lol, great review!
EK is a company who do custom work:
-contact them by mail of phone
-send them your card (mobo or gpu ... etc etc)
-wait from 2 week to 1 month more or less.
-then pay the waterblock and they send you back everything.
(sometime you pay only the port if the card will be a future hit as the lightening from MSI... but it is not a rule).
i read this amazing review short while back and just stumbled upon it again looking for a 970 hof review,
it's gotta be my fav gpu review of all time.
When is the 970 mini its review coming ?
I just received my 2nd 980 HOF.
In this review, Hilbert said "We will need more voltage allowance if we want to go even higher, now if your search for a little tool called HOF_NVVDD which is created by an enthusiast party, not GALAX you might bump voltage to 1.3 Volts."
I've searched quite a bit and never found HOF_NVDD.
I couldn't find any water-blocks either, but I searched them out and found them at Bitspower:
There are 2 different versions of these blocks. The one I just posted, which has a full cover, solid white acrylic top, and another that uses acrylic + stainless steel.
The pair I bought came with the backplates.
If you order one of these cards from GALAX, you'll get a free GALAX "Gamer" 240GB SSD's:
GALAX has, just this week, started selling the HOF's with water-coolers by Diamond.
I took a look and am glad I went with Bitspower vga blocks.
I feel rather dumb for not realizing they had a webstore.
Hello guys, I found the HOF_NVVDD.exe tool on mega.
What a sexy card! And that cooling! VRMs don't even break a sweat. These custom 980ti are just stunning, this is probably my favorite so far. I would still probably go with the MSI Gaming, but the Zotac and this Galax are just nice! Great review.
Um this is an old review of the 980 HoF not a Ti.
Now I feel worthless. Such a noob. Dunno why I put "ti"there, guess it's just habit with all the 980ti reviews coming out atm. This 980 is really nice though, great job Galax.
It is a nice card wish more white PCB parts were available. I think the 980Ti is getting two HoF variants the normal one and one made for custom (read LN2) cooling.
Go read some of the 'recent posts' and you'll feel better lol
Haha... You're right. Feel better now. Cheers.
I only checked the Review for the Hoff pictures, the rest wasn't interesting.
Don't worry, I thought the same at first.
Great review though, and I really like Galax products.
Yeah, I remember when Galaxy and KFA2 merged into Galax and a lot of people were somewhat doubtful about the thing. Galax cards have been highly rated though, if nothing else they offer something unique from a visual standpoint.
I tend to go for cases without windows, as I'm usually not keen on how the internals of a rig look. That said, the white PCB/Design behind the HoF series is absolutely stunning. I could genuinely see myself building a white themed rig around it.
