We have a sample on the way. So we'll see. If the lights go out on the island of Montreal, you'll know why....

Personally...and I am just spit balling here .....I'd be more worried about a certain reviewer going "missing"...along with that BEAST...than the lights just going out. :)~

Where does he live again AkG? I was thinking we should pay him a Visit.
After all, he might need help 'lifting it'

Oh, we don't have to worry about Sky disappearing with an AMD card. After all, he's far too biased toward AMD to consider running an AMD card in his own rig...

The thing with SKYMTL is if you reach a certain level of bias you can no longer use what you were biased toward. I do not know the math behind it. All I know is that when you get really biased, you do this flip and can no longer use whatever it was. So in SKY's case, he likes nvidia too much and thus cannot use an nvidia card again until his bias subsides to more normal/sane levels.

Well jealous of sky right now... Looking forward to a good line-up of 7990, 690, dual 680's 670's, 7970's and 7950's.. and if time.. maybe even 660's and 7870's..

Would be amazing to get dual 690's and 7990's but thats unlikely I know.. :(
