Not this time. I may put on the NZXT brackets if I am feeling adventurous.
EK blocks are too expensive and a ***** to sell.

I just want to have a great card I can keep for 4 maybe 5 years

You won't find anyone here who keeps a card for 4 or 5 years. That's ridiculous....

GTX 770 started showing its age the second it was released. You do know it's a 680 with faster memory? Thats it.

Buy a good card. You'll enjoy it.

Well obviously not going cheapish on my rig anymore :3

May consider Kraken G10 cooling in near future but 1st need to decide whether going dual tower or AIO for CPU.

Has anyone done a thermal paste 'upgrade' on these cards yet with any decent results?

With custom cooling changed MX-4 for thermal grizzly conductonaut very good results almost 10C drop in full load compare to mx-4 but changing stock paste with something like mx-4 or other good paste if you keep stock cooler no difference at all
