    GTX 780 w/ACX Cooling
    Guru3D just posted the 780 ACX review. I'm now glad I went this route. :banana:

    http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/evga_geforce_gtx_780_sc_acx_review,1.html

    Conclusion

    Obviously the reference design of the GTX 780 already is very sweet, in fact EVGA is using a reference board (PCB) yet decided that the reference cooler was not good enough. That There is room for improvement shows alright, as the new ACX cooler keeps this product chilled down under 65 Degrees C, and that is impressive when you consider the shreer performance combined with this factory faster clocked product. Overall, the GTX 780 is a surprisingly fast card, I really want to say exceptional here. Much like we stated in our reference review, we had a great time testing this graphics card. Coming from a GeForce GTX 680 you can expect a good 30% more performance and looking down from a GeForce GTX Titan, the performance difference is only roughly less then 3% and we even have seen a win or two over Titan. That has everything to do with the factory clocks of this product versus power and temperature targets versus the dynamic Boost clock.

    You can count me in (not) when i can afford it.The Palit GTX 780 just got listed and it is in stock in the store a usually buy stuff from for 700 euros.I wish a had the cash right now as could have it by tomorrow if i order it today.I can only imagine the massive performance boost i will get from my aging GTX480....

    i think i'm in. Have to factor in a waterblock as well..although is there much point due to voltage limitations?

    (i am a bit addicted to not hearing any gpu fan kick in :) )

    Was so happy to come home after work and find my EVGA GTX 780 :) Installed it and works perfectly. Cooler, just like so many ppl are saying is way quieter than the reference GTX 680.
    So as my hand were itching to try it, first thing I ran (with a little OC : +150/+350) was 3DMark 2013. and here's my results:
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/687268
    not too bad. But i can definitely OC more. Temps on the card barely reached 67C when testing, so it's still FAR away from the downclocking :)
    Time to run more tests, and then gonna do some gaming.

    So far I'm really happy.

    UPDATE: Managed to get to +200/+500. With fire strike score of 9846

    Been doing tons of tests all day, lowering and raising clocks etc, and I've finally settled on +180 core, +450 mem.
    Used the Metro Last Light benchmark to see if it crashes or not, since it was the only benchmark I could find that made it crash at those frequencies.
    Valley, Heaven, Dawn, none of those made it crash! I did 10 loops in a row of Metro and it was fine in the end.

    Thinking the same, but I may hold out. 780's are nice cards for sure.

    I think if I could get $425 a piece for my 670's with the EK blocks and back plates I would consider 780sli on water but I doubt I could get that.

    Not everybody HAS to post a link, if you really wanted to know about it, you would have taken his post and researched it first instead of bash and flame.

    As for the cooler. Yes that's a great one, but the stock cooler is great as well.

    I'll be getting 2 reference 780's with stock coolers from ASUS, as I personally have ran into too many failing 3rd party fans in the past. Every reference design fan I've owned always kept going.

    I installed my 2 EVGA 780 SCs and they both light up...but it seems my actual system only notices one card...any tips??

    I have the SLI bridge on them, but device manager only shows one card, and the "enable SLI" option isn't visible in my NVIDIA control panel

    Re-install the latest drivers and select custom install then check the box for clean installation try that first then report back. Also if device manager is not detecting it try reseating the card then check to see if GPUz sees the card.

    i tried seating the card in a different PCI slot and it shows up in device manager now...but it shows up with this:

    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
