IF U ARE RUNNING a website like TPU which viewers u will give more priority?
Visitor looking for 1080p - 30% user
or Visitor looking for 1200p - 2% user

If u are saying 2%, then make your own product review website.
yeah? so why did they review 1200p up until now without the slightest problem? yeah, they actually did it, dont you believe that they tested 1200p? they did! why even start doing that when 30% of users had 1080p? who knows? i dont. cant understand at all this sudden change of heart!

next week they flip flop more and start testing 2520x1080 monitors..

as i said earlier, tpu gave the users a chance to learn there are even 1200p monitors. now that they left it out of testing, no wonder even more people will look for 1080p, because there is nobody left in this world who would tell the bfu there is another resolution! tpu were a leader, now they are a simple follower. no more teaching users about alternatives.

Do us all a favor and drop this and move on. Start doing your own reviews so others can second guess your every move.
EDIT: You have made your concerns known. No need to continue derailing this thread.

One of the best GPU coolers ever, this one. Even 100% is not too loud and keeps GPU under 60c. At stock is extremely quiet, like DC2 but it is bit more warm than DC2, but DC2 cant keep up when fans start to spin fast. TF has more potential. 1300mhz is not the big deal for one i have in my rig.
GTX 670 at max OC clocks, 1250/7200 is fast as stock gtx770 or just bit slower but gtx770 walks away when overclocked but not more than 10-15%. There is no real rason to upgrade esc if 670 is DC2 or PE or something like that with good coolers and costum PCB.

question about Twin Frozr IV cooler

Hellowww Wizard,

Quick question that I havent seen answered anywhere.

In almost every new add for the GTX 770 and 780 gaming they call the cooler
Twin Frozr IV Advanced.

The question burning in my mind is : Is there a difference between the Twin Frozr IV
fan on for example a GTX Lightning 680 or 670 Power Edition ???

Yes we all know the colors are different but I am just wondering if they only changed
the name of the Twin Frozr IV cooler and added Advanced to the name OR if they
did something else, like with the Fan Design or something else maby.

Anyways hope you or someone else can answer this one!

TF is such a great cooler. MSI GTX 770 sounds super smooth even when gaming. Better than DC2. Too bad the idle fan speed is ~1080-1110 rpm and clearly audible even from inside the case in an otherwise silent system. I haven't found a way to mod the bios to allow for lower fan speed at idle.

Did you install MSI applications? There is one that lets you set the card in three different modes, and one of them is silent, that sets the fans to about 700 rpm. I can't hear a thing.
