    not only for them, i am in 0 to neg watercooling and i had to use neoprene and hunt water created by the difference of temp beween ambiant air and componement surface.

    going negative cost less and less each year and is quite easy to found nowaday (peletier cell, phase changing unit, vacuum cooling, or (like me) exotic fish cooler converted to WC)...

    maybe this is why there is more and more "LN2" option in the mainstream product (MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, Asrock...).

    I think its more like when in the old days car manufactures(yeah car ref)put giant motors in little cars to set records with.
    That gets the crowds attention when that happens and is good pr

    Hmm well as it will make sense to have an anti-condensate mechanism on there, really only the small group makes use of it... it shows what's doable though.

    Still, the question will be, are those extras worth the exclusive ROG fee? :rolleyes:

    Its really for the ram that runs slower when very cold.
    It keeps the rams warm while the core is at -120c :nerd:

    Oh, I thought it was more like something rl66 meant, working against condensate with very low temperature water :)

    citing the 780ti matrix release, the geforce 1080 will be announced before this card is available.

    Quality components - Yes.
    Quality electronic design - Yes.
    14 Fazes - No.

    So much fazes won't do anything, just raise the price of card. Maybe someone will find it useful - i don't.
