as you can see, it is clearly in the center of the block/heatpipes i went ahead and ordered, also had a 20 off coupon for newegg using visacheckout soooo lets hope EVGA doesnt let me down, as i loved my 780 acx sc, even if it wouldn't oc very much. ill just be running 1 card so the cooler doesn't affect me very much. Just hope it oc's a little more than my 780.

link for card in stock: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487079&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6202798&SID=

and link to review here: http://www.overclockers.com/evga-gtx980-superclocked-acx2.0-graphics-card-review

also for anyone still trying to find a card, this site has helped me quite a bit: http://www.nowinstock.net/computers/videocards/nvidia/gtx980/

If it's anything like the past reference cards, I usually drop 2-3C. That's worth it IMO

It's really easy so that's why I usually end up doing it even though the benefits aren't spectacular

Remove the reference blower, remove paste, reapply and reassembly?

I bought it in the store i work at, so if i end up screwing it up, il just deliver it back, and grab a new xD

Will Arctic Silver 5 work with this card?
