Hope you can take the voltage up to 1.4/1.38v instead of getting stuck at 1.3v for max.

Expecting the card to max out somewhere in the 1200-1300mhz area for Watercooling. And if so will take one hell of a GTX780 to beat it.

I'm sure ppl will find a way to unlock voltage. From what I've seen so far I expect 1200MHz to be enough to beat every 780.

Sigh..read through four reviews so far, no F@H numbers.  Who cares about the FPS in crappy AAA titles, I want to see the PPD numbers.

yessir.gif Bought it day one and still haven't used it, lol. doh.gif Probably going to sell it off. tongue.gif
People are still hitting 1350+mhz on air, so there's that.
I'm just wondering if I should just sell it and wait for custom 290x's? What do you think? thinking.gif

That is really too bad never actually had a 4890 but back in the days it was the 4870 being the sweet spot.

Color me impressed! I really didn't expect this to live up to the hype. I think I'll probably end up getting one since I can't SLI on my motherboard.
