It's a good kit, but of course you'll still need to purchase your GPU block.

Swiftech is better quality than Koolance, so I would go with them.

Default Re: Are you going to buy Fermi?

Is there any advantage to buying factory superclocked versions? (ie. EVGA's one?) Do they give any advantage in terms of being able to clock higher than standard versions on air due to starting at 725MHz instead of 700MHz?

Or does it make no difference and standard versions can overclock just as well? Because unless the superclocked versions overclock better what is the advantage in getting them?

Other than they guarantee it as it is (overclocked)? I don't think so....they test it to make sure it can handle the overclock, and slap their lifetime warranty ON the overclock....

You may not be able to oc a normal 480 as much..or at all.... (this is just me thinkin' outloud, ie: opinion...Other more knowledgeable people here may have different insight,and I'd bow to their opinions...)..

Probally not, but in my case only the 3, 470's I ordered, where only availble in superclocked versions. If they would have been availble in standard I would have gotten them.

Theoretically the OC/superclocked version are binned higher, i.e., they've been tested as better overclocking boards, though I can't say I've ever seen a conclusive test if this is true or not, but seems reasonable.

Edit: I wonder if jakup would be able to confirm or debunk this...?

I got the EVGA SCs cuz they were the only ones in stock at that time. For me its EVGA or bust this round, as BFG has no Fermis prepared the release date for some reason, and the lifetime warranty and step-up program has me more at ease with my purchase.
