DirectCU II
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 780 DirectCU II
DirectCU II Featuring a 10mm Heatpipe
The ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC graphics card features a 10mm heatpipe instead of the conventional 8mm width. This particular variation boosts overall heat dissipation by up to 40% compared to the reference design, delivering 30% cooler and three times quieter operation.

Super Alloy Power & Digi + VRM
The application of DIGI+VRM integrates a 10-phase power design to use 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.
Multi-Directional CoolTech Fan
The CoolTech fan moves air downward and outward with its dual, integrated blade design offering wider and more consistent airflow to maintain cooler and quieter operation.
Included Backplate
Included backplate provides protection and support while increasing heat dissipation from the PCB.

4 out of 5 eggsGTX 780!!

Pros: Its a beast by far the best card I have ever owned. Its able to run BF4 at high everything. and it could run anything at ultra, really smooth. makes little noise. color red and it has a back plate aswell.

Cons: The price its a little too high. The Size of this card is enormous, I had to remove some hard-drive holder thingy to make it fit.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed on first run right out of box

Pros: Sorta works sometimes.

Cons: Has a huge amount of artifacts no matter what. Crashes on minecraft as well as all of my other games and even while I am simply surfing the internet.

Other Thoughts: I put it in got all the drivers loaded and all my fans plugged back in and the first time I used it my computer overheated and shut down. Since then I have gotten a liquid cooler an 850W power supply, and yes I have tried all the drivers. Absolutely nothing has helped. Almost about to give up on ASUS and Nvidia and go somewhere else with my money.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome GPU

Pros: Fantastic power, 3GB of VRAM is nice, cooler design is very effective, noise is kept at a pretty low level even at high RPM, included back plate is gorgeous.

Cons: The noise could be too much for some people when the fans are at high speeds, SLI connection point is not mounted high enough so the connector is sorta jammed up by the cooler though it works fine, running two of these cards means a lot of heat so be prepared to have good ventilation, 3GB of RAM isn't future proof but it's very good for now.

Other Thoughts: Since I am running 2560 for games I thought I'd use a single 780, but I found that dual 780's is the best way to do this. Current configuration has my top GPU at 80C and bottom around 70C at full load. I could ramp up the fan speeds but I haven't felt it to be necessary, as I don't plan to overclock them further until the performance is not sufficient. I absolutely love the aesthetic of the cards and they match my system very well. I can imagine that running these under water blocks and OC'd even further would be outstanding, but in their stock configuration they are excellent cards for an enthusiast gamer.

My bottom line: If you're looking for a budget card this is probably not for you. The 900 series is tempting for sure, but given their demand and price vs. actual performance gain it may not be worth it, especially if you're not planning on running 4K. If you want 2560 then this is the perfect choice.

1 out of 5 eggsArrived DOA

Pros: Well packaged and arrived within a week.

Cons: Arrived DOA

Other Thoughts: Plugged it in, green lights turned on but no video. Swapped with another GPU I had and that one worked. Put in a ticket for an RMA and waiting to send it back as soon as I hear back from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsNo sli needed !!!

Pros: absolutely the most silent card I have ever owned.. the overclocking capabilities are awesome.. run every game at max settings and not even a little hiccup. Originally bought 2 of these for sli but there was no need!

Cons: haha! not possible with this card

Other Thoughts: this card is mated up with an asus z97 sabertooth, I7 4790k, 32gig of memory, and Samsung 840 evo 1tb. windows scored this setup an 8.8 and I haven't overclocked anything yet. :)

5 out of 5 eggsThis card rocks.

Pros: This thing is a real power house. After I had it installed I loaded up every great looking PC game I could think of and maxed out all the settings super ultra duper high and it runs like a dream. In my attempt to get it to stutter I threw in the best looking graphics mods I could find for Skyrim, GTA4, the Crysis games, and Far Cry 3. Still, never went below 60FPS. I know I could have spent three times as much on a card but so far I don't see a need to. This card is amazing.

Cons: It's huge. Like... Massive. Seriously, I had to pull disconnect and pull out almost off my the cords in my case just to get it in there, then had to rewire everything. This was only a problem for me because it took a little bit longer before I could start playing.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Impressed

Pros: - Well made, has a huge metal heat sink.
- Does run cool and quiet.
- Runs most games I have on maxed out graphics settings at or near 60 fps (often higher).

I wasn't sure what amount of power I had to connect for the card to run. Fortunately there are lights next to the power connectors which turned from red to green to indicate sufficient power. Very intuitive. One of the power cables comes with the card (the 8 pin I think) and fortunately I had the other already. Once both the 8 pin and the 6 pin adapters were plugged in, the card was good to go.

I didn't realize the visuals I was missing out on in gaming. With this card, I'm seeing the subtle texture details, Dx11 tesselation, glow effects, shaders, shadows, lighting, color and high AA that make the games look absolutely gorgeous.

For the $300 price range I am absolutely satisified with this piece of hardware.

Cons: Wasn't crazy about the "free" game being charged but "discounted" out of the ammount for the graphics card. IMO, keep the game and lower the price of the card...

Other Thoughts: - This thing is nearly 12 inches long and 6 wide (11.3" x 5.8") and it is heavy.
- The Nvidia software will offer to detect games and adjust the graphics settings, essentially creating a graphics profile for that game without having to launch the game. (not all games are supported)
- The software does provide overclocking options along with temperature and voltage monitoring applications
