Default EVGA Produces Non-Reference GTX 470, Promises Better Temps

EVGA has tweaked the reference design slightly, shaving off some metal here and adding some there, in an effort to improve temperatures.The new product, dubbed GTX 470 SuperClocked+, duplicates the clock speeds of the original SuperClocked (625 core/3402 memory), but claims to "lower the operating temperature by as much as 7 degrees Celcius".

7C??? is that enoug...hm no:) We need at least 15 more degree to run at certain good level like previous gen were doing. Seems that I keep my GTX260 longer. Nice work from EVGA to try reduce one of the many GT400 series problem.

It'd be interesting to see a review of them in comparison to a "normal" GTX470.

Humm...

I had the "original" eVGA GTX470 SC pre-ordered when they came out. Good thing I canceled it, they are already coming out with a revised version!

Still, EVGA is a great company, they're quick to improve and it's nice to see. Too bad the card will sell for about the price of a HD5870 in Canada...
Because, unless if you are a folder, a HD5870 might be a better deal IMHO, and also run cooler.

Well, if its the same price as the 'regular' superclocked then its OK. But I worry when the marketing dept says "Up to 7c", as that makes me doubt if 7c is typical.

But if this will become the norm, for the normal SC price, then great. Then again, I have spent money on fancy TIM....

People go through a lot of effort for a lot less. Also 7C could be the difference between artifacts or not.

Not to us no, but it might be worth it to other customers. Although if I was looking at 2 cards and the only difference was heat I would pick the cooler one. (even if it is only a few C)
