EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 - Back to top
"The ACX 2.0 FANTASTIC cooler, it works really really well, temperatures never exceeded 67c while overclocked sitting in a room that is about 80F, so it was pretty impressive with keep temperatures nice and low...."
"If you’ve been looking for a GTX 980 with top notch performance, a terrific cooling solution, and a stout factory applied overclock, then the EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 may very well be what you’ve been waiting on. Without question… Overclockers approved!"
"It's a freakin' GTX980, its fast already, so they've made it even faster. The ACX Cooler 2.0 plenty of fins, and heatpipes touching directly on the core, and what makes it special, they just went through and tweaked it a bit and made it a little better all around....."
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Hydro Copper - Back to top
"The cooling performance of the block coupled with our 360mm+ radiator setup produced incredibly low temperatures on the GPU - 42C under a sustained gaming load. Though I can't prove it quite yet, I think it's more than fair to say there is a TON of headroom left in GM204 and we should be seeing much higher clock speeds with some additional voltage flexibility. (And if KingPin's results are in any way an indication, we should see a LOT of clock headroom.)"
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified ACX 2.0 - Back to top
"A fully-custom PCB, myopic focus on stable power delivery and high-quality cooling combine to make the Classified one of the very fastest single-GPU cards on the market. Primed to be overclocked further via BIOS and voltage manipulation, we fully expect enthusiasts to achieve 1,600MHz-plus core speeds on air... with the promise of more on water or more esoteric cooling."

"What really impressed us was the level of overclocking performance we got from simply adjusting clock frequencies using EVGA PrecisionX.”"
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Superclocked ACX 2.0 - Back to top
"Overclocking our sample worked extremely well, reaching the highest clocks in our GTX 970 test group. Memory topped out at beyond 2 GHz, in part due to the card's well-overclocking Samsung chips. EVGA's heatsink does not cool the memory chips with the baseplate, but uses the fans' airflow instead, an approach that works quite well."
"With the ACX/ACX 2.0, EVGA designed a special heatsink with a lot of dissipation surfaces. To maximize dissipation volume, EVGA used a few tricks, such as tall fins at the sides of the cooler. The heatsink was designed in such a way to minimize airflow turbulence between the fans, with clever barriers directing the airflow."
".. I was able to overclock significantly and that is one of the great benefits of the 970, one of the benefits of the Maxwell architecture allows for some pretty insane overclocks....."
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 - Back to top
"Armed with a new ACX 2.0 cooler and clocked to go like the clappers, this is a fine example of how an affordable GTX 970 can be made as quick as a premium GTX 980."
"From performance to acoustics the FTW delivered in a big way despite being one of the fastest sub-$400 cards currently available.... However, for its target market, the GTX 970 FTW is one of the best solutions currently available. "

"...at 1440p the GTX 970 averages just 1% faster than the R9 290X... They have undercut AMD with better hardware at a lower price, leaving AMD in a very tenuous position. AMD would have to cut R9 290X’s price by nearly $200 to be performance competitive, and even then they can’t come close to matching NVIDIA’s big edge in power consumption."
"The EVGA GTX 970 FTW proved to be a great performing card that has many features gaming enthusiasts look for. Low power consumption, excellent cooling from the ACX 2.0, a massive factory applied overclock, and performance that puts it ahead of the AMD R9 290X in most cases all add up to the GTX 970 FTW being a serious contender for your next graphics card purchase."

"...we managed to squeeze an additional 130MHz out of the already overclocked card, which is very impressive... EVGA has done an outstanding job..."
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Dual Classified ACX - Back to top
"EVGA's latest GTX 780 Ti Classified comes with the highest out of the box performance we've ever seen from a single GPU graphics card."
"The higher-than-normal voltage enabled us to overclock the core to the highest we've yet seen on a GTX 780 Ti…"
"This brings us to EVGA, which we feel is the overall winner here. It didn't suffer any performance anomalies, the card runs quiet, and it comes with several amenities, such as a second BIOS to tinker with and EVGA's Step-Up program."

"In the end, we have a powerhouse of a video card in the EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified. The card simply plowed through every benchmark we threw at it and did so with impressive results.”"
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition - Back to top
"Our benchmarks show that the KP Card is clearly the fastest GTX 780 Ti you can buy and anyone buying this card because it is the best of the best or looking for a centerpiece in their build will not be disappointed."
Linus Tech Tips
"Honestly. I'm really impressed with this graphics card. EVGA has come so far from being a "rebrander of reference cards" company to one with some serious engineering teeth."

"EVGA makes a good product. The cooling on it is fantastic."
EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Dual FTW w/ EVGA ACX Cooler - Back to top
"...our review sample was able to hit some of the highest clocks we have seen from a GTX 760 and took our Fire Strike score to over 6100 points in the latest 3DMark."
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti FTW w/ EVGA ACX Cooler - Back to top
"From impressive overclocking to the great performing ACX cooler, everything worked terrific right out of the box. The improvements the Maxwell GPU bring are impressive, especially on the performance per watt front."
"Over clocking the EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti FTW card was easy and there was a lot of head room. Using PrecisionX I was able to get stable over clocks of as high as +115MHz with only a small tweak (12Mv) to the voltage."
"The GTX 750 Ti FTW ACX is the best-performing card in its stable and beats the reference model by 10 per cent, rising to 20 per cent when overclocked further. Great looks and excellent cooling...""
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked - Back to top
"We really like the fact that EVGA included a DisplayPort 1.2 connector on the card for G-Sync and the GPU cooler was more than enough to keep this card super cool and pretty damn quiet."
"Overall there is nothing to dislike and everything to like when it comes to the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 SC. It is affordable, has solid performance, consumes very little power and the memory can be overclocked substantially, reducing the negative impact of the 128-bit bus."
