    The psu made the coil whine on the gpy that's crazy lol. I was thinking on upgrading my 750 watt but I don't think I need to but my psu is over 3 years old how long do psus last?.

    If its a good build 6-8years for sure in normal operations.. Mine was almost 6years old - had a little whine, but it was a little too old for another lighting strike lol

    Considering how much it the Thermaltake piece of paska whined, I'm not surprised at all. :p Heck, even though this Super Flower is not modular one, I can do cable management better than with the Thermaltake since the cables are more flexible (and maybe a little bit longer). Heck, those cables were like iron wire... Kinda weird that it whined so much, kinda atypical for CWT unit (and it had decent internals - at least electrolytic caps were Japanese but the rest probably wasn't that great).

    What's max safe voltage on air?
    I'm right now on 1.212v and found my max stable OC. But I want to push it a bit more. Maybe only memory which completely sucks (hynix).

    I would not give more than that. That is the max safe voltage according to NVIDIA. Anything higher might not be optimal for VRM.

    Max is whatever your GPU can do at 1.212V. Mine can only do 1189 sadly.

    Doesn't much matter if you go water. How does 1400mhz at 1.35v sound?

    VRMs might not handle those well at all even under water unless the card has really powerful custom VRM section. At 1,35V it could just go boom or degrade the life span quite a bit.

    Count me in, bought a 2560x1440 Korean monitor 2 months ago, got a 780 Windforce OC Rev2 a week ago, amazing card!

    Well I know that with water you can usually get over the voltage wall with no problems. But water as we all know is expensive.

    Not really. But its well worth the added cost. Most kits these days are getting better value and can carry over builds, just need a new backplate for new sockets in the future.

    Ive been running 1.38 volts under load for 24/7 for a little over a week now, and before that 1.35v for a couple of months. TDP is 450~ watts under load on a reference card. These cards are pretty strong as long as heat is taken care of.

    $400 for a decent loop is expensive for most, especially if you have other hobbies. As for "well worth", that's pretty debatable. If you're a bencher sure, but otherwise meh.

    Yeah. Definitely not worth the extra 5%-9% performance.

    Think I am joining the club this friday. 2 780 classys unless the ti gets a major price cut by then. Which is doubtful.

    Anybody know if the top card will run much hotter than the bottom on this type of cooler. I usually by the blower style coolers and the difference in my top and bottom card is 5c.
    Sry for quoting myself. Cell fone malfunction

    My top card is 3c hotter than my bottom one. But this rig is on an open air test bench. So YMMV.
