Hrmmmmm..... I'm liking the look of that heatsink. I know we're supposed to be more concerned with performance over looks, but when all cards perform similarly, an interesting cooler can set it apart. If I were looking to spend some cash on a high end card (not going there as my 680 is more than enough to push 1900X1200 and I don't have a monitor upgrade in my near future... ;) ) this'd look right nice inside the inwin. :)

same i like the aluminum look of these cards.

and your right that in this day and age most of these cards perform the same on average and its silicone lottery on oc performance with not a ton to do with who makes them.

these coolers look great and i think it would look wicked in a White and black case like the phanteks or the h440.

Looks really good.

At the moment, I think it's best to wait for Maxwell. I wonder how these stack up compared to the top brands like the EVGA Kingpin and the MSI Lightning series.

Any idea if this is a custom PCB?

Default I know, I know

As much as I have a great amount of respect for Hardware Canucks and especially SKY and the other reviewers, and as much as this has probably been commented on previously by others, I think posting frame rates for 2.5K monitor and not the most common resolution of 1920X1080 is .....well just not very useful for the majority of us.

Yes I understand that the higher pixel count allows for a more strenuous workout for the higher end cards, but ultimately it comes down to what is most important. I'd like to think that is your readership and if they find the articles personally relevant. Sorry, but I want to know what these cards will do with 1080p monitors, and I'd be extremely surprised if I'm the only one asking.
