I want two of them asap!
The SC ACX cooler has 1x6+2x8mm and only the 2x8mm make contact with the gpu die, well the die ain't that big after all so
Maybe the VRM cooling has an effect. Looking at it and the VRM temps are being dumped to the heatsink with thermal pads on the front of the card.
The other four custom cooler version cards TPU reviewed all have the VRM cooling done either by separate heatsink (Gigabyte/Asus/Palit) or by PCB heatplate (MSI)
I was looking at the pictures of the cards and I don't think the FTW ACX model will be loud at all.
Guesstimating from the pictures the four heatpipes it has would probably be 4*6mm. Also the front view of the card suggests it uses a heatplate instead of direct contact which would be great.
Overall the 4GB FTW ACX looks like a winner. Although I'm afraid what it's pricing will be..
Looked at US EVGA and moving from stock -> SC -> FTW is 10$ increase each step. Apparently stock blower/vanilla/acx 249$ and SC blower/ACX 259$ so different cooler options are the same price but factory OC increases price.
Vanilla 2GB is 249$ and Vanilla 4GB adds 40$ so it's at 289$.
So are we going to be looking at a 299-309$ for the 2768??
Which would probably mean 269-279€ over here. For that price not quite sure I'd pick it up.. It would have to be an amazing card for me buying it at that price.
EVGA-JacobF could you give us a hint of what the cooling on the 2768 will be like
