I keep reading reviews saying the Direct CU2 cooling makes the card really quiet (which is very important for me) but this review seems to show it's not any more quiet.
What do you mean by "The 780 dc2 max power draw was locked to 275W that's why." Sorry, I'm a bit out of date on my tech knowledge.

I've had lots of 600 series from asus and the power draw was always tweaked helping them getting awards. I had a 680 dc2t 1293MHz/7600MHz that didnt even require a vcore bump because it was already at 1.175V during full boost neither a power target increasement. Never seen that card exceeding 80% TDP (max stock power is 220W) or 65° when gaming at full load so no wonder they received tons of awards.

600 series weren't power hogs at all but 780's or 780ti's are really challenging Asus. The 780dc2 did fine because at 100% TDP the max draw was 250W and the 780ti DC2@100% TDP is 300W so that's a difference of 50W.

The msi 780ti gaming is noticeable quieter than the 780ti DC2OC. After the 780 DC2OC release they offered a bios with a quieter fan profile so it might be the case again with a 780ti.

But the card is already @ 80C in the review. A quieter fan would be waffles. Also, giant fail for not listing fan RPM s...unless I missed that.

These sites really need to test:

Auto
1300
1900
Max

And then list temps and noise levels. I see a lot of sites list the cards @ the same dB, like guru3d.

The ACX ti and the MSI ti were both rated @ 39db, but the ACX was spinning @ 1900 RPM and the MSI was @ 1300 RPM. I've owned the ACX 780 and there is a LARGE difference from 1300 to 1900.

It's sad, but the only way to really find out is to buy them all and see for yourself.

TF4 Gaming cooler has more cooling capacity and it is bit more quiet at stock, both are very quiet but real difference is when fans are at higher speeds when TF4 G. has much lower temp. Speeding up DC2 dont do much in terms of lowering temps. TF4 can shave off a lot .

I am new to this. But does the silicon lottery effect review samples?

Probably unless AMD or Nvidia Cherry pick samples to send to reviewers. tongue.gif
