    including a pair of SLI fingers for quad-card configurations
    Except taking up three slots means you'll only be able to fit 2 in a case...

    ASUS's cooler is equipped with five direct-touch copper heatpipes
    From the picture it only looks like 3 are actually touching!


    Am I missing something or did they just get this one wrong?

    On a near identical system (ref Gigabyte 680 matched with the DCII's clocks) I net P9304 in 3DMark11 - the GTX 680's Tubo boost really is causing headaches.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    For the temperature and power draw charts, the under load label says 'noise during batman'. It happened in your last chart too D:. Sorry just slightly annoying .

    At a weight of 1.186Kg I am concerned for the leverage effect on the motherboard over a few months despite the back plate connection. Any thoughts on this re strapping to support it?

    Re: Reviews - ASUS GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP

    I'm just amazed that people can afford to spend £500 on a graphics card in this day and age. What with food and petrol price hikes. Oops, tha was a bit morbid.

    Sweet card. Wish I could afford it
    I got my GTX460 for £65, and that was a push. lol
