Default Asus ROG Poseidon Platinum GeForce GTX 780

SO, what do you guys think?

Asus ROG Poseidon Platinum GeForce GTX 780 3GB GDDR5 90YV04H2-M0NA00 Tarjeta Grfica

How about a review of this card?

I currently have a ASUS DCUII OC (GTX 780) and I would like to watercool it with the blocks from EK - why? Just because I am putting most of my system under water so I will also do it for looks and sound.

It is 90 euros more expensive than the regular DCUII - but the water block and backplate will cost 125 euros for my DCUII.

Would you think it would be worth to get a second one for SLI?

I would think that the design is a compromise.. That is to say that (and I'm guessing) it probably won't cool as well as the DCII if only using air and probably won't cool as well as a custom loop if using water.

If it turns out to be better then they will have done an amazing job.

I read one review about this card, but it didn't really compare it to a quality air cooler like the DCII. Without a solid comparison I would stick with the known and get a DCII if you will keep it on air only, and stick with a known quality block if you will water cool. It is a great idea and COULD produce excellent temps if it is properly designed (I would hope that is the case given it is carrying the ROG badge).

Any HWC review upcoming for this?
