As I said above another 780 would be a good choice or getting a single 780 Ti is also good but getting the Kingpin edition if your not a competitive overclocker i.e cash prizes and sponsorship then no offense but it's an idiotic purchase.

It's not idiotic purchase, it's almost 130MHz over GTX780Ti...
I don't want only EVGA sticker and ACX Cooler only or any other company.
It's better custom PCB. I think price will not be so much over GTX780Ti Classified.
Something more because 50MHz bigger clock and improvement on PCB.
But it would be nice to to play with voltage... Did you saw GTX780Ti voltage slider... Hahaha that's joking, and ordinary gamer want at least 0.100-0.150V increase...If you stuck on some clock and card can more but need more voltage it's not enough to stabilize 20-30MHz more.
How much 0.025-0.037V I think. OK I will not drain card as people with water cooling loops, but this is joking... I used on 0.150V on stock Radeons. That's nothing for chip.
Now NVIDIA GK110 can only 1/4 of that.

You know how much an extra 50 MHZ gets you in games ? Next to nothing.
Even Kingpin himself said this card is designed for serious overclockers i.e LN2, If your just doing a bit of overclocking you would be better suited to spend your money elsewhere like on a 780 Ti classy or even a standard 780 Ti.
If you want to waste your money then go ahead.

OK, I love my cards to came with high clocks, if I buy GIGABYTE or MSI model I will pay 50-60e less, example GIGABYTE GHz Edition. You read better than I what will be if I decide after one year to OC.
For this card is not confirmed yet and if someone is interested can go on EVGA site to read about news but looks like EVGA will allow hard mode to overpass voltage limit. I would rather pay someone so brave to give warranty on such cards than someone who don't give you to change grace as GIGABYTE, ASUS, MSI...
50-60e will melt during next months and for one year such difference will be as nothing. I had GIGABYTE HD5870 they didn't allow me to change paste inside, I play on 90C later cooler was broken, before few months I sell card to guy who had turbine for that model. He replace paste and fix cooler because I couldn't do that under warranty and now he play on 75-76C. I didn't saw such temps more than year and I could do that but GIGABYTE say No warranty if you remove screws. I can remove them without damage. But they probably send card on forensic expertise before allow RMA.
SLI is excellent option but it's still not perfect.
AMD and NVIDIA need to work lot on dual GPU configuration for gaming.

I completely understand your point from a performance perspective for normal and even mild overclocking users their is nothing to be gained by going for a Kingpin over a Classified. But do you think financially it might be a sensible decision, seeing as its a very limited production run and they are hard to get hold of and at the same time their intended destiny is to be pushed until they border on death, if they perform well might they actually become more desirable in a few months time when their all sold out and half of then have been binned and therefore hold their value like a boss?

Kingpin cards are purely for benchmarking and slapping an OC under Ln2.

If you are buying this for games, I strongly suggest checking comments from Kingpin himself before squandering your money. There is not enough gain over other Ti cards to make the purchase worth it.

Please do some research on the card or you may find yourself to be utterly disappointed. I think 780ti classy, or MSI's Gaming/Lightning may be better (is lightning even available yet?)

edit* I'm not trying to be offensive to you in case that's how I may have come across. I'm just saying, before you dump a large amount of money on the Kingpin cards, make sure you know the background of that card and its primary purpose.

They could be a collectors type item but it's impossible to say really as these things phase out quickly.

I love unusual hardware as EVGA GTX580 Classified ULTRA.
I will never forgive myself because I bought GTX580 DirectCUII instead Classified ULTRA. Such hardware is not for selling. Such hardware is for personal collection because that's best from one generation, best Fermi, best Kepler, and one good mouse price over some other model is acceptable...




It's really excellent and colors fit with my motherboard, sound card,...

If you want an excellent OCing card go for the MSi lightning series . The Kingpin one is for benchmarking, not gaming as such. As Dicehunter said, its a waste of money otherwise.


I vote 780ti as less driver headaches. I'd say don't go for EVGA as well but as you said you want an evga card then I won't bother suggesting another :P.
