^^^ I believe quite awhile ago when we were first running the Valley Bench...we found that the score improves dramatically with CPU OC'ing...

The Valley link in my Signature is at highest OC's achieved so far (GPU's) ;)

After being spoiled by the 570/680/780 performance/noise/temperature ratio, I could never bring myself to buy a hot/noisy GPU again, no matter the performance (looks at the R290).

^^^^ 780Ti is anything but "hot n noisy" ......been thru a lot of GPU's in multi configs and these things are amazingly quiet n cool running ;)

Now I know what Slik was talking about with his Titans

I make no implications that anyone other than AMD is running hot/noisy these days...

^^^^ I mean really the best bet is to put these Cards under water....especially the 290X....but these would also benefit big time ;)

The current crop of nvidia cards does seem to really well on the noise/heat fields. I have two 780 EVGA SC ACX's compared to the one 670 SC I had in it last, and they certainly don't run any louder. Maybe a touch quieter, but it's hard to be 100% certain without proper testing.

Well I'm still trying to make up my mind about these cards, but now I am wondering even more as I have heard over on the evga forums that the 780ti classified is due on the 29th.

Superclocked vs Classified. Damn decisions.
