    I actually like it. I like beefy design cards(HOF, Strix, Lighting etc). Waiting for the review boss. :thumbup:

    Kinda off topic but I bought the cheapest(but good) 980Ti I could just to hold me off until Pascal.

    Why I'm saying this? Because they release some awsome cards and it kinda makes me regret not shelling a bit more for a "better" card. The Classy 980Ti commanded a whole 130euros premium for what I paid and the Strix another 80-100euros.

    Were they worth the price difference for a 50-100MHz OC? Maybe, maybe not.

    I usually like the Matrix cards, but a 3 slot card?

    What a waste.

    I wonder if these go higher than 1500/2100, seems to be the limit unless you go LN2 etc.

    depends on how much other hardware/power/cooling affect those numbers.
    they select the highest clocking chips, so there might still be some room,
    but i doubt that air/water will gain the same as on LN..

    Same goes for the MSI Lightning ;) Best chips that still max out around 1500/2200 in THIS case. And you're right, you'll never get near LN2 results simply because certain factors change so much.

    Maxwell does not really benefit from cards like the lightning and classy on air. You could get a reference 980ti hitting 1500 and a lightning or whatever stuck on lower than that. Luck of the draw.

    Yeah, the only advantage is better cooling, maybe less noise and neat looks (which don't matter if you don't have a side panel. GPU looks pretty good, but I hate the orange, I mean my mobo is all black and red, some silver and it's ROG, but this wouldn't fit at all visually.

    What happened to their super duper fan blades that push more rice?

    I got 2 of those fans on my R9 280x DC2 cards and thought they really work well actually, I wonder why Asus phased them out of all their cards.

    :3eyes: yes it is because when you open it look clean and pretty :) on my own PC everything is clean and neat looking despite i don't have a window...
    Present Perfect is a state of mind lol :)

    Nearly all matrix i have seen have finished their life with a water or Ln block to show their real nature unless that it is just a top pick card (wich isn't bad... :pc1:)
