    Wow did not know that. That's nice. Guess that's what Nvidia gets for the **** that they are trying to pull with MSI.

    I just got mine a week or two ago and am extremely impressed. It's as good as everyone says it is. :rock:

    Only if you intend to remove the block. EVGA only offers cards with the default heatsinks afaik and they're lousy at best.
    As the card isn't any cheaper than other cards, a new heatsink would add to the price.
    For watercooling I'd always use EVGA, but for everyone on air there's better cards around.

    Nope check again. EVGA has their new ACX coolers, and the classy's has always used a custom vapor chamber cooler now it has the ACX as well. EVGA also does not void your warranty for putting a different cooler on afaik.

    Had to RMA my 780 ti OC and I'm currently waiting for a replacement. The card had green artifacts during 3d mark11, probably memory issues.

    I should receive a new card tommorow, or early next week... Here is hoping it doesn't have the same problem. This is my first Gigabyte card, and by my experience it's hard to recommend it. I'd go with something else, unless you wanna jump the RMA-train.

    @loophole: Ok, if they have different blocks now that's good. As I said, they're the only ones that allow changes made to the cooling system without voiding the warranty.
    I've never seen them use different blocks before though, apart from their factory watercooled models.

    Lightning is a much different VRM design compaired to reference. The gaming is a reference PCB.

    If the card is too loud -> did you check the heatsink? My older Windforce block has 3 heatpipes that go right above the GPU. Only two of them had contact by default though.
    Even with the full power target of 112% and full overclock (1283MHz and +500 for the RAM), the card never goes above 65°C (while staying quiet!).

    Thanks. :)

    And I will.

    EDIT: I got the new card and there are zero problems with this one. I can even clock it further than the standard without artifacts, im quite glad with it.:)

    Hey. I spoke to soon, I'm once again getting the artifacts in 3DMark 11. However, I spoke with the store via email and I will be getting EVGA 780 Ti Superclocked instead. For anyone thinking about buying Gigabyte 780 ti, I hope you will see my post about this, and save yourself from the RMA train. I should've done research before going Gigabyte.

    Gigabyte seems to have some serious quality issues here are some thing i've gathered:

    http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=13730.0

    In every post above the problem is the same, most likely defective vram. If this doesn't change your mind about getting Gigabyte 780 ti, I don't know what will. 2nd card lasted me about a week, until I once again got green artifacts in 3DMark 11, the only way to make those vanish is to dowclock the memory which isn't what I bought this card for. This will be the last gigabyte product I will ever buy, I'm not even going to touch their MOBOS. I'm sure getting EVGA will make all my problems disappear.
