EVGA GTX 670 FTW+ (Blower Fan) or Sig2 (Duel Fan)

Please don't tell me about the AMD Radon cards are better. They might be but I like Nvidia from personal experience. Now, the internal specs are exactly the same but I haven't seen many reviews on the Sig2 (Duel Fan), if you were me which would you choose? Like below are posted:

  1. Me personally i use this "Blower" style cooler and barely hear it and its cool, very cool

    Now the Signature2 card has a better binned 670 than the FTW... so it might OC a little more but.. the dual fan is a good choice. I like the white and black looks they made standard with these cards
  2. I would choose the signature 2 with the 2 fans. I've read from others that they still run very quiet despite not being a real aftermarket cooler like the other manufactures produce. The way the cooler is setup is that it will still exhaust air out the back. I don't see how you could go wrong with the Signature 2. EVGA as well is a awesome company to work with. Hope you end up pleased with your card whichever you decide on.
  3. Thanks guys for the input! I think I will go with the Sig 2 just because I guess more fans should help with Nvidia's GPU boost :P. Is the Sig 2 new because I do not see any videos and/or review of this card...
  4. Yea its a quite new card actually
  5. The signature 2 card was more of a European card prior to it being more readily seen in the US. There was a guy on the forums who had brought it up i want to say in September or October. It's become more readily seen lately in the US.
  6. Oh so it is new! Cool. That explains a lot. So the Sig 2 is a definite buy compared to the regular GTX 670 FTW...
  7. new doesn't always mean better. with that said i wouldn't get a reference card unless it was a lot cheaper. listen to the sound of the reference blower. i think that's reason enough not to get it.

    While I support the signature 2 , I find that reference example irrelevant.. because when you have a few 2000 rpm fans in your case you won't notice the reference fan from the 670 when you have 6 other fans going it is hard to tell which one is making the most "Noise"
  10. Which may be a valid point but there are people that don't have 2000 rpm fans. Maybe someone has super low rpm PWM fans? You go to that link and check out the sound checks its completely noticeable the sound.
  11. Yes I watched the video. Yes I also know people that have 480's. yes I know how loud they got and YES i know people in general think Blower fan= terriburrr
  12. I don't think they are terrible I just can understand the noise argument.

    I purchased the signature 2 for my HTPC build (in a Silverstone GD05 case) and I can tell you that I do not hear the card at all - even running Unigine 3.0 maxed out with the volume muted. Max temps in that small HTPC case are 76C with a max fan speed of 51%.
    Unlike most dual fan coolers, the Sig 2 exhausts the warm air out the back - something I really wanted with my build and I have no doubt it is quieter than the blower version. I couldn't be happier!
  14. Yea that is exactly what I read that it does exhaust out the back which is really nice of it to do. Glad your card is boss like you wanted :) now stand still so I can own you in w.e game you play ;)
  15. lol at the own comment
