    Do Dabs and Novatech stock the same Asus 670 DirectCU II as the reviewers? Both sites say its 915Mhz, whereas reviews from TechPowerUp/Guru3D say different - 1058Mhz

    Very tempted to cancel my 680 order and get this Asus, just for the 24 dBA of load noise alone.

    edit: looks like the difference is in GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 and GTX670-DC2-2GD5, latter one being non-overclocked.

    T for Turbo? Might be an idea to check the Asus website for more details.

    On Asus cards the T in DC2T is TOP, their designation for the best overclocked cards.

    I scoured the planet for a TOP version and couldn't find one for love nor money.
    In fact, the 'normal' ASUS one , was very difficult to track down.
    Only become available this afternoon on Novatech and even then there were only ten available.
    I went for this one because of the noise levels, power draw and brilliant performance and extras over the stock version.
    Also, the red and black match my mobo, case etc very nicely!

    On a late note; I do own two white GPUs those KFA2(aka Galaxy) 550s are fun little cards.

    I just wish they'd produce a 670 variant!

    Good catch on the TOP distinction. I guess it's not out yet for wide release.

    That gigabyte card now looks more attractive...
