    Default Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition Review

    Today we're looking at a premium gaming card from Gigabyte in the form of the GTX 780 GHz Edition. As you can probably guess, its approach comes in the form of aggressive overclocking, by juicing up the core past 1GHz, one of the fastest on the market. Gigabyte doesn't normally just overclock their products, and indeed this model sports a stunning cooler that we've seen before: the Windforce. We've been impressed in the past with Gigabyte Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It's constructed in metal rather than cheap plastic, comes with three fans, heatpipes, and a boatload of cooling potential in a stylish gaming package. Factor in a very aggressive overclock on this card, and we are eager to see just how fast this thing can go. Let's take a closer look.

    What a freaking nice GPU. beat up on the 290 pretty good and cost less. Love the windforce models design. I am surprised more vendors dont try to copy it.

    Great review Jake! Thanks!

    Great Review Jake! Another Winner from Gigabyte, I have the 760 4GB models with this cooler and its one of the better air cooling cards I have used.
    Even the older 670 with the WF3 Rev 1 Coolers were very good.

    Yeah, I'm still running 2 of the 670's in sli mode. If I ever had the spare cash, I'd almost pick up a third one just for the fun of it. Really like those GPUs.

    Nice review. Do the GHz edition cards run the OEM PCB or do they use a custom one?
