My System Specs

Default

Solid review Sky. At a $10 price bump over a reference card it's hard to imagine that anyone would pick up the reference card over this (barring people who want to water cool the GPUs of course). In all the reviews I'm seeing, it definitely seems like the overclocks are really getting killed by the limits the software puts on users. I'm curious if there'd be much more headroom to overclock on these cards if third-party overclocking softwares and firmwares came out and let you push past the current software limits, or if there's a hardware reason/limit that wouldn't let people push the voltages and clocks much higher anyway.
