Review: ACX pushes it over the top

 The ACX cooler is 27cm or just under 11 inches long. The PCB looks a lot like the reference GTX 780 board. EVGA decided to reinforce the baseplate to strengthen the PCB and provide a bit more cooling to the memory chips and MOSFET.

A combination of 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors is necessary to keep the show going. The card uses an OnSemi NCP4206 voltage controller.

The card has 3GB of GDDR5 memory, courtesy of Samsung (model K4G20325F0-FC03 specified to run at 6000 MHz GDDR5 effective). All the memory modules at the front of the PCB are tucked away underneath the reinforcement plate.

The GTX 780 Superclocked ACX features one standard HDMI connector (1.4a compatible), one standard DisplayPort out and two dual-link DVI outs.

The GTX 780 is ready for multi-GPU action, be it in standard two-card SLI, or 3-way and 4-way SLI. Therefore it features two SLI connectors.
