They seem to have gone extinct..

They aren't sold in-stock anywhere any more, and the only way you're going to find one is just to stalk amazon and ebay and hope one comes up used. 3 weeks ago I saw one on ebay for $90 with free shipping, every so often they appear on amazon for about $125. You just have to wait and get lucky to find one for sale and grab it before someone else does.

There's the amazon page, there's some for sale there but I would strongly suggest not paying those prices. Just be patient and one will come up on ebay after a while. Try your local craigslist.

I did this as well. Found a 560ti matching my model on EBay for $100 new in box so I could run SLI. Agreed that the Amazon prices are often inflated.

Well team I have retired my 560. It is a great card but I have moved on to a 780GTX 6GB SC. I am using it as a desk ornament for now till some one wants it biggrin.gif Thanks for the info you guys have provided. thumb.gif

It's not even too noisy at 100%, but in my big antec 1200 chassis with lots of fans it almost never reaches 70c, and as such the fan usually stays around 65% - 68% and it's just great. That and it is only two-slots wide and could easily run triple-sli just as it is.

That's why I was sort of confused, and probably still am. I don't really understand why EVGA would release two versions.. the FTW that seems.. awesome? and this classified that seems to be.. utter **** in terms of cooling. I'm kinda scratching my head with it. I have mine manually overclocked up to 850 core and 4500 mem, and the performance is so fantastic I'm considering another one for SLI, and possibly a 3rd one. The only reason I'd consider water cooling is if I went tri-SLI and they got hot.

FTW came first, on a reference nvidia cheapo pcb and single fan cooler.
Classified came second, with a significantly superior gtx 480, and a piece of **** cooler.
Classified Ultra came third, with the gtx 580 pcb, and the reference gtx 580 cooler.

Also, 850MHz is a mild overclock. The one 560ti 448 I kept does 925MHz on stock volts with the stock piece of **** cooler.

I've ended up having to return my EVGA 560ti-448 to EVGA because it was crashing during some games and then later during every game. They sent me a gtx-660 instead.. which I don't like and I'm selling to a friend, and getting a pair of EVGA GTX-470 hydro copper instead, picked em up for $110.

So.. I don't own the 560ti any more sadly. From everything I've found online though, essentially the gtx-470's were almost the same card and core, so the 560ti-448 was just a re-named gtx-470? Exact same nvidia core, same transistor count, same power draw.

Close, but not quite.
Originally the GTX 4xx series cards was *supposed* to be released on the 32nm TSMC process. TSMC missed their mark and scrapped 32nm completely and said they would stay on 40nm, and then move directly to 28nm.

Because of this, GTX 4xx series was horribly optimized, and it created lots of waste heat, and could not clock very fast as a result. The base clockspeed was about 600MHz.

GTX 5xx series is the same Fermi core, but reworked correctly to be on 40nm process. This reduced operating voltage, and heat. That's why the base clockspeed of the EVGA 560ti 448 is 797MHz. Almost 200 full MHz more.

Do not expect those hydro copper versions to perform like your old 560ti 448. In fact, two 470's will probably perform worse than the 660 you have in anything that does not support SLI.

This is pretty off topic for this thread, but now that I have em running. Both of my 470's clock up to 850 mhz core with a minor voltage bump and run flawless. And they're significantly faster in SLI-capable games (I can't find many games that don't support SLI, or can be forced into it with programs), than either my 560ti-448 or my gtx-660 were, they even exceed the gtx-660 in all directX-10 games I ran. So.. I have no need for my 660 I got back from EVGA, selling it to a friend for $150 and getting my 470's free. ^_^ Anyway, so long and good luck with your 560ti's folks.

Can't. There are a number of reasons why. Foremost that one of the screws holding it all together, on all three cards, is stripped completely... Seems there's a mfg defect in the unisink and it makes screwing one particular screw in nearly impossible. I got all three screws in, but they are not coming out.

I call hax! I can only get mine to 920 or so and 2000mhz mem on a EVGA Classified Ultra with 1.163v.

Just tested at 1.213v and I still can't go any higher. o.O
