Card Specifications

 

With four cards in its GTX 960 lineup, the SuperSC AX 2.0+ is the third best of them. We have the awesome ACX 2.0+ cooling, as well as the great overclock over the reference GTX 960 specifications. The "ultimate" card is the GTX 960 FTW ACX 2.0+, which has slightly higher Base and Boost clock speeds.

As you can see, we have 1279/1342MHz for the Base/Boost clocks respectively, while the FTW ACX 2.0+ version of the card cranks it up to 1304/1367MHz for Base/Boost respectively.

The 8-pin PCIe power connector is going to provide the card with more power than its 6-pin competitors, but by how much? We should see a decent performance increase over some of the competing cards, and as we pump out more reviews, we'll see a better picture of which is the best GTX 960 on the market. EVGA definitely has a huge fighting chance with this GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+.

 

 

Cooling Setup

 

EVGA's impressive ACX 2.0+ cooler looks even better in person than it does in the photos, with the company putting in some serious engineering efforts into the ACX 2.0+ design, and performance. The cooler can be broken down into various parts, which all play their various roles in making the ACX 2.0+ perform as well as it does.

As you can see in the image above, EVGA is using double ball bearings, which last for up to 400% longer than sleeve bearing fans that competing cards use. EVGA states that "the oil that is used in Sleeve bearing fans makes them vulnerable and prone to failure after time when the oil dries up".

Then we have the ACX 2.0+ cooler, which uses "over 4X lower power than competitor's allowing for better and more stable overclocks". Overall, EVGA has the best cooling on a GTX 960 we've used to date, with its so-far-very-impressive ACX 2.0+ cooling.
