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 eggsGreat card when it's on sale

Pros: i got it a few months ago and it runs well. Quiet and slim-design. Has the necessary power to keep up with my mid-tier system playing recent games like dark souls 2, civ:BE, and resident evil on ultra high settings. This card is part of my first build and was relatively easy to install, even for a novice like myself.

Cons: -it's from asus, a company that i dont really trust for their build quality. other reviews have mentioned DOA, and i'm not sure if this is due to user error or problems with the card itself. I personally haven't experienced this issue. I would suggest getting a warranty for this product as a precaution, to negate the most relevant complaint in these reviews.

-the price at the moment of this review is about $100 more expensive than it's worth. this card is worth about $200, which is the price i paid for it. Wait for a sale. Or if getting it now is worth the convenience fee of $100, ignore this last con.

Other Thoughts: i don't normally leave reviews, but this felt necessary after seeing the recent negative reviews. The people disappointed with this card made the mistake of trusting a risky company too much.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Card, Terrible Support

Pros: If the card doesn't freeze up on your system build it runs great.

Cons: From day 1 when I ordered and installed this card it has been nothing but problems. The main problem I have had is that the card will randomly freeze to where it freezes the image currently on screen and there's nothing you can do about it but do a hard reset on the chassis. After troubleshooting this by doing different installs of windows, testing multiple other video card (nVidia and AMD), running test bench software, consulting ASUS and nVidiatech support, sending in the card to nVidia, and etc I have found that the only logical explanation is there's a compatibility issues with my mother board, which funny enough is ASUS as well. I run the ASUS P8Z68-V LE in case anyone else is having this problem. I've lent the card to a friend and had him run it for about 3-4 weeks and he had no issues, but the support I received from ASUS was that it was a hardware problem (which is what I agreed with). I then sent the card into nVidia and they sent the card back to be 1-2 weeks later without the original box I sent in and no explanation to what they did or if it was even replaced.

Other Thoughts: I am likely going to trade this video card with my friend's video card so that I have some sort up to date video card to game on.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I do apologize that you experienced issues with your graphics card. We have not seen nor heard of any incompatabilities for our GTX770-DC2OC product line and our own motherboards. I assume that since the card is and ASUS design and not an Nvidia reference design, the card was sent back without further diagnosing. As the card works without issue in other systems, it would stand to reason that there may be another issue in regards to the instability on your system. 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#N141139983

3 out of 5 eggsASUS GTX 770 2GBD5 256bit

Pros: --- Powerful GPU for its price per CUDA
--- Superb cooling capabilities (Never went higher than 71C under stress benchmarking - Unigine Valley/Heaven 4+hours)
--- Great overclocking software from ASUS (Simple GUI for beginners)
--- Price drop due to 900-series release

Cons: --- Only ASUS GPU product (770's) that has a very well-known issue with random black-screen crashes
--- Only 2GB of VRAM, when most PC games in the future are going to require 2GB+
--- Quite the power eater, using almost all the amps on my 650W NEX Gold PSU. Not an energy-efficient GPU. You can get by with a 600W power supply like me.

Other Thoughts: I'm a CISCO student & I don't game as much anymore, but I thought I'd do a review on this card I have owned since March 2014.

Only reason I wouldn't recommend this card is because it does have random crashes whether you believe it or not. I have experienced a few random crashes during simple non-GPU intensive games like Guild Wars 2 & Company of Heroes, but it's not as bad as people make it to be. Although ASUS has addressed this with a patch, it will still occur every few times here and there. It's not everyday to the point where it's not unbearable and demand a refund ASAP. I own the ASUS 2GB 770 and it works fine, but I heard the 4GB 770 is pretty bad and crashes constantly under game stress. This problem on this card from ASUS GPU lineage is very strange/rare, considering I have owned ASUS GPU cards from 9800GT Ultimate, 550 Ti, 660 Ti and the GTX 770.

I recommend getting your hands on a GTX 970 as it's price per performance is ridiculous. But ultimately, it's up to you as a buyer.

The price at the moment for this card is great for someone looking to run a SLI configuration, but like I stated above, be prepared for a few game crashes due to the VRAM used by ASUS. It's not as bad as silly, rage-prone people make it to be. I still have my GTX 770 and still love it.

1 out of 5 eggsNo support

Pros: Fast when works.

Cons: Has an issue with crashing at random times and thresh hold. Tried contacting Asus through number provided by newegg and the number disconnect. Typically like Asus stuff but this seems like they outsourced to some "b" team production. Buy something different until they get the patches sorted out or make an active effort to fix this card.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus gtx 770

Pros: Overall, the card looks great, the fans are quiet. The color scheme and the make was the reason for this purchase. I have an Asus Maximus Vii Hero and opted for the same brand GPU. I considered the 780 but didn't want to pay the premium.

Cons: From day one, this card failed on me. At first I thought it was my Asus 144hz monitor so I returned it. Then I got an Accer 144hz and didnt have a problem for a few days. My friend gave me a new Asus 27" TN panel 60hz so I decided to return the Accer to save some money. I noticed after I started using this monitor, the crashes happened more frequent to the point of crashing over six times a day during gaming. I only play League of Legends and that by far is not graphic intensive. It got to a point where I thought it was my power supply. In the end, I was so frustrated with the whole experience that I removed the 770 and used the integrated video card for gaming. I had NO problems. Contacted Newegg and asked for a refund for the 770.

Other Thoughts: It was a horrible experience since this was my first build and I had no idea if it was my fault or hardware. Im so happy with my setup now. I am currently running gigabyte gtx 970 SLI with a corsair 1000w PSU(upgrade).

1 out of 5 eggsBlack Screen Lock-Ups

Pros: Was a really nice fast card when it worked, was a huge step up from my old rig hobbling around on EVGA GTS450.

Cons: It would regularly flash to a black screen and freeze my entire PC, requiring a hard reset to get around. I tested everything (memory, CPU, PSU) and even re-formatted and re-installed Windows 7 with just bare-bones drivers to eliminate all potential software conflicts. Every freeze left no indicators in the event viewer as to what caused or lead up to the system freeze. Would crash consistently in any game environment and even froze opening up Chrome and Picture Viewer once each. Even low stress games like Killingfloor (a game built out of a 10 year old Unreal 2004 mod), even though an hour long FurMark stress test never caused the card to fail or blip over 81C.

But as soon as I removed the card and plugged in my old EVGA GTS450, the black freezes stopped and I haven't had another once since. Even got another GTX770, and EVGA SuperClocked, and have had zero black screen freezes. So yeah, the problem was the ASUS card, which made my system simply unusable for the gaming it was built for.

Had Newegg RMA the card for me.

Other Thoughts: Huge props to Newegg for their awesome customer service.

While I have an ASUS motherboard because they make really reliable motherboards, don't get this card. It seems like this is a prevalent problem with ASUS high end CUII Kepler cards, including their GTX780 and GTX780Ti.

But hell, the GTX970's just launched and they come stock with 4GB vRAM and with a greater amount of CUDA cores and more efficient architecture, and they are way cheaper than this card. Save your money, get a GTX970 if you can get your hands on one. Hopefully ASUS's GTX970 fares better than this card did for me.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible experience

Pros: In theory, this card should work really well. Great specs and appearance.

Cons: This card is plagued by the issue described by the past few reviewers. It appears that this model, particularly the 4GB one (which I have), is not able to run stably on its current firmware/vBIOS. I'm RMAing mine back to ASUS because I was stupid and didn't realize that cutting out the UPC on the box would void my ability to return it to Newegg. But I highly doubt this will resolve the problem that SO many people seem to have had. If it does or if there is any update to this situation, I'll revise this review to reflect that.

It's just unfortunate that this product was/is being sold despite this known problem (a quick Google search shows it being around for at least several months). I feel really annoyed, frustrated, and misled.
