Default EVGA Hydro Copper GTX 780 question...

EVGA | Articles | EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Hydro Copper

I am wondering if there are any reviews on this card? I have tried to find some but I cant seem to find a propper review of the EVGA Hydro Copper GTX 780.

What OC clocks are you expected to achieve with this card? How cool will it run? etc etc.

This may not help but I would expect this to run as well as any water cooled gpu. You'll not see more than a few degrees difference between the various blocks on the market. Esthetics yes temps no. Search for air vs water cooled 780 reviews and you'll find answers close enough to know.

If you are going to be increasing voltage you may want to go w/ a different block. The VRM temperature of the EVGA/Swiftech block is a good 15C higher than EK. My VRMs can get extremely hot when I crank the voltage w/ an EK block, w/ a Hydrocopper it definitely wouldn't be stable.

I thought the evga (i.e. komodo) blocks had a problem with the TIM compound they used, and how it was applied, and that if you re-applied it yourself you got a lot lower temps?
