    I have two gtx780 ghz edition..One of them is not stable at factory clock and the other one seems stable, but i wouldn t reccommend gigabyte cards to anyone..A lot of people, like me, seems to having troubles with gtx780/gtx780ti oc/ghz...I think it's better msi or EVGA

    I had GTX 780 GHz... Skip Gigabyte. It had fan rattling, coil whine and was really noisy.

    the SOC is a reference PCB with the ACx cooling ?

    Well I have came down to the following
    EVGA 03G-P4-2884-KR GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked
    or
    EVGA 03G-P4-3788-KR GeForce GTX 780 Classified
    I' been searching and reading and watching videos and im not the "Ti" is worth the extra 150 or not!

    I have not had a nvidia card since the GTX6800, It was the BFG card

    I'm on Gigabyte GTX 780 Windforce OC.
    As @Anarion said already - fans really noisy. But I don't care because I'm playing in my Tiamat's :D

    Would the fans be noisy while sitting in idle or under load and are you at stock speeds ?

    I not ruled out a gigabyte, but evga is a good company.

    No noise in idle. And I'm using custom fan curve for keeping my GPU temp at <70c

    Don't touch Gigabyte cards. My Gigabyte 7970 was awful.

    I've bought Gigabyte cards for a LONG time now, never had a problem with them. My current card is a beast too, and I don't hear any adverse noise from it...

    I'm sure it's just bad luck but my only experience of Gigabyte cards is a 560 Ti which was not stable at factory clocks.

    Surprised to see so many negative comments about them, but yeah, I'll never touch anything gigabyte again.

    Mine was noisy in idle because fan rattled without it it would have been silent though this Radeon TF is just as silent. In load fan speed went to 3000RPM and temperature went up to 80c. Max fan speed with my current card has been little over 2000RPM and the temperature has been below 80c. And this is supposed to be the hothead... Says something about windforce cooler. I have open headphones so noise matters. Oh and the horrible coil whine made it even noisier.

    I think 4 or 5 of my friends have the same Windforce card I have myself and every one of them had bad contact between heatsink and card.
    After lapping/sanding the blocks the cards were much much cooler and stayed quiet even under heavy load. They're even great overclockers then.

    But yes, the fans will start to rattle at some point. Can't say others wouldn't, as the bearing simply can't live long being upside down, but it's a definite problem.
    If you don't mind the sanding and have a good dealer, with good support, I'd definitely recommend these cards.

    My 780 ti non ghz edition works great. 69.4 asic reading but can run up to 1,270mhz core playing BF4 and stay 70c or lower around 70% fan curve. Think I have it set to around +106mhz since it does around 1,150mhz boost without touching it.

    Some games it will crash if it boosts higher than 1,230mhz, probably could fix that by disabling boost, not sure how though, no option when using EVGA precision.

    Some games like dark souls if I run it at stock settings and 60fps frame cap, it will not go higher than 48c, while even using Nvidia Shadowplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Odtsogryf3w

    The ends of the heatpipes are very hot, which means heat is transferring all the way to the end for good dissipation. I definitely enjoyed my purchase, its even cheaper now.

    Have a Gigabyte 690 since launch day, no problems here, overclocks much more than the MSI that i had. Cant really fault EVGA though but you will get good and bad experiences with all as things break down no matter what brand is on them, you can only go by your own experience.

    I've had no issues with my ASUS cards at all. No coil whine, noise, fan issues, notta.


    Seems that the 600 series was good for Gigabyte, but I've seen a lot of issues around the web with their 700 series. Be it BIOS or hardware related.
