So maybe this is an improvement Swiftech has made recently
Shipment confirmed, Titan #3 will be here Thursday!.( I always assume that i'm going to get scammed when using Ebay to BUY stuff) Hell, I approach everything in life as a potential scam. I do live in South Florida after all... lol! Trying to find a mechanic who won't sell you a new engine as a panacea for squeaky breaks is even hard.
Not saying is a fake Skupples just adding information relevant here. It would be nice to track this down and verify that EVGA is (or not) selling two varieties of hydro copper blocks. Sky, can you confirm where did you get that picture? Is it your block?
This can even explain an early behavior that the reviewer saw on his tests here:
Where EVGA and Swiftech blocks were not perfoming the same despite being in theory the same block. Since is an ongoing review not sure that info is still there but it was two months ago....BTW, notice that the EK block had the worse performance on the GPU die temperature. Just balancing the recent information posted here. Yes it is the best performer for the VRM and VRAM (which in light of the recent 1.3 volt mod and so on might as well mean is the best block for several users) but it is the worse in the gpu die itself. This was discussed months ago in this huge (and awesome thread).
