Which brand GTX 780 is best for SLI, or is refrence cooker better?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As the topic say, is the blower style fan really helpful for a SLI rig, or will the normal third party fan be better?
I'm kind of partial to the Asus cooler.

I'd go with the blower for a 780 SLI configuration. Boost 2.0 relies on keeping temps down, and having 2x 230w TDP cards with fan-type exhausts won't help matters.

So, if I'm using a AIO cooler, will the blower be good, I've heard that it won't move air around enough?

And if Blower, does the brand not matter, pick which ever I can get RMA easiest(I'll be out of state, so Asus will be the best, as I'll be in Taiwan near a Asus center)

Stateside EVGA, but since you're overseas then go with what you think will be easiest.

+1 for blower-style in SLI.
Aside from not dumping heat on each other it is one sexy reference cooler biggrin.gif
