Ugly? No way. Looks like an electronic festival of the highest end components available.
Can't wait to see some scores when you have it running at its full potential.
I still think it's like a work of art too, but the soldering around the VCC joint isn't too pretty. I was going to use hot air to smooth it all out after globbing it on with the iron but once it flowed the air started blowing it around too much, so the plan didn't quite work.

Quick question... This thing you soldered... Is it just to give more energy to the board?
Will you be doing that just for bench or is it possible to fit that thing inside a case and use it 24/7?
I find that memory overclocking does help a lot increasing FPS, but most titan memories wont go too far. Is it because we lack energy or because or poor cooling? I installed some heatsinks in memory and VRMs, but I don't know it that does really help, since we cannot monitor temperatures ( I miss those from my 7970 ). Will you be doing something on them?
It replaces the stock vcore VRMs on the Titan, so running high vcore won't blow them up. It is done mainly to bench, although now that I ripped the stock power section apart & cut traces to make it work, it will never be able to go back to stock again so the zombie board will have to stay on. It can run 24/7 like this, but the universal waterblock or ln2 pot are the only cooling that will fit on the card.
For the memory a volt mod would likely get higher clocks out of it, but i have had bad luck with memory modding & don't usually do it anymore on a card I want to live for a while. Memory cooling doesn't make much difference, I put heatsinks on the mosfets (VRMs) but rarely bother for memory. It usually overclocks as well or even better with no heatsinks on it.
