Hi, anyone have experience using the ASUS ROG MARS 760 DUAL GPU ...?

Until now had a breakdown GTX 770 but I'm using a GTX 660Ti and the truth is that it works well, reasonable and very fresh Watts few times.

I guess the performance will be like a 760 single but with the advantage of running two tasks.

For some time now I have been working with a GTX 590 and have experience in using dual cards, their advantages and disadvantages.

Thanks and regards.

I had one of these briefly as a 'cheap' dual card - I found it hot and noisy and returned it.
I'm not sure how you feel about temperature & noise, but it didn't work for me in my setup.

Hello: I have correctly installed the ASUS MARS II 760 and the performance was pleasantly surprised.

In several projects it exceeds 10% improvement on a GTX 660Ti GPUGRID of time and the set tasks short performance equivalent to that achieved with a GTX 980 or GTX 780Ti but for less than half the price ... well.

Temperature control and OC Linux works perfectly and thanks to having two independent fans is pretty cool and acceptable noise, no more than other GPUs. above.

In summary very happy moment and a very good price benefits. Greetings.

I was considering this card but was able to get enough money to buy a 980.

How hot does it get? Also can you run long WU's on it? I was hoping to know how long a dual 760 would take? If not. that is fine. They are cheap cards, probably worth it.

Hello: For long tasks better the GTX 980 or GTX 780Ti.

The MARS 760 is good for short tasks in GPUGRID and SETI or other project as EINSTEIN etc ... is perfect, the best price-performance.

With fans at 75% (noise a little high but exaggerated) the temperature is maintained at 73 ° C over and 75 other GPU, (ambient to 21 ° C) is normal for a warm more, is the one on the inside, but much also depends on the case and ventilation, in my case is very well ventilated.

I hope this information is helpful.
