If you are going for maximum overclocking, then yes. The ASUS DirectCU II is an amazing card, but with it being voltage locked, it cannot perform at the level that the Classified can. However, the DirectCU II is one of the best air coolers around, if you were sticking to air. However, since you want to watercool. I'd suggest an EVGA Superclocked as it is reference design and would be able to use a Titan block.
Again, if you are going for the maximum overclock, then the Classifed will be the best and next week EK is releasing a custom block for it. EVGA already has a block, but it is overpriced and doesn't cool the VRM and VRAM actively, just passively.
