EVGA GeForce GTX 760 FTW! Graphics Card

GTX 760 FTW box GTX 760 FTW bundle

EVGA stick with familiar design on their box and highlight the fact that this is an overclocked card with 4GB of memory. Inside they bundle some documentation, a software CD, case badge, poster and power cable wrapped in a high quality bag. Also available through various retailers is a free copy of Assassins Creed 4.

GTX 760 FTW cooler GTX 760 FTW base

EVGA go with a dual slot, two fan cooler which they call ACX. It features aluminium fins, copper heatpipes and fan blades which are strengthened, as well as being lighter, on the double ball bearing fans. There are two SLI connectors on the top edge of the PCB, dust covered like the outputs, and on the back of the PCB is a dual BIOS switch. This is designed to allow us to flash alternate BIOS files and play with overclocking options.
