[TCMagazine] Gigabyte to release another WindForce 2X-cooled GeForce GTX 560 Ti - Page 2

post #11 of 14
The first 560 windforce is one of the few 560's that come with ramsinks and a VRM heatsink right?

Hope they don't do away with them..

The Gigabyte Windforce card should be as stable as any other non-reference card. Maybe they are using the newest drivers,which I have heard has some bugs.

What drivers are you using?

It's most likely the same cooler,but Gigabyte possibly changed something with the design of the card.

Same here,those PWM fans are very quiet,though my card makes a hissing noise in BFBC2,is my GTX560Ti bad?

The Windforce 560Ti has VRM and ramsinks? I didn't see any ramsinks on the parts of the card where the cooler doesnt cover the PCB and there are visible RAM chips.

Mine has served me well - after RMA'ing it two times in a two week span. I had to do that because the first two cards were unstable at the factory OC'ed settings. Not only that, but my current third card is not being used because a month after having it the fan fell off of it!!!!!!!

I was thinking of RMA'ing it again, but thought that since this one is an actually stable card at the OC'ed clocks, I would water cool it instead.

It actually might not, I was looking into buying one a while back and I remember from my googling finding a PCB shot showing it has a VRM sink and ramsinks.. Maybe that was just a review sample or I'm just completely confused and wrong

EDIT: I didn't imagine it at least
