My System Specs


Nice review. I've always liked the work that ASUS puts into their power delivery systems. With ASUS, you're not just getting a fancy heatsink, you're getting a whole slew of items to help you squeeze performance out of your card.

I wonder though, how this compares in performance to the MSI Lightning? It runs a little hotter and a little cooler, does it perform a little better, too? I'd compare with your review of the lightning, but I think that was pre 12.11 drivers, so there's no point.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
