Difference between Gigabyte Windforce RTX 2070 3x Fans or 2x Fans?

Hey guys!

I am looking to pickup an RTX 2070 to pair with my Oculus Quest for HL: Alyx next month. I am trying to save some dollars and am looking at the Gigabyte Windforce, but my question is...

Whats the major difference between the 2x Fan (GV-N2070WF2-8GD REV3.0) edition and the 3x Fan (GV-N2070WF3-8GC) edition, besides obvious cooling with the extra Fan?

Will I be missing out on anything major by picking up the 2x Fan version for cheaper?

Thanks for your insights!

Thats pretty much it heat dissipation.

 

The 3 fan model has a larger power requirement. 

 

Also the 3 fan is larger. 280 mm vs 264 mm otherwise they should perform the same in most situations. 

 

If your doing so hard core long day gaming you might start seeing performance issues as the card gets hot. 

 

When you start hooking up the VR gear your going to be hitting the card a lot harder. 

 

But you will probalby be fine with the 2 fan model
