ACX is faster? I don't know why you would say that, they're the same speed per that review. The overclocked benchmarks were in the margin of error and the ACX was .1 fps faster - now you can't honestly look at anyone in the eye and say that is of significance, can you? Both cards are basically the same speed +/- 5% depending on how far they overclock; and overclocking is dependent on the quality of the chip you receive. Both coolers appear to be fantastic, although the asus was slightly quieter at load and cooled slightly better. The main downside to the DC2 being the cost - the cost is higher than the EVGA ACX.
As to whether the Asus is worth the slight price premium is up to the user, but it's definitely a nice, sexy card. They're both good cards, actually.Edited by xoleras - 6/12/13 at 4:02pm
