Custom Waterblock - But what unique/special card to use ? (Matrix, Mars, Lightning ?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi

Is planning a huge casemod in my Caselab S3, and will make a custom fullcover waterblock ... My system right now:

Asus mITX Z77
I7-3770k
TridentX 2400 Mhz
EVGA GTX670 4GB SC

I really want to use a special/unique card to make a waterblock to, but what to pick ? - High OC is one thing I love ... Cards I have been looking at:

ASUS ROG MATRIX-R9280X-3GD5
https://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/MATRIXR9280X3GD5/
- 20-phase and could make some killer OC with watercooling + high voltage ...

Asus MARS 760

- Would be a amazing waterblock with 2 Cores smile.gif

Is their any speciel GTX770 or maybe R9-290 on the marked or on its way ? - Is very open, but something like GTX780 Ti Classified is to expensive smile.gif

Hope you can see what I am looking after smile.gif

I would go with a MSI GTX 770 Lightning, or a 680 Lightning (you can probably get those cheaper used).
EVGA also has the 770 Classified, which is also a good card. You can also look here for a 680 Classified. Since 680 and 770 is pretty similar in performance.

These cards are generally the best overclockers out there smile.gif

EDIT: I am confused, just saw that you also have a thread about best 780's. Which does not make sense if money was tight.

The GTX780 is at my MAX budget, but also one amazing card ... (Cant afford GTX780 ti)

Did not know that there was a GTX770 Classified, will read about it smile.gif

Alright, you should have merged it in to one thread though.
Same story goes for 780's really, a Lightning or Classified are the best available wink.gif
