    10/10 Techpowerup Review (http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_670_Direct_Cu_II/33.html)


    Hard decision, I can order the EVGA 670 FTW now, or wait for the ASUS Top one, some bad reviews on the TOP edition as of late though.

    *Note* I will be running two of these cards in SLI in the not-too-distant future

    Then do not make the hard decision, Wait and get the MSI 670 Power Edition.

    So 2x MSI GTX 670 Power Editions in SLI would work with my current PSU? They are dual slot cards correct? If so, I should be good?

    Also they are saying 25% better OC with this card because of the triple overvoltage protection and better cooling? So I'd be able to OC these pretty well?

    personally, the only selling point for evga for me was lifetime warranty. now that they've stopped doing it, theyre just overpriced cards with stock coolers and custom stickers. i'd rather go the asus in this round.

    Yeah, I have the room for the ASUS cards, they're supposedly really great 10/10 for the DCII Top Edition cards from them on Techpowerup and beat the GTX 680. Having two ASUS GTX 670 DCII Top Edition in SLI will be amazing..

    Well said, on the topic of over priced cards are the PNY cards lifetime warranty?

    Stock? The GTX 670 FTW card is not reference...

    It has the GTX 680 PCB and cooler (full size and higher performance). A Max TDP of 145%.

    no the cooler is a vapor chamber cooler, one used in the 680 ftw. which is much better than the stock cooler of 680/670

    I saw a few reports of these cards dying. I don't know what to think about that.

    One user on here mentioned an ASUS GTX 670 died in 2 days in another thread.

    Again, I dunno what to think about that.

    No dude...its only the reference gtx 680 pcb and cooling setup. It is not the gtx 680 ftw stuff.

    Wait what? EVGA not doing lifetime warranties anymore? No reason to not get the cards with the better coolers now.

    Getting my 670s in about 3 months, I hope all these issues are sorted out by then.

    hmm i read somewhere that they used the same vapor cooler in the FTW 680. oh well

    yeah they went back to the 3 year standard warranty. i think it costs like $20-40 to have lifetime warranty.

    Hmm I didn't know that...
    Wonder if it had anything to do with the disappearance of BFG and not having to compete with their lifetime warranty anymore...

    they say that for all cards, it's just marketing trick. it will be the same lottery as any other card out there when it comes to OC.
