Asus 6970 DirectCu II vs ref 6970 + Xtreme Plus

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for a single card setup, so size not an issue, I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices. The cost is pretty much the same. I'm after a quiet and cool solution, and I will be overclocking. The only thing that makes me hesitate with the ref 6970 + Xtreme Plus cooler is that I read mixed things about VRM temps.
Opinions?

If you want to get a generally higher overclock, then go for the ASUS card, it will cool the GPU and VRMs nicely.
With the ref card, its pretty much hit or miss as they aren't binned, but the Xtreme Plus will keep it cooler.
