I'm going to say go 780SC reference cooler...unless you want to flip the radiator to exhaust air out....I personally wouldn't run two ACX's with that much intake, and that little exhaust....thats just me though thumb.gif

No binning outside of the Classified and FTW cards per Jacob@EVGA. The SC are pretested @ the SC clocks, but are not binned.

This. If you going SLI go with stock cooler. Otherwise you will have 25c different from first GPU to second GPU. I have been testing SLI with ACX. My final word for SLI ACX its does Sucks. I have seen my second GPU hittinig 60c and the first GPU 80c to 85c this running in a shoebox.

I can confirm this. With stock reference coolers my GPUs are the exact same temperature. Coming from 7970s that weren't reference coolers the difference was 15+ degrees.

Do you have a gap between the cards or are they right on top of one another?

A gap about a 1" card to card.

hmm any other opinions with the GTX 780 ACX SCs in SLI vs the normal GTX 780 SCs in SLI?

Carbide 500R, two 120mms blowing air in, 1 AF140 exhausting, top blocked off by radiator and fans on the outside of the case pushing air onto the radiator and there is a 200mm side fan right beside where the GPUs are supposed to be. I can install more fans in the case if needed.

This picture looks similar to mine - minus the orange circle and I can easily add that fan in
.

What do you guys think?

This is my motherboard

NZXT or Arctic Cooling may have some custom WC closed loops I could install. I wonder if those would work more efficiently. I have a Seasonic X-1050 PSU so I think it should be enough for all that.

EDIT:Stock cooler it is/Is there anything more efficient that keeps air out of the case?

Hi peoples,

Just wondering is the 780 just like the Titan in that it doesnt matter which one you buy because they are all the same? and the lower clocked/vanilla ones can just be overclocked to get the same performance as an SC that been overclocked too?
