    STRIX-GTX780-OC-6GD5

    Editor's Choice - Must Have

    We absolutely love what ASUS has done with the new STRIX series. The ASUS GTX780 6GB STRIX OC video card is an awesome start to it and we can't wait to see what other models fall under it down the track.

    R9290-DC2OC-4GD5

    PC & Tech Authority Recommended

    We think the $40 premium for the ASUS DirectCU II OC 290 is worth it for the superior cooling and engineering, as well as potential for future overclocking. The same goes for the 290x, with the DirectCU II version carrying about the same permium.

    The ASUS Poseidon is suitable for quiet system as much as it will appeal to serious overclockers.

It's a unique solution and will probably see a limited producton run, however it's great to see such options in the market, especailly with the surge in popularity of AIO water cooling systems, which makes this easier still.
