Hey guys I have been coming to toms hardware for information for a long time now thank you all for everything! I am about to purchase a SLI Galaxy 78XNH5DV8PXV GeForce GTX 780 HOF 3GB to pair with my EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2783-KR for SLI. All the info I have read suggested it should be fine even though they come with different clock speeds out of box and are of course are different brands. My question is will these pair flawlessly(whatever that might mean for SLI these days) as opposed to getting another 03G-P4-2783? I don't want to regret not getting an identical model later but I am getting a good deal on this Galaxy and it sounds like a great card from everything I have read. If I am taking any risks by trying to pair these as opposed to completely identical models please let me know. I am aware that the higher speed card will drop to the lower cards level and thats sounds fine since even the "lower" card is a monster and easy to overclock. Thanks in advance!

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jf64Bm - My build right now more or less. EVGA 780 with Galaxy 780 would be the SLI like the post says. PCpartpicker wouldnt let me pick different cards for sli

Should be as fine as pairing any two gtx780, and as you said they will clock the same. But go ahead and buy the HOF. :) 
Only people like me with some kind og gpu OCD doesn't want two different gpus because of the different looks xP

i would research it but the galaxy hof's had catching fire issues and were pulled from shelves so its near impossible to find them brand new. they are a great card but fire.... im not cool with that. i would stay away or see what the total warranty is and what else they will cover if the card burns down your entire home, let alone your rig.

My one other concern right now is my PSU and the fact that I will be on air with just stock case fans right now. They do seem to be doing a great job right now though with mild overclocking on the cpu and gpu. I would be open to water cooling and higher overclock later but only if I feel like I need it. Here is my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jf64Bm A couple parts arent exact but close enough. I am in the process of choosing a monitor(impossible) i dont actually have the asus monitor in that build. probably waiting for asus rog swift. PCPartpicker says my hive 750 watt should handle my build giving me estimated wattage of 729w. Thats at full load right? Which basically never happens? Will my 750w be able to do the job? I know if it says 750w bronze that means it will only actually be able to push 80% or so of that? I'm open to a new PSU if need be but if this works fine ill be happy. I am probably going to leave both gpus at stock clocks and just have my cpu overclocked. Nothing crazy on the overclock. Thanks again.

The guy I'm buying from is gonna show me that its working fine so I guess no fire yet! lol I had not seen that but I did think it was odd that a card like this isn't being made anymore. I am a bit of gambler so meh!

like i said, research it. maybe it was certain revisions of the card. its is a good card with a binned chip and is capable of high over clocks. it is generally only surpassed by the msi lightning and evga classified as far as overclocking goes.

Im pretty confident in the card holding up fine at stock speeds my main concern right now is compatability betwern the two cards (any unique problems as opposed to identical cards or even brands). Thanks

no, no problems at all…. you can sli with any gk110 chip with the same core count.
