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:
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.
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 . Is the Sig 2 new because I do not see any videos and/or review of this card...
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.
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"
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.
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!
