Also since switching from my 7850 to my 780 ti, it seems my main screen (conneted via HDMI) has got brighter, the blacks especially are noticeably brighter.

Is there any fix for this or do I just modify the screen's settings in it's OSD?

Couple things.

1. Still very happy w/ my MSI Gaming Twin Frozr 4 (what a mouth full!!). Just blows the doors off the EVGA ACX and Asus DC2 coolers for the 780's. But I think they are the same for the Ti's. Much quieter...or cooler, your choice really. I run mine @ 1900 RPM which is about the same noise floor as my case fans @ full speed and I top out @ 68C in 26C room temps. Interestingly, the card's clock does bounce around from 1189 to 1200 to 1210 from time to time. And this happens when I'm below the power target.

2. What is wrong w/ the 335 drivers? I played BF4 last night and everything seemed fine.

Well, ok. There is one thing wrong. W/ 332 and below I was able to use Nvidia Inspector's Multi Display Saver to reduce my card's clocks and effectively shave 75 watts from the wall. 334 beta, whql, and 335 broke this for me. Anyone else using a 144hz monitor able to get their Ti to run around 300ish Mhz w/ ram speed down too? It's driving me nuts...worse, I don't know what can be done?

What do you guys think of this? I have 290s but these look tempting biggrin.gif

I am having trouble deciding on which 780 Ti to get. My entire next build hinges on which one I am going to get and it will take up most of my budget. Here are my choices.

1. Asus ROG Matrix 780 Ti Platinum - This is my first choice but I have heard that the direct cu ii card has some clearance issues with the Corsair Obsidian 250D and this looks like it uses pretty much the same cooling system. I'll admit I want to buy this card just for the looks. If it doesn't fit the 250D then I will have to get a mid tower.

2. Asus Diretcu II - A more sensible choice. Leaving it all black would go with a lot more builds.

3. Asus reference 780 Ti- My question about this one is how loud is the reference cooler while gaming? I am considering getting this and then later on cooling it with the NZXT Kraken G10 and NZXT Kraken X60. Will I need to install VRAM heatsinks under the G10's fan? If so can someone recommend some low profile ones?

Also is 3GB of VRAM enough for 2560X1600?

It's a bit silly to buy a graphics card on looks in my opinion but then again I don't really care what the inside of my case looks like.

Stock cooler is really quiet and looks pretty swish, does get a little noisier than other cooling solutions at load but you'd usually have the in game noise to offset against how much you perceive this. Aftermarket coolers are better than the reference design though.... I was quite surprised how much hotter the 780ti's with reference coolers were than my 780s SC with ACX (both EVGA cards). I know it's not apples-for-apples though so a direct comparison is meaningless but was interesting (one was higher clock with fewer cores, the other vice-versa).

If you're tempted for an aftermarket cooler in the future why not look at EVGA Classified cards? Biggest OCing headroom, nice design, voltage control etc

EDIT: yeah, 3GB is fine for that resolution.

Contacted the vendor (Overclockers.co.uk) to RMA my card and they told me that they'd swap it for a new Gigabyte. So I replied with basically a rant about how useless that would probably be (faulty cards after faulty cards, RMA's followed by RMA's) so I'm waiting for their reply... will keep you guys posted.

Also posting to check to see if I've done the rig signature alright!

What card are you returning?

I rmad my card with overclockers uk, a month later they had still not given me a new one. so I got a refund and went to another shop.

I can run Valley stable at 1395 core on mine. Not seen a higher ref clock till now!

Yeah, it's an EVGA Superclocked.

I've always had the best luck with reference cards. My 3 reference 7970s clock better than the other 6 non reference cards I had at various points and my 780 Ti reference seems to clock very well. It's all luck on what chip you're going to get anyways, you might get a reference card that overclocks 400Mhz or a ROG Matrix card that only does 40Mhz.

Yep, I'll ask for a refund if they continue with this nonsense. They constantly run out of them too, probably because they have so many RMA's to deal with.

To Dave and other members, I was an owner of a Ti GHz card and for me it was also and unstable card.

I would steer clear of gigabyte cards if you can. I am currently running two MSI ref Ti's and they are awesome stable. Getting rid of them but would recommend MSI ref cards.
