Ya I agree with you guys also. Since I have it and can't afford a titan I am going to have fun with it but I regret the purchase a ton. I was having a blast with my strix and just about broke 2100core with it. I should have stuck with it or gone with the matrix or hof. I am definitely not a guaranteed kpe customer for next gen like I was this gen. And after the price difference between the classy and other top end cards I am not a huge fan of the 980 classy this gen either. I also can't believe I paid almost $800 for this card when for another $200 I could have bought a titan. There releases were so close.

I really don't see the price difference as worth it anymore either. I don't think the kpe offers so much more that it should command such a huge price increase. Most top 980 results on the bot were done with much cheaper cards. I mean the hof and matrix were around $650 which were perfectly priced.

I think i get what you guys are taking about. As a first time owner of said card, you guys are the extent of my support. I would not even know what the switches are for., if not for the information in here.... This forum is very helpful but it seems that the other forum for this card is not very active.

Their market share in the US is so strong due to the brand loyal customers, I think that they don't feel the pressure to follow through with the support in a visible and meaningful way. mad.gif

IMO, they are likely focused more on the EU market, and making inroads there to expand sales.

This is coming from a guy who's purchased 3-4 cards of every single EVGA high end card back to 8800 GTX.

3x 8800's
3x 280's

That's actually pretty good. My old setup I was using with 2 x Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX980's in SLI I got just over 19,000 with a moderate oc of around 1,425mhz core and +50 memory and this was when I tested it on my friend's rig using an EVGA X99 Classified mobo with an I7 5820K 6 core cpu. So comparatively, your score is pretty decent. Can't wait to get my setup going, right now i'm stuck with my backup equipment, an Asrock H61 mini ITX mobo running an I5 3570K quad core since I don't have an LGA 2011 heatsink and i'm saving money for the waterblocks for the two SLI 980 kingpins I have. I bought a universal one for one card thinking the full cover wouldn't be coming anytime soon, so i'll have to sell that I guess. But once I get all the blocks/tubing/fittings etc.. I can stick it all in my caselabs SMA8 on the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition and I7 4820K; and with all the radiator space I have (XSPC EX 480mm, Black Ice GTX 360mm, EK XTC 420mm) I should get great temps even with sli kingpins and an I7.

Btw, are the benchmarks you ran on air cooling, water, phase etc..?

Thanks DarkIdeals, caselabs SMA8? I would kill for one of those cases! I wanted one in gunmetal grey so bad but i just could not pull the trigger. The kingpins air on air as i just got them and waiting on ek to make a full block. I have to say that taking these coolers off is going to be painful as they are by far the nicest i have ever seen.
How much do you think the ea blocks are going to cost when they come out?
