Closed Which 7870 is better? Tags: Radeon Asus Overclocking Cooling Graphics Product Last response: November 9, 2012 9:21 AM in Graphics & Displays Share lt_dan_zsu September 14, 2012 11:16:30 PM I was originally going to get the his 7870 with the iceq cooler, but no that that one is out of stock I saw that the asus 2-slot 7870 is on sale for $230. I was planning on doing a decent amount of overclocking, but nothing to substantial. Which one has better cooling. this asus one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or this HIS one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It seems like the HIS one has better cooling but I don't know if it is worth waiting that long to get it. So which one is better?

Hawk is OCED 100mhz past reference and can easily get up to 1300 XD blazorthon a b Ĉ ASUS a b K Overclocking September 14, 2012 11:22:15 PM I'd just get the Asus now. AR it's $210 and it's in stock now. I doubt that the HIS cooler is really better than the Asus, not that I'm accusing it of being bad. Also, like snipersam15 said, the HAWK is the best 7870.
