The reason I plugged mine in is because I removed my vrm stock heat sink and it was plain and looked like it was missing something and I thought it looked way better plugged in. The waterblock for the vrm looks way better than the stock heatsink just way small. Hope that makes scene.

It does to me thumb.gif
I just pluged it in because some day I may need it and I rather plug it now than remove all the GPUs in a future.

The EVGA ACX cooler looks awesome but so far the 690/780/Titan have the best looking air coolers so far in my opinion!

Reference 770 doesn´t have shiny letters... does it?

I have a 770 ACX too, the only thing I´m not happy about is that the metal plates are golden.. I didn´t care too much about it until I saw the 760 ACX... same in silver, DOUH!
I may switch to 760 because it matches much better with my dominator platinums... wait.. better not xD

Why would you downgrade from a 770 to 760 just to have a different color cooler, seems crazy!

can anyone who purchase from corsair let me know the shipping costs you paid? not keen on entering all my personal / cc info just to get the shipping costs on their site. my only reference is newegg and its 14.99 ship cost when they get them in. I appreciate your time.

not sure why but this case pulls at my wallet , screaming BUY ME! BUY ME NOW! lol tongue.gif

one more thing, I know its early on and not sure if anyone has tried, but is there enough space up top for the corsair H100 with push pull fan setup, with gigabyte G1 sniper 3 which is an E-ATX mobo? (its dimensions as typically installed are 13 wide by 15 high)

thanks , Peace smile.gif
