I was wondering if they are currently shipping out a new design or if something went wrong with my order. I ordered the EVGA GTX760 SC ACX 2gb and based on gpu-z, it is indeed the GTX760 SC ACX 2gb. After looking at pictures though, I found its using the same cooler as the FTW 4gb version, the heatsinks are vertical instead of horizontal and the shround only goes halfway down. Any information would help, thanks guys.

Not a mistake, ACX is evga cooling solution for its SC cards.
EVGA ACX Cooler
With a 40% increase in heatsink volume, the EVGA ACX is more efficient at dissipating heat, allowing for 15% lower GPU temperatures. A reinforcement baseplate maintains a straight PCB, and helps lower mosfet temperatures by 7% and memory by 15%. Even the fan blades are of the highest quality: with a 700% increase in strength, and 25% lower weight when compared to competitors. This makes the fans 20% more efficient by requiring lower power levels. EVGA is also using double ball bearing fans which offer a 12 year lifespan, four times longer when compared to competitors!

The ACX cooler is used on the 760, 770 and 780. Did you get the reference cooler instead of the ACX? I don't exactly understand your problem.

Sorry, I'm horrible at explaining things. The 760 SC 2gb with ACX Cooler has a shroud that goes from top of fans to the pcb. The 760 FTW 4gb with ACX Cooler has a different shroud that only goes halfway from fans to pcb board exposing the fins of the cooler, similar to the ones of the 770 and 780. My 760 SC 2gb came with the same cooler as the 760 FTW. Oh and my concern is if this was a mess up or if they are starting to ship them like this instead of the old design.

I See, There if was a change during the production run, You have the revision.
Bottom line does it work/cool perfectly?
I would contact EVGA themselves and double check, ask for a 4GB without the cooler...haha
