No -
But - the only 670s we recommend people getting are the KFA2, Gigabyte WF and the Asus DCII. If people are watercooling then the EGVA 670 with the 680 PCB...
ie - the only 670s we ever tell people to get are the ones that have a proper sized PCB.

I haven't ever seen anybody recommend a completely reference 670 on this forum - and nobody should have the need to use reference these days anyway considering the small price difference between reference and non-reference.

When I bought mine you could get the Palit Jetstream for £310, when reference models were only £299.
Bit of a bigger difference now - but to me, it's still worth the extra £30 for the gigabyte windforcee or the KFA2 over reference

I had no idea that Asus was selling a 4GB GTX 670 for the same price as the cheapest GTX 680!

I might actually pick two of these up. Uses long PCB too.
