I bet there wouldn't be much of a difference. And as far as most people's concern, they couldn't care less. Serious overclockers will put them under water anyways.

Yea guess so. Wonder if the PCB is different. If it's better than the reference 570 one (if its like the 480 for example) then its alright..

Why buy reference when you can have a Twin-Frozr?

I was going to buy one from Scan.co.uk as they are £250 but I was not sure if its a reference PCB, A good non reference PCB or a cheap cut costs non reference PCB.

Has anyone removed the cooler from one of these cards?

It's just a GTX 570 with a 480 cooler slapped onto it. You can't flash a 480 to a 570.

Well there doesn't seem to be a problem using a GF110 core on the 480's PCB.. Now i'm kind of tempted to see if it has a better PCB. I guess if the PCB is better then MSI are really improving it. Maybe MSIalex can clear it up for us.

I'd be happy with it just being a reference PCB with no changes but if it is improved then thats awesome because its one of the cheapest GTX 570's I've seen but untill I know I wont buy
