[KT] The First Liquid-Cooled Steam Machine: Digital Storm Bolt II - Page 31

Could you offer the EVGA GTX 750 Ti FTW ACX Cooling?

I really don't understand what is going on here.

Are you trying to put a $160 card (GTX750 TI) on a $300 case (if its not more, which would sound reasonable)?

I know it sounds crazy, but:
1) I'm waiting for high-end Maxwell to invest the big bucks (don't want depreciation in resale value from 780 in just a few months)
2) Avoid (a tiny bit of) Digital Storm overpricing and get a 750 Ti for only $38. For example: If I order with the 750 Ti instead of originally going 780 SC ACX, then I buy my own additional 780 SC ACX for $509 on amazon, it'll only end up costing me $38 more than if I had originally ordered with the 780 SC from Digital Storm. Effectively giving me an extra GPU (750 Ti) for $40 bucks to sell on eBay or have as backup for second build/streaming system. thumb.gif

High-end maxwell might take several months to arrive. Overpricing? Digital Storm is a company, and thus they are here for a profit. They have also said that they are thinking about selling the case alone in several months, in case you want it that badly, but don't expect it to be cheap, because it won't.

Anyway, I don't recommend the ACX on this case, nor any other cooler that isn't the stock, reference one. Temperatures would be horrible.

In regards to the ACX cooler being horrible in this case, there is ventilation right on top of the graphics card and on the side of the graphics card. There is no reason why it would perform horrible in the Bolt II. Here are two images for reference:

Sad that OCN allows a company to push their product on us. I thought these were unbiased forums.

If they were underhanded about it, I would agree with you, but the company reps are clearly identified. They pay OCN for the privilege, so it's essentially a more helpful, interactive form of advertising.

I get it. I'm ok with it. Just a guy that calls a spade a spade.
