nice but i dont have any water cooling setup, but thats a great price. the msi twin frozer, gigabyte windforce, and evga acx all are good in my head so i will probably just get whatever one i can find cheapest... unless i find a classy for not that far off. but i have encountered a new potential problem... which is my power supply.

Here is a quick link to my ocz modxstream pro 600w power supply.
http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/ocz_mxs_pro_600...
Its definitely decent enough and i got it for cheap like $30 a couple years ago.

Right now my setup is 2500k@4.8ghz and a 7950@1.15ghz

Will this work for highly overclocked gtx 780, like 1300mhz on the core? I have two 12v rails rated at 25amps each and the total rated is at 42a@12v according to ocz website. its working fine now with the 7950(voltage locked) 6+6pin connector. the 780 has an 8+6 pin connector.

Can i split the load and run one power pin connector on one 12v rail and run the other power pin connector on the second 12v rail? if so i may have to take the top off and see which rail my cpu is on and put the 6pin on that freeing up the 8pin to go on the other rail.

i used to have a gtx570(+.87mv@920mhz) a little over a year ago on the same system if that helps.

Well, it looks like your card is more like a classified! smile.gif
Its not the bios running your fans, its fixed in the controller perhaps! there are no reviews of your card that i could find, so, i have little data to extrapolate any answer! sadsmiley.gif

Well I have 2 different BIOS files from the card's dual bios, each with different fan profiles. Would sending you those BIOS files help?
post #16515 of 24915
Well.. I found my max OC with 1.212v (+250core/550mem) but it crashed in BF4 frown.gif
In another games/benches there is no problem, interesting.
Will make 2nd profile just for BF4, still can't find stable OC for it.

By the way, is this OC numbers good for Gigabyte GTX 780 WF3 OC? This is my first experience in OCing GPUs smile.gif

You have 2 PCIe rails with 25A separated from the CPU rail (the non-modular lines) your CPU is drawing what? 130/150W Oc´ed? plus 350/400W on a Oc´ed 780, with some 50W more for the rest of the system you got around 500W usage right? now, theres 2 problems; even if you can feed 50A by merging the 2 rails to the 780 it still might trip the OCP and see shut downs but the biggest one is age! Your PSU has a few years on her and there´s something called electrolytic capacitor aging. When used heavily or over an extended period of time (1+ year) a power supply will slowly lose some of its initial wattage capacity. 10-20% if you plan to keep your PSU for more than 1 year, or 20-30% for 24/7 usage and 1+ year.
So IMO you should also consider a stronger, newer PSU! Its the most important part of any build! thumb.gif

So when I bought my GTX 780 reference card back in June 2013 it was around $750, it died on me some time in November 2013. So I returned it to the place I bought it from and they sent it to be repaired. When they got the replacement last week it failed testing so they've sent it back to the supplier and I'll probably be given some store credit from Scorptech. Now this month I actually bought a DCU II from another retailer because it was $649 and came with the holiday bundle. If I get given the full amount of credit I could buy any GTX 780 I want. Initially I wanted the 780 classified but I didn't have enough money for my CPU water loop and a classified so that's why I got my second choice which was the DCUII

ECGA classified $749
EVGA ACX Superclocked $699
Asus DCU II $699
MSI Lightning $699
EVGA Dual FTW $689
MSI gaming $649 (Will be $679 after 13th of January)

I'm thinking about buying just another DCUII because If I get the classified or lightning I'll probably have one card that's overclocking really well and the other that's not so the DCUII will bring down my other card no matter what. Do any of you have any thoughts on this matter?

IMHO If you have a DCU2 get another one Oc´them and you will have enough power to play games for the next 2 years! thumb.gif

yeah thats what im figuring with the age of the power supply. im still gonna get the 780 and im sure i can give it a modest oc to let it hold above 1ghz. but im just gonna shop around and find a good quality power supply and definitely upgrade that in the next month or two. im sure i will stumble across a promo code and rebate for a dime piece 700-750w power supply for under $60. cheers and thanks for the help. looking forward to a skynet bios for whatever card i end up with in the next few weeks. im sure i will end up tripping the OCP on my current power supply though, ugh.
