    I think the price is not that bad at all for a high end graphics card wih full waterblock. 899 swizterland francs ( same as dollars ).

    Finally a decent price for factory watercooled graphics card. Considering the reference design price tag.


    I wonder if is factory overclocked ? What do you think about that swiftech waterblock ?

    Theres a thread here about some one with this card thats disappointed with its overlocking,apparently the only cards that evga bins is theire classy cards,so just because this comes water cooled dont expect a golden card.

    Unless they have increased the power limit from the max 106% and unlocked the voltages from the rather paltry +38mv, we likely to see overclocks in the ball park of every other 780 out there.

    In other words if you get lucky you might get a 780 that can clock to 1200Mhz + or you might not. At least with lower temperatures you should see a very consistant max boost clock.

    As you would with basically any after market cooled 780,unless you have really high ambient.
    i really dont see a point to water cooling a 780 with the voltage being locked.

    Is just for having low noise and temps, is this card overclocked out of the box or comes with stock frequency ?

    Im not looking for hardcore overclok, but just for lower temps and noise.

    This card comes with full waterblock, backplate and a plenty of warranty.

    If you buy stock you have to get the waterblock and you already loose the warranty for mounting the waterblock, and without a backplate wich is nice for aesthetics.

    Are you sure about that? I thought EVGA cards would not void the warranty for changing the TIM or adding WB's.

    Most (that are in the know I suppose) wouldn't be expecting anything... its just under water. People think more cards are binned than really are I think. The smartest thing to do is to buy the cheapest non reference PCB model and hope for the best. ;)

    That said, how is this a deal? Its a $670 card at newegg that would make that block what $230? Yikes!

    EDIT: Whew, $810 here in the states!
