get the asus dcII or msi tf2, or the gigabyte soc.. those are the best models for overclocking imo, mine runs at 1 ghz core and low temps, check sigVV

I would toss in the MSI Hawk over the MSI Twin Frozr II, but otherwise the list above is a good one. If anyone could ever find the Sparkle Calibre for sale, that would be another great option.

The Hawk comes with the Twin Frozr III cooler and has a higher 950 mhz factory clock (vs. 880 mhz for the TFII). It may also have some extra hardware components for overclocking.

I would still like to see the Twin Frozr II Golden Edition in person though; pure copper throughout the shroud as well as the heatsink.

I have built well over a dozen boxes with the 560 Ti's (EVGA and Asus) and no issues of any kind. Running cool and quiet, never topping 82C under any bench with all case fans on lowest possible rpm (4.8 Ghz on 2500k/2600k) .... fans are inaudible in DF-85 / HAF 932 casea at 900 Mhz .... at 1000, I can hear them on a benchmark (no sound) but not in gaming.

The 900 Mhz versions w/ the oversize coolers are particularly stable when OC'd ... all but one of the Asus ones I have been able to get to 1,000MHz w/ no voltage tweaks....the one needed just a pinch.

^ yeah mine needed a pinch to reach 1 GHZ but not too much imo

Short answer, you shouldn't. The gtx 560 ti is inferior to the 6950 in almost every aspect and generally costs about the same.

^^^^wow you infecting all the threads the i am flagged in now, i think it might be time to quit toms HW all together. The ti oc'ed will crush a 6950, not to mention that a 6950 is crippled under heavy tessellation, thats just not a feature that I'd want to have heading into the future. The blanket statement that you make make above is absolute nonsense, the 6950 wins in some games and loses in others. They both have great oc potential, but personally I prefer the ti for its performance in games that matters to me.

What games, Crysis 2 and Hawx 2? Maybe Lost planet as well?

What about F1 2010 where even the 6870 laughs at it?



For every "strong" Nvidia game, AMD has it's equal. Over the piece the 6950 is the faster card and it's the better card.

Unless heavy tessellation (needless or otherwise) is used. :whistle:

I think you're confusing heavy tessellation with cheat-level tessellation. The 6-series tessellation is quite fine.

I completely agree with you. :??: 

Hey "jjb8675309",

I had a question for you. I too own an Asus DC II GTX 560Ti (not the TOP version) . I though of overclocking it myself.

What are you clock speeds for the 560 Ti and the temps that you maintain on it as well. Just a question!

Thanks for the inquiry and backing me up on that other thread as well, the ASUS DC2 is a great card mine runs at the following specs and with an aggressive fan profile the temps never exceed 71C:

1 ghz core 2200 mem 1.17v

Managed by msi afterburner

The bottom line is that AMD 6 series cards have slightly improved tessellation but for the most part produce significantly less frames compared to their nvidia counterparts under heavy tessellation, its a fact, people can cry about it or except it, yeah heavy tessellation is not used in that many games today but will be in the future imo

ok.

thanks for the information. One last question. What are your idle temps on the card. I have mine at 33 to 35 degrees at 880 Mhz 2100 memory. So was thinking of overclocking it further. it would be great if you provide me the settings of your fan profile as well so that I can match them up with mine.

mine idles at 38C but of course our case and airflow setups could be slighty difference, but our components are very similar

fan profile is basically 50C- 60% 60C- 70% 70C-85C or so but its all gradual even at 80% fan it is quiter than the 6870 at 40% fan lol
