Overclocking

The benefits that come from having such an effective cooler go beyond the obvious noise and temperature effects. Because of the way that the nVidia GPU Boost 2.0 technology works, the greater the thermal headroom you have then the faster your card will go. In stock trim we saw the card boost up to 1430MHz, but it's with the manual overclock where things really take off, reaching a barely believable 1500MHz. How do you like them apples.

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.Quote

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.Quote

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 Quote

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

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