I am in hunt for 2 6950 cards for crossfire, as 6950 DCII 2GB models are out of stock everywhere (german sites) My priorities are: 1. Silence 2. Performance 3. Stability 4. OCability 5. Temperatures I have these cards in mind: Sapphire 6950 Dirt3 Edition MSI 6950 Twin Frozr II/OC or III/OC Gigabyte 6950 Windforce-3x HIS 6950 Ice Q X Turbo So, which one will be the most silent? I will run 2-way crossfire on a p8p67 Deluxe in a HAF-X case.

When you put them in crossfire the Asus ones will be much hotter because theirs no gap between the cards.With the MSI Twin Frozr's they only take up 2 slots so their will be a slot between each card allowing the top card to breath better. m 0 l jeepster50 a b U Graphics card July 9, 2011 6:21:11 PM If you can't wait till they're back in stock go with the Frozr III, Me ?
