I have two Asus DirectCU II GTX-670 and they are very quiet even with the fan at 100% they are barely audiable.They overclock pretty good too.They are well made ,it has a back plate and the only plastic on it is the fan blades

got 2 windforce cards and they both suck horribly...no were near the same OC performance as reviewers were getting (it all comes down to your luck with the ASIC). Although, if you don't care much about OCing they are freezing cold and whisper quiet (rarely do they hit 60C under massive load with ~35-40% fan speed).

As far as Nvidia which manufactures still support the addition of a water block under their warranties?

I thought as long as the card can be returned for warranty service with everything back to factory configuration (i.e. original heatsink/fan) it was fair game? Don't quote me on that though

I think the only cards that can be WC'd with a warranty are the evga hydro copper cards when they get here (680 should be but dunno about 670)
