Great review, I got this card 4 days ago, Brilliant piece of kit, Was also able to reach 1500/8000 stable, Quite refreshing coming from the Fury X which didn't overclock so well.

Evga needs to do some more homework, all 980Ti ACX are above 75C or near 80C..Might as well get stock cooler then..


So far Zotac amp Extreme and GB wf3x are the coolest.

If you do a 1:1 fan curve on the classy it rarely goes over 66'c and it's still very quiet which surprised me

The trade off is always usually noise. If a cooler is better it usually needs to make more noise to do so.

In this case it doesn't though, Honestly I can have the cooler run at 60% and it's still incredibly quiet

ACX was designed to be incredibly quiet. That's why they made replacement coolers for the 780, Titan and so on. It was to replace the stock blower

Nice review TTL, is there a massive difference between this and the FTW though?

Yeah an absolutely huge difference.. The bios....

Jokes aside it's usually just as simple as flashing on a slightly higher clocked bios. I did it with my Palit Titan Blacks, et voila, EVGA FTWs
