More about brand model
  1. Watching movies shouldn't be a concern, especially for a 670.

    MSI, Gigabyte, and ASUS usually have the best cooling. But, if you want to overclock, get the MSI.
  2. evga 670 FTW edition 2 or 4 gb versions
  3. EVGA is good, but other OEM's have EVGA beat on cooling.
  4. i would either get the evga FTW edition or the gigabyte X3 windforce card
  5. Get the Gigabyte card. It overclocks very well as well as provides exceptional cooling capabilities. I would know since I have one going nice and stable at 1262Hz without overvolting and after some minor fan adjustment it rarely goes over 60C. I can't even hear it over my case fans even on full load of 2 hours of the furmark benchmark.
  6. I have two MSI PE 670.MSI Power Edition Architecture Boosts Overclocking Potential by 22.5%
    The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition graphics card is based on the MSI Power Edition architecture: Afterburner's Triple Overvoltage allows the GPU, Memory and PLL(Aux) voltages to be adjusted . The Enhanced PWM design provides 25% more current than the reference design to ensure high stability during overclocking.


    Twin Frozr IV: 20°C Cooler and 11.7dB Quieter than Reference Board
    The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition is equipped with MSI's latest Twin Frozr IV Thermal Design. MSI's exclusive Dust Removal technology automatically reverses the fans at startup to prevent dust build-up dust and optimize the cooling module's ability to dissipate heat.


    Patented Propeller Blade technology provides 20% more air flow over conventional fans and increases the effective cooling area. When combined with dual 8 cm temperature-controlled fans, SuperPipe technology, and a nickel-plated copper base, temperatures are effectively reduced by up to 20°C and noise by 11.7dB!


    MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks. MSI is asking a $30 price premium for their card, which doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks.When you consider the current rebate i think it's the best buy right now. MSI GTX 670 PE = Better Overclocking. Quote: "For those of you wondering, at these speeds, the actual Boost clock we typically observed in games was between 1450MHz and 1465MHz".

  8. Have a GTX 670 FTW from EVGA, its a rocksolid card. Well worth what i paid for it, and i have a 680 backplate mounted on it.

    there is many issues with asus 670 i think so i won't buy it :(
  11. MSI 'might' have two power edition SKUs. Though I'm not 100% sure, but look for "/OC" in the Power edition product naming those are what i have and their beast!I don't have a 27 inch monitor though so i honestly wouldn't know.
  12. can you bring me a link for your card in newegg and amazon if you can
    or type the full name of your card ^^

    and why there is big diffrence between pe and p oc edition in this site
    http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_670_power_edition_oc_review,24.html
  13. hmm

    its name is N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 Graphic Card - 1019 MHz Core - 2 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI-Express 3.0 x16

    so it is pe and oc right?

  17. From best to worst from techpowerup

    Asus 670 TOP - 10.0 rating (only card ever to get a 10.0)

    Gigabyte Windforce SC 670 - 9.8 rating

    MSI Twin Frozr IV 670 - 9.7 rating

    They didn't do the EVGA so.....

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/evga-geforce-gtx-670-sc-review/23
    EVGA SC Boost Clock is 1046 outta the box....stable at 1200 Mhz
    EVGA SC gets 3DMark Score of 8691 outta the box and 9443 OC'd
    Idle temp is 29C / load temp is 78C
    Noise is 37 dBA Idle / 43 dBA under load

    http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-geforce-gtx-670-directcu-ii-top-review/23
    Asus TOP Boost Clock is 1137 outta the box .... stable at 1280 Mhz
    Asus gets 3DMark Score of 9340 outta the box and 9839 OC'd
    Idle temp is 30C / load temp is 72C
    Noise is 37 dBA Idle / 38 dBA under load

    That makes the Asus 7% faster outta the box than the EVGA SC, 6C cooler and almost 1/4 as loud under load (every 3 dBA is a doubling of sound level). The FTW is slightly faster than the SC, leaving the Asus model w/ just a 5% performance advantage

    He already mentioned he doesn't want the TOP he thinks it has issues besides you ca't find it anywhere i say get the Evga if you don't care about a little heat and noise then get that if not get the MSI PE 670 ;)
