From what I've read, the Asus DirectCU II offers the best cooling and lowest noise. Aside from that, any of those are pretty good.

OP why don't you go for the Sapphire HD 7870 XT with boost which uses the Tahiti LE chip. 10% faster than HD 7870. good dual x cooler. same price as HD 7870 cards.

Hi again, i am from Greece.
I will try to fill my config later because right now i don't have enough time.

Here is a quick info ( CPU : i7 3770k , PSU : Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 600W Monitor : LG 1920x1080 )

Just found some threads on MSI's forums that some owners of MSI R7870-2GD5T/OC had problems with fans speed,
so i doubt to buy MSI R7870-2GD5T/OC

I really don't care about the clocks, i know Tahiti LE chip is faster than Pitcairn, i only want to know is which of these 3 ( i reject MSI R7870-2GD5T/OC ) cards will has the lowest temperature and noise.

Thanks for your time.
