DirectCU II
The award-winning DirectCU II design continues to bring cooler and quieter operation to each generation of graphics cards. DirectCU II continues to combine the efficiency of direct contact copper heatpipes with the GPU, massive heatsink, and two fans to dissipate heat quickly. With different demands for power and temperature, ASUS exclusive DirectCU II now comes in a variety of flavors to bring at least 20% cooler performance while maintaining a standard in quiet operations.
GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II

DirectCU II with SSU Thermal Design
Comprising two "S" and one "U" shapes, the DirectCU II with SSU heatpipes are precisely shaped for optimal efficiency and heat transference. Now with their mid-section placed directly over the GPU, this design creates bi-directional flow and shortens heat transfer distance - doubling cooling capacity while maintaining the same size and footprint of existing graphics card cooling solution. This award-winning combination delivers 20% cooler and 2X quieter operations.
Dual Dust-Proof Fans
DirectCU II thermal assembly is further chilled by dual high-performance fans to generate direct airflow onto the large aluminum heatsink to efficiently dissipate heat. Each fan has been carefully tested and fine-tuned to minimize noise even under a full load. Each fan uses a dust-proof design to reduce dust and debris accumulation for increased reliability and improved performance.

High-conductivity copper used in heatpipe formulation creates tube-like vapor chambers, moving heat to a large aluminum heatsink that features extended fins for multiple points of dissipation. The assembly is further chilled by two high performance but carefully-tuned and sound-dampened fans for faster and quieter cooling.
Super Alloy Power
ASUS exclusive Super Alloy Power utilizes specially formulated alloy inside power delivery components to provide a more stable and quieter operation compared to reference design. The specially formulated alloy is highly-magnetic, heat-resistant and anti-corrosive. Super Alloy Power can increase lifespan 2.5 times while operating up to 35 degrees cooler. With Super Hybrid Engine to intelligently monitor and control power management, Super Alloy Power graphics cards are able to deliver up to a 15% performance boost.
Digi + VRM
The application of DIGI+VRM integrates a 10-phase digital power design with digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise level by 30% and enhance power efficiency by 15%. Digi + VRM is designed with wider voltage modulation tolerance to improve overall stability as well as increase overclocking potential.

4 out of 5 eggsIt was a great card 2 years ago

Pros: The card was a cheaper alternative to the higher end 780's. It was able to run games like Battlefield 4 on ultra. It can still run most games from 2012-2013 on High or Ultra.

Cons: Maybe Asus had a bad first initial run with the manufacturing of this card because I seem to be among the few people that are having Black Screens and BSOD's after 1.5 - 2 years of ownership.
The card sags because it has no back plate.

Other Thoughts: I really loved this card when I got it, running Bioshock Infinite at 1080p 60fps was great, but it's definitely showing it's age now with most newer games getting 30-40fps.

With the faulty card I have and few others have I gotta take that Egg off, but I doubt most people who by this card now will have that problem. It's still under warranty, so I'll send it in to ASUS

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a MISTAKE

Pros: I bought this here as a Combo Deal(7/5/14)it was part of a Full Build...and was a GoodDeal for was I was getting, Intel Core i7-4790 Haswell Quad-Core 3.6GHz , ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 , and this Graphics Card.

Cons: Well after about a week of runnin this card I kept getting a Disconect found by a Box in lower righthand corner sayin Graphics Card disconnected from Drivers....and you could smell Card....So I send it back to ASUS,so I get it back after a month in a box,wrote on the box was..a checkmark Pass Burn-In 79*...checkmark NTF.
Also while the Card was getting Fixed,i put a older ATI Radeon 5770 card in,and it ran Great,and also proved there was a problem with this Card.
So I put this Card back in and it runs Good for about a week,then starts the same thing again and still doin it.

Other Thoughts: I am recoverin from a Stroke I had late 2014,that is why this Review has takin so long...Also I'm able $$ to start lookin at some New Graphics Cards...probly something like a Sapphire Radeon R9 Newegg if yall interested in doin a Trade make me a Offer....I've spent alotta GoodMoney here.....Thanks MarkB

1 out of 5 eggsBOO!!

Pros: It is a great GPU overall. It's fast, functions well and really love the NVIDIA on board programming on the desktop to customize it's performance.

Cons: Can we say Black Screen of Death much? So essentially it isn't like I got a great GPU and expected no issue or plugged it into a low grade mobo with a poor PSU. I have an ASUS Maximus Hero 7 mobo, and intel 4.0 quad, 16 gigs of ram, a 1100 watt PSU and yeah this *expletive deleted* could not play games without over heating.

I will give it this, it if I pumped the fan on the on board NIDIA up to 100% it worked okay.

Additionally, this GPU I originally bought for around 350...why it is 599 now no idea but told Asus about it and they were like *EXPLETIVE DELETED!!*

Other Thoughts: If you get this, which you shouldn't for this price, invest and make sure you got plenty of cooling going on. It's a great GPU in how it performs but it's a freaking lemon without some tweaks.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Update I built an I7 system last October and I am running two GTX770 cards in SLI mode and they are the best I have ever run. There has not been a game out there yet that has given me any problems Far cry 4 at the highest setting just rocks. I have seen some of the post about the screens going blank and all that and had the same problem when I was running windows 7, However I changed over to Window 8.1 pro and have not had any problems since. On far cry with the cards overclocked I am running 95 fps which I am running G.Skill 2400 memory with a Asus Maximus vii hero with 2 ssd 250 gb hard drives and water cooled haswell 4.0 and a CORSAIR HX Series HX850 all in a Thermaltake Core V71. So I would buy these cards again anytime as long as I had the right setup to run them.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsCoil Whine and awful CS

Pros: Fast card
Very quiet
Good looking
Protective backplate

Cons: Runs hotter then I'd prefer without applying custom fan curves
Coil Whine...

--Just recently did some further upgrading on my PC and up'd the PSU that I got. I went from a 500W that it had no coil whine with to a 750W. Doing the same things and playing the same games it has become awful. Returned the PSU 3 times and always present. Reinstalled 500W PSU and it is present.

Other Thoughts: Huge disappointment. And trying to get ahold of ASUS is just stupid. Their chat doesn't work, creating a case doesn't work.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Bobilito,

I am sorry you are not having a wondeful experience with your graphics card and are experiencing noise. ASUS uses a Super Alloy Choke design to alleviate and even eliminate coil whine altogether. However, a change of a PSU can have an affect on the GPU as it is responsible for supplying power. Have you tried locking the frames at 60FPS using Nvidia Inspector or adjusted the OC and voltage to the card as some have reported positive results in doing so? If you would like to discuss this case further, please contact me through email and include your reference number within the subject line. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you had tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you. Cs#N150246907

2 out of 5 eggsIt works great, when it doesn't crash

Pros: Runs most of my games on high or ultra depending on how new they are while also doing streaming. And can do other video related tasks very easily.

Cons: Causes my computer to completely crash (clearly a video failure) about 5 to 12 times weekly have re installed, and troubleshooted multiple times with major issues still happening.

Other Thoughts: Bought in the summer of 2013... Although it's great for running games on a casual and semi-hardcore type basis as I do, the problems with the card causing a system wide crash that requires a reboot can be poorly timed when playing games or even just talking to friends on Skype. I most likely will not buy an ASUS branded GPU again.
