I like the look of the reference card better, and I could order one right away, but if the ACX is binned higher I'd like to wait for one of those to become available.
I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that EVGA usually only bins for FTW and Classified models. I could be wrong, though.
However, the ACX is certainly superior to stock cooling. Since the GTX 780's performance is highly dependent on keeping temps below 80*C to avoid throttling, the ACX cooler is a major factor in its performance at higher resolutions as seen below:Edited by svenge - 6/3/13 at 7:44pm
