Decisions for GTX 570

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am trying to decide which GTX 570 to get. I'm currently looking at a stock EVGA, ASUS ENGTX570, or the MSI Twin Frozr. I'm drawn to the MSI because of the cooler design since it should provide better overall temps. However, my main concern is the card's ability to overclock. I haven't seen too many people post up things about the Twin Frozr GTX570 (I see plenty on the 560).

If anyone would like to share their experience or opinions on which I should get, hit me. I'm not really worried about lifetime warranties because I won't have the card for all the long (usually upgrade about once a year as of late).

Well, I have the twin frozr on my gtx 465 and I would agree the temps are great. The card is actually much quieter too. I'm not sure about the OCing ability though. My personal preference would be the MSI, or the EVGA.

Stock EVGA, personally I am not very impressed by the non reference 570s or 580s, save for the overpriced hydrocopper.

The Palit cards with the heatsink over the fans (I forget the name) look pretty cool. Not a fan of the ASUS or MSI custom boards though.

Why not get EVGA's new GTX 570 HD PCB is only 9 inch the cooler is quieter and also cools better...

I'm in the same position, right now the one that is most interesting to me is the EVGA SC 570 but its sold out on newegg, so I'll have to check TD or other sites for it.. if its worth getting that is

While I do understand your concern about OC the fact that MSI is using military spec components is what gets my attention. Of course there is also EVGA giving lifetime warranty.

I was under the impression that the 570 twin frozr is still a reference card with only a different cooler.

Other than that, it's all pretty much luck of the draw. My evga vanilla clocks a lot better than my gigabyte. It can reach higher clocks with less voltage and higher clocks with equal voltage. Also, the memory clocks a lot higher on the evga than the gigabyte. I don't see a SC model clocking any higher than my vanilla just because it's SC. IF it does, it's pure luck.

This, please don't pay extra for a slight factory over clock. Go with the EVGA if you think you will take advantage of the step up program. If not, I'd go with the Asus for the transferable warranty so it'll be easier to sell when you upgrade.
