780 classified hydrocopper 2 vs evga stock 780 + xspc razor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi
In case the prices of the r9-290x is too high for it to be worth it, which one of these two options would be better?
On one hand I get a nice non reference pcb, but less good cooler and on the other a stock pcb with a better cooler.

The rest of my loops consists of:
360 and 240 black ice sr1
swiftech mpc655
5 ap45 fans
swiftech apogee hd cpu block

Also I heard that the hydrocopper block is a lot more flow restrictive, would this be fine with my current setup? How about if I wanted to do sli later on with another hydrocopper?

Finally, on this site it shows that the swiftech komodo waterblock (pretty much the same as the hydrocopper block im guessing?) doesn't have very good vrm/vram temps, but this was tested on a stock 780. How would the classified fair against stock 780 in this regard?

Also if you have any other suggestions please advise me! (but no nickel plated waterblocks stuff please, trying to keep everything copper if I can)

Thanks

Get the Classified no doubt. Better overclocks that can be ran safely without worrying if your VRMs will give out any day.

The block is restrictive yes, but you're running one and it won't be an issue with the pump you have. Even two cards.

VRMs are cooler running on other blocks, but it's not that big of a deal imo. You'll still get great clocks with good temps. VRMs can take a temperature beating. I think they are rated for 120'C, so if they are hitting 80'C or so, no big deal right?

How about the issue of the higher VRAM temps?
What you say about the vrm makes sense, they are designed to run hot, but vram is not right?

Also will the single d5 be able to pump through two hydrocoppers in sli?

If you get a classified with Samsung chips, they can easily run passively. Elpida run warmer though.

My old Titan card had Samsung memory chips exposed from factory on the top pcb of the card. They ran warmish even with a good overclock on them.

Your d5 pump will do just fine. I'm running two ek 780 blocks with the CPU and a 480 mm radiator with the pump between setting 2 and 3 and my flow is great and the pump is quiet. I know ek blocks are designed to be high flow but the d5 pump is a beast.

Also next week you should see ek releasing their version of the classified block. You could purchase the stock classified and order the ek blocks if your still worried about temps and flow from the hydro copper blocks.

Classifieds for sure man!

Binned chips with far better OC potential. You wont regret that decision.

would you mind showing me a chart/review of the new 780 Classy Hydro-copper showing that in fact it is as restrictive as the old one ?
