EVGA GTX 670 FTW SIG2 reviewed - Overclocking

Review: GTX 670 FTW with superior and quieter cooler

We had a chance to test several GTX 670 graphics cards based on the reference design, with the reference cooler. Although reference coolers usually aren’t very impressive, Nvidia did a good job when it comes to the reference GTX 670 design. You’ll also hear the reference cooler when the card gets hot, but it doesn’t get too loud while the temperatures are on the safe side, somewhere about 80°C.  

EVGA GTX 670 FTW Signature 2’s GPU is overclocked by 91MHz (1006MHz), something which would be too much for the reference cooler to cope with, at least not without producing a lot more noise.

Quality cooling is a must when we deal with overclocked components, and EVGA’s GTX 670 FTW Signature 2 fits into this category. We pushed the Power Target all the way up to +145 percent  and got a stable GPU Base clock at 1121MHz (+206MHz over the reference clock). It was hassle free and we have no issues to report.
