View Full Version : Which manufacturer for HD 4670?
11-05-2008, 08:04 AM
I plan to buy an HD4670 card, but am confused since there are so many manufacturers with identical specs (512MB, 128bit, GDDR3).
Which one among Asus, Gigabyte, HIS, MSI, Powercolor, Sapphire should I go for? Which of these cards is better at cooling? Which of them keeps the noise to a minimum? I don't mind a dual slot card (since it is probably helps with cooling).
Thanks for your replies!

Usually the difference is just a different sticker on the cooler and different bundle package . Unless you are looking for a better stock cooler or a passive cooler , then just pick the one that has the best bundle in your opinion .

i personally went with the HIS 4670
since it exhausts the hot air out the back
also for the fact that it was a non-stock cooler, stock cooler
is a bit warm
my current gpu temp is 24 Celsius
(my old x1950 pro with a addon cooler was around 34C, stock cooler was 50C)
cpu is at 14 Celsius (kinda crazy for air cooling, lol)
system at 24 Cecilius
this is all at idle
i'll play online for a bit tonight and update this post later

ultima: Wow! Those are cool temps (literally too!). Where are you, Antartica?:D
But how about the noise, though? Is the fan fairly quiet?
Thanks for your reply.
