This is a double-edged thing. When we first tested the Titan's overclocking ability we used the latest beta of the always good MSI Afterburner. All of today's overclocking results were based upon that overclock. However, and it's a big however, we weren't happy with our initial findings and further testing has made it clear that Afterburner isn't quite up to scratch.

Moving on to EVGA Precision we finally saw the overclocks we were hoping for and got the results that we expected. As you can see the Gainward ended up at nearly 300MHz faster than stock. So the results in this review are using Afterburner, and we'll be revisiting the overclocking results in a follow up review next week.

With the GPU Boost 2.0 the card always hits the stops, so pure temperature isn't so important. What is the most jaw-dropping part is that the card is near silent. We don't mean near silent if you're using headphones, or playing Far Cry 3. We mean silent in the "is it still working" way.

Nice read, nice card, poor price! The future looks promising for future gpus though.Quote

great card, but the price when looking at 3x7870 or 2x7970 and new ssd, even a pretty good system for that price is the put offQuote

Just a quick question. with the 3D Mark graph is that the combined results or gpu results?Quote

I know it would be unbalanced in terms of CPU/GPU , but if you aren't interested in benchmarking a 3770k with a h100i and this in a betfenix prodigy is perhaps the ultimate single screen gaming rig , small, cool , quiet.

For me thats probably the perfect system.Quote
