well, the reason behind this is (afaik) the reference cards are not as overclockable as custom ones.
I really like the Poseidon (I will change that red to green with some vinyl or paint) and it will be less hassle when installing. I just need to make sure that the water pipes are copper/nickel and not aluminium.

I'd switch to the Asus Strix 980 Ti and use the Bitspower or EK block for it. I went with the Bitspower block. Both look a lot nicer then the Poseidon in my opinion.

Edit: I didn't realize the Poseidon was as cheap as it was, I thought it was priced at $800. For $679 that's a good deal. I still prefer the Strix + Bitspower combo personally, and it will be easier to link them in SLI with the Bitspower block.
