I have my system in a chilled closet from outside air being pumped in through a ceiling register with a 8" diameter insulated duct hose running to a 10" reversible fan via a 10" to 8" reducer in my attic pulling air from outside and it is currently 25f out so it is around 32f in the closet. The reversible fan will come in handy when the summer comes around and it will pull the hot air out of the closet and pull in nice cool air conditioned air. I also have a super low restriction filter on the ceiling register to keep any dust out.
This is why my temps are so low. Right now the card is Idling at 14c with the fan at 35% but once my temps reach 30c it ramps up to 100% since I can not hear it in the closet.
Also I am using EVGA Precision along with EVGA OC scanner X to load the card. It is awesome loads it just as hard as furmark plus it has 5-6 different tests to load your card. Even one that uses over 3gb of video memory. This is where I got my loaded clockspeeds , temperature from and verified it with GPUZ.
Also I am running 1306 on the core and 8000 mhz on the memory. A plain jane 770 runs at 7000mhz memory speeds. If you have seen the ACX cooler for the EVGA GTX 770 Classified edition you would understand how my temps are so low since my ambient temps is already low. The Classified card is around 1 3/4 inches wider then the PCI slot mounting bracket and the standard EVGA superclocked GTX 770 with the ACX cooler, they made the cooler a lot wider so they could add a extra heatpipe. 6 heat pipes compared to the regular ACX coolers 5 heat pipes. The card is a piece of art with amazing cooling and it only takes up 2 slots its just huge and really wide. It also takes 2 8 pin power connectors and has 3 BIOs roms on board with a 3 way switch, normal, OC and LN2. I can flash the board with a ROM of my choice without worrying about bricking my card. The LN2 switch position is the one I will experiment with custom ROMs with....but I have yet to mess with it.
