1. It has an integrated water-block. Which I can take full advantage of because I can rebuild my custom loop to accommodate it. By comparison the only other GTX 780 I can get with a factory W/C solution is the EVGA Hydro-copper. That typically runs for $100 more.
2. It has the custom VRM section that should help me succeed if I decide that I really need to overclock it. And otherwise should provide greater durability.
3. Despite what your Reviewer said... It costs less than a custom block solution. Those typically cost $130 - $180. An then you have to mount them very carefully. Plus, to my understanding, only EVGA doesn't void your warranty if you apply such a solution. And the best price I can find on the EVGA GTX 780 is $520. So the best I could do that way would cost me ~$650.
I also have to take the Review into exception on another point. Running all tests on a display that costs more than most will spend on their entire system is just silly. Especially when the vast majority of "Enthusiasts" are running at 1920x1080, and only a small proportion are running at 2650x1400. It just makes the review irrelevant to do so. And that is a disservice to your readers.
