For practicality's sake, which do you think would be my best bet from these two video cards? Which is better and why? I read somewhere that the Twin Frozr III (the Hawk's cooling) is inferior than that of the Twin Frozr II/OC?

I found this thread doing a search that talks about this very topic already started about two weeks ago "MSI 560 ti Twin Frozr II vs MSI 560 ti Hawk". Either way you can't make a mistake as they are both good and will serve you well.
Thanks. So the thread is saying that the tf2 cooler is better than the tf3.

The Hawk is probably a binned chip too.
That's werid, the guru3d review states an opposite observation to that of the thread posted by Arizonian above. What could be the main cause for this?

The TFII will be more quiet, and all most as good as the hawk. The hawk has the VRM cooling sink and also the pcb bracket....

Is their noise difference very significant?

So overall, the Hawk is still the better card?

Hawk is faster/cooler/louder what's not to like ? I think if your GPU is quiet your not using it to it's full ability

Good bet. After doing a TON of research, I ordered two for sli goodness today. At factory oc, almost... as fast as a 570 (with manual oc, faster), and 2 in sli will do fine for me in 1080p for years.
