Asus 780 DC2OC or EVGA 780 Classified ?

so i'm building a new rig for my friend

 

Cooler Master Scout 2 Black

Corsair RM850 ( i'm gonna do something about that yellow RM to fit the color scheme <_<  )

Asus Maximus VI Hero

i7-4770k + H100i

16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum

Samsung 840 Pro 250GB

some Corsair AF + SP and some Noctua NF-F12 +  NF-A14 FLX ( i'm going for good positive airflow )

 

and i can't deiced between these tow since there is only 20$ difference

i'm leaning more towards the Asus version since it's recommended left right and center and it fits the color scheme + the back plate

  

1- which one of these cards can fit in and still can close the side panel ?

2- which one of these tow runs cooler and quieter ?

3- which one overclocks better ?

4- for the future .. which one of these tow scale better in SLI ?

 

 

let me know what you think guys

thanks in advance :)

The classified edition is bigger but it runs faster but as for everything else the Direct cu II takes the cake

As far as I know the Classified runs hella fast when overclocked although it's not as quiet and does not have a backplate

The classfield is faster but i would of picked DCUİİ for the looks (BACKPLATE 0.0)

He is the hero this forum deserves but not the one it needs right now.So we'll hunt him because he can take it because he is not our hero he is a silent guardian

DUCII still runs fast and their both 780s so you wont see more of a difference between +/- 5 frames.

 

Also if I do recall DCUII overclocks really well.

yes it dose and runs cooler if not the cooler 780 on the market

 

 

Go for the DCUII cooler.  They are beast overclockers, super quiet, and super cool.  The backplate is beautiful!

 

and pairing it up with the Hero motherboard is pure sexiness

Maybe you could get the 860i or 760i in your budget. Those are red and if you get 860i you can do sli in the future :)
