    There is a typo on the first page when you say : ''with temps reaching a maximum of just under 0 Degrees C with nice low noise levels.''

    As always, awesome review and a very nice video card.

    Yeah, I wondered about watercooled cards too, since it looks to have a 14 phase power design.

    I am curious on some of these high end cards why they still provide those nasty molex/pcie connectors. If this is catered for the enthusiast market then surely we have a PSU that does not require use of those accessories.

    And if a casual/new to gaming person were to purchase the card, then I would think said person would also know a good quality PSU is required.

    That being said, I like the potential on this card. Although it would look wonderful in black rather than the common red as I now see it.

    all its missing is 384 bit bandwidth. surprised there isn't a 384 version of the 980 cards. no reason to upgrade your 780's to 980's

    glad my EVGA GTX 780tiSC is still keeping up with the 9xx series. I look forward to seeing this frozen and clocked to the gills and where it lands then.

    Really love that design, GTX 760 Platinum i had, looked epic but felt so cheap and wasn't worth the price that was near a GTX 770.

    This baby will probably go into my new rig in the future!

    Well at least it seems to run a heck of a lot cooler than the Asus GTX780ti Matrix I had.
    That hit 82c on the GPU and 102c on the VRM's...

    I love the low temps and power usage of these cards, not to mention OC'D
    this is very close to the dual GPU beasts.
    Great job ASUS!
