Well in this case I can't blame MichaelRW for it. I've done a TON of business with newegg over the years, dating back at least 10 years. Basically, I have done most of my computer upgrades through them and I have little doubt that the situation is similar for Mike - so I view 25$ as a symbol of customer appreciation, even though it doesn't directly involve newegg. Also, I do have some grievances with newegg because LATELY they have been selling used cards as new, which is obviously a sh**** thing to do to customers. With all of this said, i'm not asking for any money from newegg because i'm 100% satisfied with my purchase - and I get nearly 1.27V on my cards with BIOS2. I don't have software voltage, but the cards do have more legs than other cards do in terms of voltage (and software voltage coming sometime in the future). While the whole delay on software voltage sucks, I do think the voltage while using BIOS2 may be overlooked by some. I really like having that along with no kepler throttle (which no other 680 on the market has). Hopefully, MSI will get this mess straightened out soon. I think they were well intentioned with getting these lightnings to market, but perhaps they rushed this aspect of software support before it was ready...Edited by xoleras - 7/11/12 at 6:20pm
