I managed to get my hands today on ASUS GTX670 DirectCU II TOP Graphic Card, ASUS Got the DirectCU II Technology on the Card to have best cooling for card to perform,
lets take a lok on the Features and the specfications of the Card:
Features:
DirectCU:
Thick copper heatpipes are accurately positioned in direct contact with the GPU surface so heat is transported and dissipated efficiently to the heatsink - achieving a 20% cooler performance than reference. Since heat is carried away faster, fans can spin at a lower speed thus resulting in quieter performance than reference.

Super Alloy Power:
The new and exclusive Super Alloy Power technology on ASUS graphics cards uses a special alloy formula which is highly-magnetic, heat-resistant and anti-corrosive. It delivers a more stable and quieter operation compared to the reference design – a welcome bonus sought after by performance seekers.
35°C Cooler Operations
Super Alloy components are reinforced with special alloy formula and manufactured under high temperature and pressure to deliver stable and noise-free operation.

15% Performance Boost
During overclocking, the Super Hybrid Engine acts as an intelligent controller to switch between high and low intensity power profiles in real time for 15% performance boost*.
2.5X Longer LifespanSuper Alloy Capacitor increases the card’s lifespan to 150,000 hours which is 2.5 times longer* than traditional capacitors.

GPU Tweak:
Overclocking is made real-time and intuitive with ASUS GPU Tweak utility. It not only allows you to optimize clock speeds, voltage and fan speeds on up to four graphics cards independently or simultaneously, you can also select between GPU Tweak’s Standard or Advanced modes depending on your level of experience. For gamers out there, GPU Tweak enables instantaneous in-game video recording* up to 720p resolution so you can share clips with the community easily.

ASUS GTX670 DC2T-2GD5 VS Overclocked ASUS GTX670 DC2T-2GD5

we managed to overclock the card using ASUS GPU Tweak to 1200 Core clock and 7500 on Memory Clock

Conclusions:
ASUS GTX670 DC2T-2GD5 did a Impressive job on hitting a Scoreof 9566 in 3Dmark 2011 and 10K+ overclocked!!,, the card actually crossed GTX680 Standard scores, means no need to get a standard GTX680 for performance requirement anymore. a preoverclocked card which makes any gamers a big smile in his face to Obtain the great performance on almost any today's games.
The cooling Heatsink ( DirectCU II from ASUS ) makes the card to run in a very quite mode during operation + the Super Power Alloy on the PCBhelps to REduce Heat , Increase the Perfomance stability and better longer life operations
ASUS GTX670 DC2T-2GD5 Graphic Card Tag Price is 1800AED in the current moment.
