Has anyone tried the aforementioned card, http://msi.com/product/vga/N650Ti-1GD5-OC.html
? How's the cooling?
The Cyclone II cooler on the Power Edition has received praise, and ranks well in the reviews listed by CA_Steve here http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=65179
, but it's priced too close to 7850s over here.
This one's a steal over here at 130 euros (1 GB Gigabyte OC is 160, for example), and it's even eligible for the recent Nvidia AC3 campaign (get AC3 free with card). The price difference is enough to pay for a replacement cooler, if the acoustics or cooling were subpar - the default fan is PWM, so the AC Accelero Mono Plus (40 EUR) would be an option.
