EVGA GTX 770 Non-SC(Model 2773) VS EVGA GTX 770 SC(Model 2774)

Thank you for reading this question.

I am planning to buy EVGA GTX 770 graphic card with ACX cooler.

As you may know, EVGA makes many versions of GTX 770s, and I am interested in

two models among them: EVGA GTX 770 ACX SC(1.11 factory overclock) and

EVGA GTX 770 ACX(1.05 base clock, which will be the reference setting).

And I am curious on a few points of difference between them, so I can choose which one to buy.

1. Is their any major difference between them except the base clock speed?
(etc. the components used such as fans, vrms, heatsinks...)

2. The price differs about $10. Is it worth buying the SC version at this price difference?
(I do overclock gpus. But I am not a extreme overclocker who push things to their limits.)

3. Is their any merits to the Non-SC version? Such as noise level, temperature, and power
(I am sure power consumption and temp will go down, but not sure about the noise level.)

Again, ty for reading this, and I await for your advice.

  1. Best answer
    1. No
    2. IMHO no
    3. the power consumption, heat, and noise would most likly be lower but not by much.
    If you are overclocking(even if you are not an extreme overclocker) then you may want to look at a different brand. EVGA's non classified versions of the 770 use reference VRMS which are fine for stock and small overclocks, but of you want a higher clock than the SC then you may want to go with the classified version(if you want to stick with EVGA) or a Gigabyte, MSI or Asus card as they use better VRMS.
  2. The classified cards from evga are intense. Some of the best on the market IMHO. I am still rocking a classified gtx560ti and its running bf4 on ultra silky smooth.

    Clocked at 925mhz and 2200mhz where as the stock clocks were 797mhz and 1950mhz. Card runs around 65 degrees on full load and its just a champ of a card. Very impressed with it even to this day.
