People actually play games on those low level cards? GTX Titan SLI or bust imo.
Oh, the irony... :rolleyes:

Unless you are a ''120FPS all the time'' guy that has a LOT of money.

When you force an AIB to stick with a reference design, don't be suprised when they leave you
That is probably the reason...but not the way you intend it.
Club3D use SOLELY reference design.

There is no reference design for the GTX 770 with the exception of a limited initial run (and whatever Inno3D are doing)

It's also pretty safe to assume that the high-cost Titan cooler that sits on the GTX 780 won't be around forever either.

If Nvidia continue the trend of allowing AIB's to have custom cooling from day 1, AND those designs are barely more expensive than reference (if at all), what hope has a reference design-only AIB whose prices aren't that cheap have?

Club3D wasnt Reference Only desing.

There 600 series used CoolStream on there RoyalQueen editions. Plausable if they needed a non-reference cooler for 700 series they would have continued with that.

I'm guessing it's at least in part some sort of cheaper manufacturing deal with TUL has had an influence. Seeing as TUL only produce AMD stuff. A deal that maybe works for both parties on ease & efficiency of production.

My Club3D version of GTX 560 also seems to have a non-reference cooler. Looks very much like the image above, minus one fan. So it would seem that they do make non-reference coolers every once in a while.
