Each of the three GeForce GTX 770s we’ve tested today is special in one way or another. Any of them is going to be a better choice than the reference card or the earlier-tested versions from Palit and Zotac. We’ll sum up their highs and lows below.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked ACX features a beautiful cooler, which is efficient and quieter than on the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX. Still, we hope that the developer will work to reduce its noise even more. The card is also compact and comes with nice accessories. It is pre-overclocked, although not too much (EVGA has the Classified Hydro Copper version for high clock rates).
The Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 770 HerculeZ X3 Ultra features the best cooler. Its cooler is superior to any other in terms of both performance and noisiness. Moreover, this card has the highest default clock rates among all the tested products. However, its cooler has a triple-slot design and its accessories aren’t numerous.
The MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning is perfect for any overclocking. It features high-quality components, a GPU Reactor module, dual BIOS, monitoring and volt-modding capabilities. None of the other five GeForce GTX 770s we’ve tested offers such extras. The Twin Frozr IV cooler with dust removal technology is very efficient. The product is more expensive than the others but it is clear what you are asked to pay for. We guess there is no better GeForce GTX 770 available if you are into overclocking.
Still, our tests are not finished as we hope to test some more GeForce GTX 770s in the near future.
