MSI 780 Lighting -vs- ASUS 780 DC2OC

post #1 of 14

Hello guys thumb.gif


Fainally and after waiting for so long, I now have the enough amount of $$ to spend on a 780 graphic card.
As I was looking around, all reviews were actually pointing at MSI and ASUS cards.. So I've chosen to select these two:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121779

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127754





If you were to choose between these two, please tell me which you'd prefer.

I need your experience with such cards. thumb.gif

For me, I like the MSI simply because its look and LED lights, but reviews in newegg weren't that good though frown.gif
Asus seems to be fine and no one has complained about it so far.

Thank you very much redface.gif

I think Lightning is better smile.gif
But if you got ASUS MATRIX like GTX580 MATRIX then I guess it will be same level with lightning. Too bad ASUS didn't release MATRIX version from 680 to 780.

Well, I think MSI is better in terms of cooling system
Thank you

Lightning. Better voltage control, better cooler, better looks, and MSI rma/warranty service is awesome.

Depends on the price, when I got my dcu2 it was $130 cheaper then the lightening and if that's the case still just stick too the dcu2 easily does 1200 on the core and is dead silent while doing it.

I have a DCUII but haven't actually installed it yet (I will in two days) but I'm going to nvidiainspector the card and if I have elpida memory then I'm finding a way to return it so I can get a MSI lightning. Both seem to be great cards though but if they're at the same price point, go Lightning.

You're welcome mate wink.gif
But I do agree that this cooling from 780 lightning is very very good than previous twinfrozer. Huge heatsink + tripple fan. I even use mod VBIOS with unlocked volt 1.21volt still temp under 70c.
