Default Questions about eVGA cards

Question 1: What does CO mean?

Question 2: What does KO mean?

Question 3: Which one is better?

Question 4: How come these cards usually don't have huge heatsinks like some other brands, and does this lead to overheating problems?

I think CO and KO are terms for how overclocked it is, KO is better. I don't think you would have any problems with overheating unless your case closely resembles the Sahara desert.

Is there any good reasons for maybe getting one that is not overclocked at all?

the CO does not have as good of a heatsink. you can overclock yourself. i got the OC, replaced the thermal grease with AS5 and have it overclocked about as high as i can get it. i need to voltmod next... but i want to hold off till i revamp my watercooling system
