Got a question here.
 
I'm a new member here at Hardware Canucks, so maybe I have used the wrong forum section. :ban:
Anyway, are you guys planning to review the Gigabyte GTX 680 SuperOverclock? I tried to find the review, but I didn't find any.

I'm a huge fan of Hardware Canucks' reviews as well! Their reviews are always a pleasure to read.

That all depends on the Vendor to be honest. GB is usually pretty good at letting there SOC cards be tested here, though as it stands I don't know if SKYMTL has on one the backburner or not. Hopefully he can chime in and let us know.

And, Welcome to the Forum :thumb:

I know the card is going to be fast. I want to know if it will be as loud as I think it will be. And, if it is, what were they thinking?

I ordered it yesterday. Read some reviews till now, and pretty much everyone mentions that the fans produce the "whistle" noise in full load. Soon, I could leave some feedback after I assemble my new rig.

I mean, here's the problem I have. It's really not clocked any faster than, say, the ASUS GTX680 DirectCUII. If you're going to go for a triple slot cooler, I'm confident that the ASUS model will be a LOT quieter. Isn't the triple slot DirectCUII almost silent? And easily just as fast.

Of course I would've gone with ASUS' DirectCU II cooler, especially combined with the TOP edition. But the card is no where to be found in Croatia. Gigabyte GTX 680 Super Overclock was the fastest model I could find, plus it's cheaper than the other GTX 680s here.

You know, I'm all for cooling but these triple slot cards are a bit extreme to me (size wise). I actually enjoy what ASUS is doing with there Mini-670.

Maybe that's just me.

I was with you on that front, until I tried my 660 DirectCU. The 660 is to the double slot DirectCU heatsink as the 680 is to the triple slot DirectCU heatsink.

I cannot stress how nice it is to have completely silent video cards. The heatsinks don't have to work very hard at all. That would be worth the hassle of having a triple slot heatsink, in my mind alone.

Now, I just have to work on silencing the rest of my rig.
