[TomsHardware] Exclusive in TH Labs: Gigabyte GTX 680 OC WindForce 3X

If you've read our review of GeForce GTX 680, you'll know what we think of Nvidia's Kepler. How would one make a great product even better? How about some custom cooling solutions and a nice bump in clock speeds? That's what Gigabyte is promising with its GTX 680 OC WindForce 3X.

I dont think the pcb is non-reference per se... I mean look at the back, its using the same awefull voltage regulator. Which means this card still has no v control, but the stock volts must be increased as so the tdp limit.
