It appears the specs on the SC2 Gaming and SC2 Hybrid Gaming are identical, the only difference being the cooler. Are they actually the same card and if so, can you run them in SLI mode?
Thanks, Don

    is there any performance difference in between the 2 in terms of cooling capabilities?

    Unless the inside of your case is 75 degrees, then yes the SC2 Hybrid will have much lower temps at both idle and at load.

    Just to weigh in on this, The actual physical size of both cards is different, The issue I ran into with SLI using both these cards, regardless of identical performance stats is that you CANNOT use the hard sli bridge, I used 2 separate flax cables, however I did notice a judder or jitters in high graphically intensive games.  If you look this up, its actually solved by using the high bandwidth SLI HB hard bridges, unfortunately b/c the FTW vs the SC2 hybrid have different depths, you cannot use this device.  :( 
     
    Just to confirm, the hybrid runs about 10 degrees Celsius lower than the FTW.  Im selling my FTW to a friend and picking up another sc2 hybrid so that i can use the hard bridge.  After hours of research in the issue im having, i feel as though this will solve my issues with 144hz 141 fps gaming.
