Then I fired up FFXIV:ARR (which I've not played for a while) and ran it in borderless windowed. When I tabbed out and then back in the game started to stutter a lot and eventually froze. I tested this three time but each time I got the same freeze. Then I tried again in Fullscreen which worked so I thought it was a driver bug.

Today I wanted to play Borderlands 2 with a friend but again the game froze so I uninstalled the drivers using DDU and reinstalled 334.67 (which were problem free for well over a month) but got the same freeze. So I thought it was my OC (1237/7200) and played with default values. All was well for an hour until the game crashed.

I ran Valley at stock clocks to see what the hell is going on and I noticed the temps were higher than usual (80 degrees). I tried a mild OC (1247/7200) and Valley crashed after 15 seconds. I've previously been able to make a full run at 73 degrees and higher clocks/mem.

What's going on?

Air cooled or water? Assuming air by the ugly temps, have you cleared dust etc out of the cooler?

Well I am about to purchase a card.. I'm just worried that I wont get good performance from the EVGA 780 Ti SC even in SLI?

Who can ease my mind here.. Am i wasting my money here?

so your worried that you wont get good performance out of 2 of the best cards on the market right now for gaming. What are your other options.


the 780 ti is the pinnacle of gaming performance right now. It's the top model. And you will have 2. Unless you need more than 3gb of vram how could performance be bad.

Something is borked! try to reinstall DX and microsoft.net framework or go back to 332.21! smile.gif

IMO, get the Classifieds, (Voltage control up to 1.500V), water them, OC them to 1400mhz and forget about Maxwell all together! tongue.gif

Well, that isn't exactly what i meant.. I meant some people are saying that one 780 Ti is not that good as another? This is why im getting confused..

Some are saying ACX is better some are saying Galaxy is better (from reading on other forums)

If i get two EVGA 780 Ti's Superclocked reference design cards in SLI under water will i be able to smash anything at ultras settings on a 120hz monitor minus some AA? I'd like to get a moderate overclock on it too, but some are saying the EVGA 780 Ti Superclocked can't be overclocked much but i think it's luck of the draw

I want a good gaming experience, and i guess I need confirmation from real world users this is why im asking thumb.gif

If i get 2 of these will I be good to go with games on max/ultra settings and smooth gameplay?

What's going on?

I have also gotten stuttering/complete lock-ups in BF4 ever since updating to the latest WHQL drivers. The lock-ups/freezes are not resolvable by the usual CTRL+ALT+DEL and I have to force-restart the computer. I regret ever installing the new drivers.

I haven't tried a rollback yet however.

Dude i would love to go for them, but I wasn't not planning on spending nearly $1k on a GPU lol! You are going to make me broke! hahaha

Though if these classifieds are as good as you say, I'm starting to think it wont hurt to be broke for a couple days

I am guessing you're talking about these correct?

yes those are the best cards for watercooling right now in my opinion. i am sorry they are so much for you. They are $750 in the us.

Sorry about before I wasn't trying to be mean. it just sounded funny. For gaming the performance will be incredible with 2 780 ti's no matter the one you pick.

Exactly those! The thing is all 780Ti are voltage locked to 1,212V unless you do a hardmod (soldering a resistance on the PCB) so you are susceptible to silicon lottery if you go the reference way!
With the classys even if you get unlucky in the lottery you can always overvolt them and on top of it you have very good VRM's to withstand the current unlike the reference cards!
IMO its a win-win situation! wink.gif

Well I think im going to pick this one up today then biggrin.gif I'm still in the process of updating my loop so I'm going to go for one now and another later and i hope I will not have problems finding another card in 2 months..

Yeah australian prices are BS! I hate living here they charge so much tax on anything, we stand true to the most expensive country in the world puke.gif


I just looked at some EK blocks for the classifieds, I'm assuming no need for full cover water blocks for this card?
