[Various] Asus GTX 780 DirectCU II Reviews - Page 4

post #31 of 565
Will there be waterblocks for this? Do they usually make waterblocks for the DirectCU II cards?

Probably because Colorful did it a while ago with some other card tongue.gif



But in all seriousness, I suspect it might have something to do with the GPU-side of the heatsink being hotter than the voltage-regulation side. Lame explanation though, still have no clue why the whole designs are so different tongue.gif

EK had blocks for 580 DCII and 680 DCII...but I dunno if it's safe to bet on it.

If you're looking for an aftermarket PCB to make the most out of a waterblock then EVGA Classified is the way to go (or so I hear).

The fan in the back is weird. Looks like a combination of blower style and the other usual style that I don't know what it's called. LOL..

I'd really want to see the cooling performance of this card...

Bumped for TPU's Review

The DCII cooler keeps the temp below 70(best 780 air cooler TPU tested yet) while having the same load noise as stock 780 cooler(36 dba).

looks ugly... I think the older bulky design looks better!
post #38 of 565
Amazing design and only 2 slots, can't get better than that for only $50 more.

Could a moderator change this thread's title to "[TPU] Asus GTX780 Direct CU II Review", please? I've changed everything in my first post to reflect TPU's review, this thread is now about the review instead of just the pictures.

Thanks!
