You want to overclock as much as possible? Sapphire R290x.

*trollface*

But it's preference really, is it not? I'd wait for the 780Ti Lightning at this point. Or get a 780Ti Windforce. Any particular reason you are so keen on ASUS or EVGA?

The 780 Ti lightning is not getting released, MSI only made 12 and handed them out to top benchmarkers, Sounds odd I know but it's because of a dispute with Nvidia.

The shallowest reason possible... i want them to match my rig color scheme and i'm planning a red/black color scheme... and idk... i don't really like the gigabyte cooler... looks are important too for me... but i wanted to know which of those 2 is better...

Then I'd recommend the MSI 780Ti Twin Frozr. Black/Red, and it's a beast. Not a shallow reason at all, building for aesthetics is important Hope you are gonna get the black/red NZXT H440

Going for a 750D ... i considered the H440 but i love the Obsidian Series look... Twin Frozr is better than those other 2?? ... i thought the classifieds were as good as it gets with 780 TIs

i think it has to do mostly with the yellow accents and the "Lighting" text lights... also that bit bulky thing in the back isn't so pretty either hahah

For overclocking the EVGA Classified is better.
