Speaking of, I've always wondered... You know how the x58-OC started that tradition of properly spacing out the system board components to make application of insulation easier and what not?

What do you wish GPU makers would do to make your life easier?

The 7970 dcuII came with a separate heatsink for the mosfets to use with a pot, 580 matrix came with ready to go solder points for hardmodding, MSI lightnings come with an ln2 bios to eliminate cold boot bugs & more software voltage options. Just have to put it all together in a card with great power delivery.

So essentially heatsinks, ready to go solder points and voltage read tools (to make life easier?), and an ln2 bios in one card with like with an insane power delievery setup. Wonder why people haven't done this yet?

Too small of a market to justify the R&D would be my guess.

The DCII also has the hotwire which obsoleted hardmodding, and you don't have to deal with variables. I think that's kind of a big deal too.

i just got a zotac gtx 680 for 498+free shipping off sabrePC with a coupon. i think that's pretty good considering everyone is sold out or is priced $100 to $200 dallars more everywhere else. guess i got lucky and there still in stock.

The hotwire is nice, but only if using the r4e, can't just plug it into other motherboards & I still need more than 1 system to run all the 3d benchies. A good sandy bridge cpu will still kill most sb-e chips in half the 3d benchmarks. I do like the hotwire though, it is a great idea.

I'm still a lil miffed at Asus for the shoddy QC on the DC2. I had 2 DC2's on order with a R4E, but canceled due to the problems inundating the forum. That was the package man! Finally a/an proper easy button for OCP bypass and Asus, all they had to do was deliver some decent performing cards but no... mad.gif

But it's not so bad, I did get three 1300+ mhz core cards in return. thumb.gif

more VRAM is required for benching Vantage 'X', 3D'11 Extreme and HeavenDX11.. those are hefty records not easily snatched without a monster single GPU. Well worth a card like this. That is an extreme coolers dream PCB for a GPU.. Well done Zotac! Well done!! 

 

Lol @ the hotwire comments... replacing hardmodding huh... what do think your doing exactly with that solder then ..?doh.gif
