They give you a longer flexie connector wink.gif

I'm the only one impressed by the sli scaling, 1.96-1.98 on 7 results.

So you are essentially paying extra for stuff that isn't going to allow the gpu to overclock any better than the reference models (except for the heatsink).

Why doesn't MSI just allow the unlocked voltages anyway like they did with the 680 Lightning at first? Green Light specifically says its OK for the AIB's to allow for voltage adjustment but that it voids their warranty with Nvidia. So why not just make it clear in the form of a EULA or something that if you enable full overvolting control that your MSI warranty will be reduced or nullified? That way they don't have to eat RMA's, Nvidia doesn't care one way or the other, and end users who are willing to take the chance can enjoy voltage control?

Only problem though is how do you make certain that over voltage is what caused the failure? Honestly they would have to test out every component on that pcb to make sure that it didn't fail.. and then after that they have to somehow prove that it was over voltage that caused the death of the gpu, and not some other internal issue with the gpu.

Whether or not they have the capability of doing that or not is irrelevant considering the amount if time/effort it would take to do the work. I doubt they would go through all this effort honestly. And I think the gtx 680 lightning was a fluke of msi getting away with one.

Was there a 670 lightening? I thought only the top cards get lightening editions, like the 680/7970. Did MSI abandon the Hawk versions?

I like this idea, although it would be hard to figure out a way to pull it off. Maybe something like a bios where you have to send in your serial # to get it.

Usually just one higher end card for a Lightning in each generation, although this time around the 770 lightning is pretty much a refreshed 680 Lightning, they were already set up to have the PCBs for it.
I'm really hoping for a 780 Lightning still...
