Ah Mah Ghad, not another 780 post FFS Post here with your 1st impressions if you like Mine arrived this afternoon... Aesthetics of the card with stock cooler are lush. I love the glow of the Geforce logo on the side of the card, really nice touch. My Rig: Cooler Master HAF X i7 920 @ 3.8Ghz HT Enabled (H100i) - Mid 50's°C gaming 6 GB RAM Cruicial M4 256GB SSD I pretty much immediately started up Precision X 4.0 (OcUK is a bad influence ) and worked my way up to a safeish overclock of: Power Target 106% Temp Target 94° +150 GPU +100 Mem Giving me... 1136 MHZ GPU Clock 3105 MHZ Memory So far completely stable. With two monitors (1440p & 1080p) its idling ~38°C. With the custom fan profile I use, in BF3 it was sitting steady at a 58°C (idk ambient atm) at the above clocks. I'm impressed with the stock cooler, really nice bit of engineering. The fan was audible but not intrusive, sitting around 55% at the above temp under gaming load. Only played BF3 so far, Low settings with Ultra Mesh and a bit of AA for competitive play. With vsync at 1080p on my Asus 144Hz screen it was sitting steady between 100-144 FPS. Gameplay it amazingly smooth, noticeably more so than my 680 was. In terms of frame rate it hasn't been a major upgrade tbh, but its a much smoother over all experience so far. I'll update this later after I've tried a few other games out.
