One of the better aftermarket 780's without a doubt, runs very cool n' quiet as expected thumb.gif

Default bios:
Max vCore: 1.200v
Power/Temp Limit: 110 / 82c
Min/max fan: 38% / 100%

Those looking to push this card harder with a modded bios, look no further than Skyn3t's 780 DCII bios (flash at your own risk, usual warnings etc):

Also Asus's updated "quiet" BIOS to allow fan speed to be lowered to 27%: http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/140877/asus-gtx780-3072-130620.html
The fan speed is the only difference with this one, if you want additional voltage/power limit then use Skyn3t's bios.

Damn looks pretty nice. I hope ASUS cleaned up their cooler a bit; their DCUII's last gen were sloppy.

On the note of aesthetics though, it reminds me a bit of their Matrix's.



Also interesting to see the fan from the DCUII Mini being used here for one of the fans.

It's 2 slot, so really no more than other aftermarket cards? The backplate makes the card more rigid and holds it straighter smile.gif

It won't do anything to your PCI slot lol rolleyes.gif

The shroud does look a bit Sapphire-ish!
Love the look of it though.

The front fan is the same as the one on the 670 mini card, but I wonder why they're using two different fans. headscratch.gif

It sure as hell isn't a reference card, I just posted the PCB pic from source...I don't think it's the actual DCII PCB because they wouldn't have rushed to strip off the cooler just yet.

This is the GTX770 DCII's PCB and I would expect the 780 DCII to be nothing less:





Removed that reference pic from my original post tongue.gif

I get that, it was more of a figurative comment. I know it wont rip it off. It just looks like a monster

Also, its 4 slot. Not two slot
