    I do like the look of these, always have, but no need for me to change GPU's atm.

    I have a lifetime boycott on pny. I had a 4600ti flagship card crap out on me and they tries sending me an fx5200 I think. guy said it was comparable because it had more memory bandwidth. what a crap card. after some back and forth bs they finally sent me a 5900 non ultra I think. Told them to go fukc themselves

    They're making one for the Classy too. Even better. :nerd:


    I had some VRMs crap out on one of their boards I was using and it ended up taking a QX9650 and my ram with it. The board wasn't even 2 months old and I had everything running at stock when it happened. RMA was denied and I was never given a reason why. So I have avoided them on principle ever since. This was shortly before the VRM debacle started popping up the internet too.. So I just put 2 and 2 together after I starting reading about it.

    I just got myself the asus 780 OC CU ii,
    Hitting 1293 on boost clock with a max of 73c on core.
    Max fan usage has been 68% during gaming,
    10 phase power is a bonus and power target goes to 110% default bios.
    100 pound less and equal performance of the msi.
    I was planning to get the msi but didn't see any benefit at all when comparing with the asus card.

    £100 less and I haven't found the overclock sweet spot yet :)

    I wonder why im so far down on the physics score,
    cpu I think.

    That was on stock bios? Or with 1.21V mod?

    Anyone here bought one of these? I'm curious to see if they actually overclock as well as they did in the review sample, and how the temps are inside a case with an overclock.
