on my case lights blue
The Sapphire logo on my grafic card lights blue
And my old keyboard lights blue (not the Logitech) ...


If the SOC VRMs are really that better than on others GTX560 , i'll certainly go for it !!
