I'm going with MSI simply because the Twin Frozr II looks bad ass compared to anything other than the generic stock style heatsink.

I went Twin Frozr II mainly because I heard great things about the previous gen ones.. in the end though I think it boils down to the best warrantys. MSI's isn't terrible but isn't the best.

Pretty sure that's marketing gimmick. Have you seen how many MSI boards have busted, exploded, caught fire?! I know owners like their Frozr editions, and their cards from MSI, but military grade components my arse.

yeah gigabyte SOC of course
I also like the Galaxy's White Edition best, not only for the metallic shroud and the white colour but more for its quality components (eg 6+8 Pin ensures sufficient power for overclocking, MLCCs, NEC Proadlizers...)

This D:

I've been trying to stop myself from buying that.. I could get the DirectCU or SOC for £20 cheaper but... it's so.. beautiful ;x
post #19 of 109
I'm in a bit of a tight spot... I'm on the verge of selling my GTX 480 in favor of a 560, so I need to make a decision on which to buy. I'm seeing some reports of the Twin Frozr not having adequate VRM cooling; I'll be trying to OC the balls off it, so that's a nono.

I'd love to get the SOC; it's obviously a great card to be OC'd to 1GHz out of box, but the thought of waiting for an unknown period of time without a graphics card scares me.

How's the ASUS' cooling? What're noise levels like for each cooler?
post #20 of 109
I went with evga sc for...

-no noise issues
-cooler works well with sli
-large majority of air exhausts outside case
-900mhz
-ram/vrm cooling
-lifetime warranty
-$220 shipped (check newegg for deals)
