I dubt that fix it. (at least not from you, lol)
I believe he wanted the card and for a good reasons - 1.32GHz and 7.4GHz clocks are awesome. And on top of that it looks like the card utilize Nichicon FP L8 caps, witch are very very good caps. Not best, but second best.

Honestly, every single other card pales in comparison to that 780 Classy.

Thread cleaned.

FYI: regardless of what I sell on these forums, all monies go to the H&S foundation.

^^PM sent.

This card is definitely one with the samsung ram. All kinds of peeps up in arms at EVGA as no one with the elpida ram is getting close to those clocks. Bait and switch. Beware hero1. From the other reviews online it seems the MSI lightning is the one to get. Will wait for Sky's reveiw.

Only if MSI releases their special overclocking bios that is rumoured to exist...The thing that makes this card special is the partially unlocked voltage control, as I understand it.

Not just that.. but that in particular. Would love to see it on the DCII reviewed last week.
