MSI Twin Frozr 7950 vs Gigabyte Triforce 7950

I was orginally going to buy the sapphire 7950 when it was $290 +$20 MIR, but the price went up to $319. The same price as the msi and $20 more than the gigabyte, so I don't really feel it's worth it anymore. So I'm trying to decide between the msi 7950 or the gigabyte version. I've heard that the new gigabyte cards have a locked voltage and I'm planning on OCing, so I'm leaning towards the twin frozr if it's true. Which I hope isn't because the gigabyte seems to run a few degrees cooler.

  1. Gigabyte because its
    1.Cheaper
    2. Runs cooler
    3. Factory Clocked higher

    Either way they are both great cards
  2. It would suck if I couldn't OC it though.
  3. From what I've heard the voltage is locked on the gigabyte.

    Really? From what I heard you have to flash an old bio or something.
