A lot of non-reference models are in production and so far I've seen models of...

Sapphire Tri-X

Powercolor LCS

ASUS DirectCU II

XFX Double Dissipation

I'm still waiting on MSI's and Gigabyte's solutions. So far the ASUS looks like it keeps it nice cool and quiet and clocked at 1050 MHz with the memory clocked at 5.4GHz

Which ones to keep an eye out for?

Sapphire. This Dual-X cooler really surprised me.

The answer is all of them. Pick one that you like then lock on to it, don't double guess

I've had a Dual-X card before and it couldn't beat my Twin Frozr Gaming Edition card in terms of acoustics. So I'd definitely go for the DCU II for silence right now but if MSI shows us the Twin Frozr version I would also consider that too.

If anyone picks XFX I feel sorry for you.

Anyways, Asus.

If I do end up returning the reference model I'll get the DC2.

Don't know if I will, have had 0 issues with the reference model so far and the only reason I consider it is because I have until jan 31st to return the reference model no questions asked.
