Is there a certain reason to get the classfied 770s?? You also don't need the EK FC bridges for that certain gpu block. If you want those style they're called EK Terminals

I was wanting the classifieds because I wanted 4Gb versions of the 770 and I have always had good luck with classifieds for overclocks.

I was also thinking of 760's as well but there was not much of a selection in 4Gb models.

As for the Ek Terminals... I could not find where they make that type that are the same clear. Is there a better block set to allow for this look and make use of the aesthetics of the bridges?

Well the FC bridges will not work with current block and EK is working on an acrylic terminal (I think...don't quote me on that) but why not also go acrylic tubing for SLI. Bitspower and EK make them as well plus it is less hassle as the terminals are a b**** to put on without o-rings popping out everywhere. I also checked EK's website for compatibility with the 4GB classified and the sad news is that it doesn't fit. Also an article by EK.

I never knew you could do sli hardlines... that is good to know

Also I didn't catch that at all! Seems I need to rethink my GPU's. I would still like 4Gb gtx 770's water cooled if I can find a compatible set.

So basically saying is that you either go 2GB varient to fit with your waterblock or you buy a different brand that supports 4GB but that will be hard to find...I think. Most companies go with what's more demanding which is usually 2gb

If you want to watercool the 770 Classifieds, just get GTX 770 Classified Hydro Coppers:

Same price as a 770 and a decent waterblock.

The Corsair AX860i is a waste of money some of that high price comes from the Corsair Link which only work when it feels like it

The normal AX860 would be better value but even that one is overpriced and has coil whine problems

A Cooler Master V would be much better value its the same PSU as the AX860 its just cheaper

Or if money is no problem and you want the best PSU you can buy this is what you want
