Why all the (delta-T) nonsense? It's all but meaningless without a reference temperature.I'm happy with my EVGA GTX 980 ACX 2.0. However I quickly modified the VRAM heatsink and attached my Kraken G10 (Kraken x60 combo), couldn't be happier. My load was hitting near 45C (delta-T).
I don't care what type of heat sink they put on these things, they're still loud and dissipate heat like crap. With my G10, my 980 idles at 3C (delta-T) and running Furmark for an hour caps out at 24C (delta-T).
What I want to see is manufacturers start to include some decent cooling options. I think there is one card out there that has built in liquid cooling but I would like to see some more out of the box.
Meh, not impressed. If Asus really wants to innovate with the GTX980, then they need to increase the memory bus bandwidth from 256-bit to either 384-bit or better yet a 512-bit bus (yes, just like what AMD has now with Hawaii). Until that happens, I'll keep yawning
