    KFA2 announced today the all new KFA2 GeForce GTX 780 HOF edition, The KFA2 GeForce GTX 780 HOF GPUs are hand picked allowing for an incredible factory boost clock of 1058 MHz. As a result, the KFA2 GeForce GTX 780 HOF is as much as 20% faster than the standard GTX 780, with Titian like performance.

    The HOF is produced with KFA2's signature white PCB giving the card a sleek design completely unlike any other Graphics cards on the market. Almost every aspect of the GTX 780 PCB has been completely redesigned with a new layout and ultra-premium components.

    Most notable of these are the CHiL CHL8318 top-of-the-line VR11.1 compliant digital PWM and IR3550 PowIRstage DrMOS 4.0 compliant chipset, which together create a powerful 8 + 2 phase circuit with 90% efficiency capable of delivering an awe inspiring 480 amps of current to the GPU. Other additions include high quality POSCAP capacitors with 2X longer lifespan and high current Coiltronics inductors. The PCB itself is a custom white substrate with 10 layers for optimum signal routing.

    A card with such monstrous power needs an equally impressive cooling solution, and KFA2 has delivered, with the use Hybrid Vapor Chamber Heat Pipe (HVCP) cooling, a new technology with heat transfer efficiency roughly 30X higher than copper. Twin 90 mm fans with special grooved blades reduce noise while increasing cooling efficiency. The housing is a combination of fire-resistant polycarbonate, anodized metal, and die-cast aluminum alloy.

    The most exciting new feature of the KFA2 GeForce GTX 780 HOF is Hyper Boost button, a KFA2 exclusive, that acts as a hardware supercharger enabling longer boost periods. Hyper Boost increases core clocks by up to 8% Multiple world record 3D benchmark scores have been broken already as a result.

    Backed by a 2 year warranty, available at leading online and in-store retailers throughout Europe.

    KFA2 GeForce GTX 780 HOF 3 GB
    Base Clock : 1006 MHz
    Boost Clock : 1058 (MHz)
    Memory Amount : 3 GB
    Memory Interface : 384-bit DDR5

    Enough with the heat pipes reaching too far over the PCB/cooler!

    Kudos for HardOCP to be the ones to make a HOFF joke in their review.

    The VRM on that card is enough to power 2 other 780's and a motherboard.. awesome over engineering!

    You do not want to be using VRMs at 90% of their power as the smallest power spike could blow things up and an over volted GTX 780 at 1.2Ghz-1.3Ghz should pull around 350W peak so around 280A so this VRM is sub less than 50% overpowered

    TITAN-like performance? Man, half of the GTX 780s out there (the factory overclocked ones) are faster to begin with. This one is just that more faster.

    Power use is 250W with 100% power limit. Most only raise to 106%.. or in the case of the HOF, 126% IIRC.

    250*1.26 = 315W

    That is the maximum amount that card can use. ;)

    Power limiters rely on limiting current not current x voltage so if base current is around 240a max current pull will be around 252a but the bios is non Nvidia abiding it will hit 126% current which is 300a not 315w.

    BTW chips die of voltage or heat
    VRMs die of current or heat
