So I saw the price climb on ncix.com for the card with original cooler. I decided to go grab mine before everyone starts charging an arm and a leg. Here's the pics of my unboxing. Love it and the second one is on the way.

Yes I have a stock cooler atm.. waiting for the package for custom watercooling to arrive and will go from there.

Well it would help me justify purchasing another 780

Bear in mind you may only get 90% Scaling vs 100% and watch for the "runt problems"

The prices are still sitting stable at The Egg...!!!

The more important question is...why the heck are you using a stock cooler for your CPU?!

Haha thanks for the pics though, the reference cooler looks so nice. Can't wait to get mine to come in, probably have to wait until Tuesday at least...

Guess we'll see a roundup of 780's 770's 7970's etc I think he mentioned in the review that they already have 2 780's. :)

I'm looking forward to the custom versions to see if they can up the performance or just keep the noise down while stressing them.

I ordered proper custom watercooling stuff and I don't want to use AIO stuff. I sold my H80i which was brand new. so this will do for now, until next week!

If you read the review at tom's and other places where they have done with SLI you will see that the Titan and this plus the rest of Nvidia cards don't have the runts issue. The most you will see is a loss of 2-3 frames! So SLI on the way.

Oh nice, figured you were waiting on some parts. It just looks so weird seeing all these high end parts then a stock cooler right smack in the middle

Yeah I am. I know how stupid it looks with that cooler. I was almost tempted to grab the Corsair H110 until the package arrives but I had to resist
