Fastest GTX 780 Ti @ Time of Review 12/25/2013
Fast! This specific card is consistently clocked @ 1162 MHz under load. (Must be Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0 as this card has a max. boost clock of 1085 MHz, ran Furmark for 3 hours). If you look at an Nvidia Reference GTX 780 Ti, its clocked at 875 MHz base clock, so this card overclocked itself about 33% above reference base clock. Card looks good, wish it had a backplate but that's reserved for the higher end version of this card. It has 2x8 pin power connectors so you know this card has more than enough power to boost the GPU's clock speed (Either with GPU Boost or Manual OC). Overall very satisfied with this card.
The fan assembly/frame was bent on arrival. I bent it back slightly during installation to get the screw holes to line up on the case PCI bracket. One or more of the fans also made a very loud ticking noise on arrival. Running furmark for the three hours, the ticking's still there but tolerable. I may RMA it but I can't stand being without a PC for one day, let alone a couple of weeks. Definitely going to register it with Gigabyte in case one of them fails.
Running Furmark, this card gets between 78-80 degrees C at max load (Xtreme Burn-In Test Performed for 3 hours.) At the clock it was running at, those temps are quite normal. ASIC quality according to GPU-Z is 74.1% (Not the best I've had). GPU Temp. @ idle is 39 degrees C. Rated it @ 4 stars since I liked the performance/design but lacked quality control.
