At the rear of the card we see a very large PCB. What baffles me though is that EVGA does not equip the card with a back plate, you need to optionally purchase it for 20 USD. That is not what I expect for a top / flagship / leading SKU. Especially while you just transferred 700 bucks into EVGA's account. In EVGA's defense, there is a reinforcement base-plate located at the front-side underneath the cooler though. Overall a very clean looking PCB, undoubtedly, the custom PCB is a completely altered from the reference design GTX 780.
Now most cards in this class these days allow for DMM voltage metering, this is not standard for the Classy. There is a connector for voltage readout, but again you need to purchase some sort of add-on to be ably to use it.
In order to optimize airflow through the fins, reduce fan turbulence, and reduce noise; EVGA has used what they call a Dual Cooling Subsystem design in the ACX cooler.
To the left 5 LEDs, then the voltage monitor connector, then the dual-bios and to the far right the EVBOT connector. The card comes with a dual BIOS. One stores a normal reference BIOS, another factory BIOS with a slightly increased power target (115% over 110%).
