Well here we go again. Card modding could be next big thing if you can turn 1 into a pizza oven, or perhaps a deep fryer.

Hope it works out 4 them, but price will be astronomical!

The GTX 590 fail at overclocking because it's PCB blows. With some upgrades to the PCB this could run a little cooler and work out pretty well.

Out of curiosity, how exactly does a PCB affect overclockability?

I think it was the components on the original pcb being cheap and not being able to handle the higher voltages for OC. Correct me if i'm wrong

Components on the PCB are not the same as the actual PCB itself. You can have different manufacturers using the same PCB, but with one putting slightly higher quality (which means more expensive) parts on said PCB.

i think most people include the components on the PCB when they say PCB

Yeah that's what I did, it's just easier than talking about all the transistors and crap I don't even know about. I'm a geologist not an electrician lol
