Five Custom GeForce GTX 760 Cards To Feast Your Eyes On Before Tomorrow's Launch

With the official launch scheduled for tomorrow, NVIDIA's latest product has been making the rounds for a few days now. Specification leaks, tests and pictures have been showing up in various places around the web, depicting and detailing different versions and flavors of the card. Today we have for you five different non-reference designs from five distinct manufacturers, these are Colorful, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D and Zotac.

Colorful GeForce GTX 760 OC
Colorful's custom GTX 760 card borrows from NVIDIA's previous generation designs, specifically, it uses a reference GTX 680 PCB and cooler. The card comes factory overclocked, with the GPU base clock set at 993 MHz and the boost clock at 1058 MHz. On the other hand, memory clock is set at 1502 MHz (6008 MHz effective), same as the reference design.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 770 SOC Pictured

The GeForce GTX 770 SOC is among the five attractions at Galaxy's Computex booth. With GTX 770 being not so different in design to a GTX 680, we imagine Galaxy to have spent very little R&D in coming up with the GTX 770 SOC (super-overclock), which looks nearly identical to the GeForce GTX 680 Hall of Fame aka KFA2 GTX 680 Limited Edition OC V4 graphics card from last year. You get the same all-white combo of non-reference design PCB and cooler, the same strange display I/O of a DisplayPort next to three mini-HDMI connectors, but with higher clock speeds, and GPU Boost 2.0, which will surely take advantage of the cooler to sustain boost states.

Galaxy Also Unveils First GTX 780 Graphics Card with Custom PCB

Every GeForce GTX 780 graphics card launched till date features an NVIDIA-reference design PCB, or one that looks like it, with minor changes, until now. Galaxy unveiled the first GTX 780 graphics card with a non-reference design PCB, the GTX 780 Super Overclock Hall of Fame (SOC-HOF). The card uses a milky-white colored PCB, with a strong VRM design to support factory-overclocked speeds (undisclosed), and record-seeking overclocking. The card ships with a meaty triple-slot air-cooler, which uses a dense aluminum fin-stack that's fed by four 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes, and ventilated by two large 80~92 mm fans.

Galaxy Also Shows off GeForce GTX 780 Twin Fan Graphics Card

Galaxy started its GeForce GTX 780 lineup off with a single reference-design card, but plans to make some major additions. One of them is the GTX 780 Twin Fan. Pictured below, the card uses a unique fin-stack heatsink that uses a mix of aluminum and copper fins. Four 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes conduct heat from the GK110 GPU to this colorful fin-stack, which is ventilated by a pair of 80 mm spinners. Alas, this unique dual-slot cooler sits on a bland NVIDIA-reference design PCB, just like on every GTX 780 card ever sold. Galaxy should ship the card with factory-overclocked speeds, but didn't disclose them.

Galaxy Shows off Z87 Hall of Fame Motherboard

Galaxy extended its top-end Hall of Fame (HOF) brand extension to motherboards, and unveiled its flagship socket LGA1150 motherboard, the Z87 HOF. The board uses two PEX8747 x48 bridge chips, probably chained, to give out four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots, all four of which stay at electrical x16, no matter how you populate them. The board uses a 16-phase VRM to power the CPU, which draws power from two 8-pin EPS connectors, in addition to the 24-pin ATX. The board takes advantage of its unique PCI-Express configuration to support 4-way SLI and CrossFireX.

Sadly, the board doesn't impress quite as much with storage connectivity. You get four SATA 6 Gb/s ports, an mSATA/mPCIe, and an eSATA. DVI, HDMI, 8-channel HD audio, and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of it. The board gives you plenty of overclocking features, such as onboard OC controls, dual-BIOS, voltage measurement-points, an OC module, and a feature-rich UEFI setup program.

Galaxy Launches the GeForce GTX 770 GC Graphics Card

Galaxy Microsystems, a leading graphics card manufacturer, today announced the all new GeForce GTX 770 GC 2GB factory overclocked, custom cooled graphics card. The GC edition cooling features a twin fan design and quad nickel plated heat pipes housed in a sleek, dark finished aluminum cover.
