According to the rumor mill, the silver one is supposed to be the TOXIC version.

Or just tape over the windows on your case. Bonus points if your case has no windows then no extra work required.

Yes, they work with the house Somalian who recommends the wines.

I prefer a more Sisyphean solution..

 

 

I would actually love to do up a case like that.

Now I only paid around $190 for my 270X back then iirc and this card will obviously be far more expensive but it is interesting to see the AIB's launching such over-engineered products for what is a $200 reference card.

My little brother has a couple R7 370's that have backplates and nice coolers (powercolor for reference purposes)
And they where only $180 AUD each.

But I do get what you are saying, some times these lower cards really do give off an over engineered vibe.

Things have changed. Because prices have gone up they have justified more expensive coolers. We still do not know the price of AIB cards though. If they are close to $300 it would be a big fail. $10-20 MAX really.

I think it somewhat has to do with the fact that the RX480 is really the only card they can make anything for right now. What other AMD card is really being produced? The RX470 is probably going to have the more basic coolers while the RX480 is treated more like a x90 series card. They probably did this too so if a x85 or x90 series comes out they dont have to make a new cooler or modify it.
