Lets wait for third party cooler .... but power consumption is an issue to me. Electricity bill will see a 20% increase between 2014 and 2016 in France. Brute force is not the way to go.
It's not that I'm the targeted audiance, can't justify spending 400+ in a gpu now (I did it before, when I wa younger :D).

Tempted to try one of these out in the future, only with a decent cooler though. My 780 is already somewhat faster than a Titan so it would be an interesting match up.
