Saved ~100mb before by killing it.

Was interested in the card until I saw it was only half of that, lame

How many different versions of each nvidia card are out there? Bloody hell. We all love variety but come on haha.

They should be putting these kind of coolers on dual-GPU cards.

The thing is, this card just LOOKS really damn cool. I'd be tempted if I saw it on the store shelf.

I don't mind the triple slot cooler at all, you can always SLI it with a dual slot card and it'll be compatible with most boards and cases out there.

In my opinion this product is a bit pointless, they have the 580 and 570 Direct CUII, and the MARS2 coming out at the very high end. There's no point putting out another product in between the two. It'll be interesting to see which one overclocks better between this and the MSI GTX 580 Lightning.
