Nah, they also say the same thing. Also, it would be actually harmful to plug it on above zero- why unnecessarily heat up the memory and hamper memory overclocks?

From the quote you gave, it seems like the memory heating/thawing would only be active if you flip the microswitch that they site. My intuition says that having the molex plug connected wouldn't do anything (helpful or harmful) if you have the memory heater switched off.

Likely that is the case, but why do it at all unless not needed?

Are you asking why plug in the molex connector, or why include it on the device?

If you're asking why you would plug in the molex if you didn't need to, I don't think there's a good reason to.

If you're asking why Asus would include it on the board, I think it's most likely a response to the EVGA K|ngp|n edition 780Ti, which they launched as a "true LN2 card."

I meant the former- no need to plug in the molex above zero even if a switch controls its usage.

If Asus binned the matrix cores as high as the kingpin cores then that would be some tough competition. So far I'm guessing it's gonna take quite a few cards to go through to get a good core, which is the real waste on these matrix pcbs. The 7970 had the same problem. Insane pcb, mediocre cores. That's what separates the kingpin as a true ln2 card imo.

OK mine KP Classified give about 950 points more in 3DMark Firestrike Performance GPU Score. That's because higher clock out of box and for gamers that mean lot.
They are no so nice to show us 3DMark 11 GPU Score and then we need to search processor, memory, etc... Because P score and X score depend lot from Processor.
You see how much are difference memory on 2 samples. One samples on Guru3D hit expected 250MHz (+500) for Hynix, and +45 for GPU Clock, I doubt they want to push +45MHz only.
Target was probably +100 for GPU...Other sample on Ocaholic give almost identical Graphic score.(I only look that, no time for search different model of Intel processors), if no bottleneck 90% that is important. ...but they push memory only to 1850MHz but much more GPU than Guru3D. 1247MHz boost on 1212V.
No doubt for someone who want fabric overclocked card for gaming K|NGP|N Classified is out of box stronger card. Stronger even then overclocked sample from Guru3D.
They confused me with 2000 points in Unigine Heaven, than I saw 1600x900 resolution.
No need for such resolution I think 1920x1080 is resolution where people can compare better such cards.
People are completely right, no such Hynix or Samsung and warranty for 200-250MHz memory.
One Hynix hit +500, other +200. Same is with Samsung.
Obvious ASUS was not so brave to give 1050MHz GPU Core.
That's expected because I hear today hospital in Tai Pai are full of kids in half trans who cry for ROG Matrix and all of them want sample for self. I can bet they could sell 50.000 easy. Who will bin so many chips... Because good part of NVIDIA GK110 chips probably are unstable and on 1050MHz boost, not on 1050MHz base clock.
