My case doesn't have the space to fit that kind of radiator unfortunately. If I was water cooling my GPU I would most likely just try to incorporate it into my H240x loop with one of those EK-780 waterblocks. Would be a bit more expensive than your solution, but I usually prefer to go a bit overboard when it comes to cooling, just so I can keep fan RPM low. Hopefully that will provide the cooling necessary to overclock the card past 1350 core.

This is all under the assumption that I will be waiting until 2017 for the GTX 1080, or whatever they plan to call it. If I'm gonna be stuck waiting that long for the next generation I think my 780 DC2 is gonna have trouble keeping up with new releases.

Got 1440p already, but ye, there really is no point in upgrading at all. I'll wait it out.

Just a stock Gigabyte GTX 780 with water cooling. My build log has more details.

Bench details here

Witcher 3 at high res is glorious, I play it at 1440p near max details, just turn down foliage to high and some post processing effects off from personal preference like vignetting. Should be a smooth experience on 780's.

If anyone has an ASUS 780 DC2OC and they have fitted it with a full waterblock please get to me with your max overclocking results and benchmarks. I am considering investing time and money to put in a waterblock but I need to be sure as to the general range of performance I should be able to reach with it. I've hit a bit of a brick wall when it comes to researching performance of my card underwater.

hi everyone

this is my 1st nvidia card in a while and its the evga 780 Part Number: 03G-P4-2781-KR
i downloaded the evga oc software and set a fan curve of 1-1 and my h105 is keeping the gpu cool as a cucumber

the question i have is about the boost on evga website it says a boost upto 902 however mine boosts to 966 is this because of the core being at cooler temps allowing this or do you think the bios has been flashed because the base clock is the same

The rated boost clock is what you'll expect it to boost to at least for the core clock. The maximum boost clock varies from GPU A and GPU B. The main reason is due to the ASIC Quality which can be read in GPU-Z. Other smaller reasons are temperature limits, depending on how easily your GPU hits the temperature limit (I think it's usually 79°C by default and the maximum is 95°C if the temp limit is raised via software OC)
