Wondering what 7950 you folks would recommend for mining?
I'd like something as cool and quiet as possible but also one that can oc well. I'll sacrifice noise for performance but they must run as cool as possible as I don't want to bake this summer.
The gigabyte windforce is what im leaning towards. Thoughts?
Going to be buying 2 right now then moving towards 4 soon after.

Best would be the HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock (H795QMC3G2M), NCIX doesn't carry it though.

Windforce does seem like a good card. Would be my second choice, basically you want anything with 2-3 fans. The Asus Direct CU II would be perfect (Direct CU II coolers are awesome), but I do not think that it is the boost edition.

I picked up the powercolor 7950 which has been cheap in the past few sales. The stock cooler can just barely keep up when mining (hits 82 deg C) likely throttling a bit and is loud as hell. Fortunately my intention was to put it under water ASAP.

Edit: 2-3 not 2
