My System Specs

Default

I just ordered two EVGA 680 GTX Superclocked cards. They have some kind of a plate on them for better cooling. At last I think that's what they're for. Can anyone tell me how much better,or faster the Superclocked cards are compared to the 680 stock? Does the plate on the card really do anything for heat? I ordered that model,simply because of the word "Superclocked". I hope I didn't waste an extra $50 on that word. Thanks all.

Thanks my friend. I spotted that review about 30 seconds after I posted. Very good and informative review from SKYMTL.
