its a lot quieter, cools way better, will allow you to run passively, and is just built better. i had one for 50 bucks

want MSI 670 known to overvolt?

this would be something along my preference

That is a nice setup i don't see nothing wrong other then you only need 8gb of ram and the fisher price watercooling that needs to go in your trash can the rest is fine.
November 21, 2012 7:04:12 PM

Ok thanks, will check 8gb RAM out and that case as it is a bit cheaper, also changed to a GIGABYTE gtx 670, or would the EVGA be better for gaming etc?

I say go for the MSI 670 PE or The Asus Top DUII
ASUS GTX 670 TOP = Silent.
MSI GTX 670 PE = Better Overclocking.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_67... (MSI 670 PE Temperature)

Pick which you care more about. Nothing is Perfect between those 2 card. If you care more about silent, I would choose ASUS, but if you care more about Overclocking, I would go for 670 PE. Both are Excellent card.

I wont be overclcoking the GPU, doesent the ASUS have problems with it? not sure what kind of problems, but was just asking as i am curious.

Thanks buddy, will probably get an ASUS then. Also, is my motherboard a weakness, what would be the next step up (either ASUS or GIGABYTE)?

I actually like the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO if you wanted cheaper i would go with GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H

November 21, 2012 7:31:01 PM

NO. get the gigabyte 670. its 329.99 after MIR.

the ud5h is a better option if you ask me
November 21, 2012 7:33:31 PM

Nice one, i will stick with the ASUS for now then :) .

November 21, 2012 8:02:16 PM

I like it. But reason i don't recommend it is because it runs hotter then others do it's also louder other then that it's great
November 21, 2012 8:15:18 PM

Oh ok fair enough :) , still with ASUS, what is this ASUS TOP and non TOP? Can you explain what the differences are? Thanks again :) 
November 21, 2012 8:17:00 PM

pretty much higher clock speeds but you can overclock it yourself
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 21, 2012 9:21:22 PM

Asus Top uses higher specially binned chip.NON TOP uses lesser chip.I would be all over that Asus TOP for its high factory overclock, cool temps, and really, really quiet fans.heavily modified PCB, with an efficient VRM design to produce low temperatures, improved voltage regulation circuitry, much better ChiL controller , specially binned chip and voltage control and monitoring support that you won't find on most other non-reference cards. It looks aggressive to me and indeed is monster let's keep it on the real. TechPoweUp gives the 670 TOP an 10.0 rating, the only 10.0 rating ever

you dont get overvolting with the asus though. if you are unlucky and got the first batch of top cards, they were full of v-bios problems. they fixed it from what i hear

He said he doesn't plan on overclocking his card the highest factory overclocked one is the Zotac GTX670 AMP!!But i don't know if it's any good :??:

November 21, 2012 11:21:09 PM

zotac amp is pretty good. just very big
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 21, 2012 11:25:17 PM

So which card do you think he should get? I think since he won't overclock he should get one with a high factory overclock.
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 21, 2012 11:34:16 PM

id get the asus if he wont overclock. boost clock goes higher than most other cards. probably higher than the amp
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 21, 2012 11:37:50 PM

I think so to that is why i keep recommending the Asus lol.
November 22, 2012 11:15:29 AM

Ill get the normal ASUS 670, not the TOP one, or do you think there will be a big difference?
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 22, 2012 11:23:52 AM

Yes there will be the whole point to getting the top is for it's high factory overclock since you said you won't overclock.But get what you want mate.It's your money.
November 22, 2012 11:47:48 AM

Ok, ill check the TOP out
a b Ĉ ASUS
November 22, 2012 11:57:22 AM

Lol!No...no... i don't want to force anything on you get what you want seriously.It's your build not ours you should pick.
November 22, 2012 12:01:48 PM

Nah its ok, ill check it out later ;) . Thanks for the suggestions buddy

Was that a sarcasm? or do you really hate it? :) 
Because I saw that case, and I am even thinking of trying to get one if I can in my country, I just like how the white one reminds me of Stormtrooper or something. :D 
Its small, but thats all the bad things I can say. Why do you hate it, if it was not a joke? :)

It should be on sale now for around $70-$80 so it would be worth it now but i bought it at the $100 price which is not worth it at all.

It has good cable management but it doesnt have enough holes, the rubber grommets are low quality and just fall right off, the inside of the case is small but the outside of the case is huge for a mid tower.

i have to say it does look nice but i would prefer something like a 500R, CM HAF XM, or Fractal R4.

also if you can find a sale for CM storm styker(been on sale for around $120) go get it, it is a full tower so make sure you have room to put it in.
November 22, 2012 2:27:46 PM

If I got the normal ASUS GTX 670 and overclocked it to about 1,160MHz, would the stock fans be good enough to handle the temperatures?

Also how easy is this GPU to overclock?

Thanks

the non-top cards usually wont overclock that high. asus does the binning so that its very rare of that happening

my 670 can only hit 1125mhz before it throttles down. not enough volts
