    Why don't fans on graphics cards have grills. The number of times I catch my knuckle or finger on my graphics card fan when poking inside my machine is uncountable.

    I guess they assume you wouldn't be jamming your hand in the fan while it's running.

    Brewster 0 - Common sense 1

    It looks like a decent card, Anandtech covered it pretty well & it certainly meets the 30% over a 580 comment, still, its a LOT of pennies for 2 560Tis though!

    Let's be honest: anyone who more than occasionally fiddles around in their case gets bored of shutting down just to e.g. plug in an HDD and from then on it's just a downhill slope with what you can hotplug and get away with


    So far I've found RAM and GPUs don't work, in case anyone was thinking of trying it. But then I did unplug the RAM rather than plug it in, so maybe it works the other way round

    You tried to unplug RAM while your system was running? Do you have money to burn?

    Tried? I succeeded, I'll have you know! The system just felt the need to BSoD shortly after. In my defence, I had 8GB, needed 2GB from it, and was only using about 3GB so figured I had a chance one of my 2GB sticks had nothing important on it!
