Where did the "under the heatsink" section has gone lately? Always enjoyed seeing the cards disassembled in detail.

Several of these manufacturers now use HIGHLY sticky thermal compound which makes it nearly impossible to remove the heatsink from the core. I've actually pulled a GPU core straight off the PCB of a Gigabyte card!

Would love to see how the non top card stacks up... is it the same (other than the binned core) whats the overclocking like in comparison (and hence value too)


P.S you have it as a 680 in the power chart..
