Heat output, GTX 570 vs 6970?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a new graphic card for my recently built rig to replace the 3 years old 8800GT.

Currently looking at the GTX 570 and 6970. It seems like both cards performs similarly and I don't have a preference between the Red and the Green.

However I do want to have a cooler card since my case is not very good with putting the hot air out and my computer room is pretty small.

Which one do you guys think is a relatively cooler running card? I used my buddy's 5870 for two weeks before and it ran pretty cool...

The 570 is relatively cooler and more quieter.

6970 + accelero extreme plus (check the link in my sig to see how it would look, just as an example)

issue solved tongue.gif

if you dont like that look, heres an index with temperature tests done by someone else :

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/amd_hd6970_hd6950_review/17.htm

stock vs stock, the cards are pretty far apart actually (gpu temp, not heat output, as that would be close by each other or the same) wink.gif but thats why you put a decent air cooler on them.

They run at similar temps.
The GTX570 (reference) runs quieter than the 6970 (reference)
