The GTX780 is already clocked faster than the GTX Titan, and with the extra cooling performance of the Windforce we're able to push the card further still. Merely adding 5% to the power, which is more of a stability option than anything, we gain 75MHz on the GK110 GPU Core, and a whopping 250MHz (1GHz effective) on the GDDR5.
Given how close the scores between the stock GTX780 and stock GTX Titan were, we think this should be enough to put the Gigabyte GTX780 Windforce to the top of the single GPU
Two things to note. Firstly with our overclock we increased the fan speed to ensure that the card remained cool and stable throughout our testing, which is why there is a couple of degrees reduction in the temperature. Secondly when compared to the reference cooler the Windforce is far superior at keeping the GK110 frosty.
