Is the gtx 770 Poseidon and gtx 780 poseidon cooler interchangeable?

I have a gtx 770 poseidon and I want to put the cooler of it on a asus gtx 780 directcu ii pcb.

(the PCB of the gtx 780 poseidon and the asus gtx 780 directcu ii are the same)

In theory you could. But it would be janky AF and might not last for long. Also the temps on the 780 will be higher since the 770 cooler is smaller.

Please mention or quote me if you want a response. :)

Oh I thought that the gtx 770 poseidon would have the same size as the 780 poseidon.

They are physically different GPU cores, one has substantially higher shader count and the VRMs are different on the 780. It's a bigger card too. There's a 30% difference in performance between a 780 and 770 anyway... that alone warrants checking everything.

 

Just go find an aftermarket cooler for the 780. They aren't THAT expensive.

okay.

but can I put it on a asus gtx 770 directcu ii 4gb pcb atleast? It would be a nice upgrade from 2gb to 4gb vram

I wouldn't trust that without some serious visual checking first. They might have similar layouts, but I wouldn't rest my laurels on that thought without some serious proof. The wrong coverage means a potentially dead card in the future.

Wait... why buy a 780 AND a 770 instead of a 1050 Ti and annihilate them both?
