    Looking forward to review, but... But doubt it can OC on air much higher than G1 or AMP! Extreme. Beast like this is ment to be run under the water loop and that's the only way to find it's limits and benefirs of custom PCB, 15 phase VRM... let alone extreme OC with LN2 which is not available for most of the mortals out there.

    HH, I know I'm probably asking too much atm but is there a chance to consider testing beasts like this under the custom water loop + adequare WC block or at least under big enough AIO (+ few fans around mem chips and VRM's) and to update review few days/weeks after initial review comes out? From my personal experience I know how time consuming it can be (20+ years of OC experience on my back), it'll probably require to hire one more person to do that but many of us old geeks here would like something (new) like that in G3D reviews. Not asking to do that for every single card out there, just for custom made beasts like this. Maybe to contact EK.... Can you please consider about this is near future, it'll bring G3D reviews to the higher level for sure, don't want to read about extreme OC reviews on other G3D competitive sites, we want/need this on G3D! Please, please, please... :)

    wonder if msi cherry-pick chip this time
    last 780lighting is not cherrypicked

    also compared to 980, they ditch "powerline-regulator" thinggie
    and seems also ditch back load-led
    this will vary between people, some will prefer this way to get pure-slick gpu
    some might prefer they got led, make it pretty bling-bling show on their case

    that 6+ 2x8pin power connector is crazy though
    wonder if someone dare OC that high on air (that stock lighting cooler)

    From the looks of it they didn't Factory OC the mem, for an 'enthusiast' card why the hell not?

    So why Zotac AMP! Extreme and ASUS Strix OC the mem if it makes no difference?

    This power is all for nothing if the silicon doesn't do anymore.

    How the hell can a mem oc make the core clock unstable.

    Nvidia limits the memory overclock from board partners, dont think you can go over ~7100

    AMP! Extreme 7220

    AMP! Extreme Core 1253 Boost 1355, so with a 7220 mem OC they must be the only AIB that can get it right as Nvidia don't (or didn't) allow AIBs to OC GDDR5 memory.

    I think he is misunderstanding the power target. It uses more of your power target taking away core clock overhead. All that can be fixed with a BIOS mod.
