good grief, don't quote the first post or atleast have the decency to delete the pictures and all...

Just got my ENORMOUS package delivered (phantom) ! That's what my stepdad texted me an hour ago :'(. I'll only get to open / see it in a week when I go back home. He seemt pretty impressed by the size of the package lol, got me somewhat excited about unpacking it tongue.gif.



Ok, took the pictures of the gpu (as I said, I didn't take it out and the case is tiny) and as I know this is off topic, I'm going to make it on topic by adding something stupid but on topic like "will it fit in the Phantom ?". That being done and making me on topic I'll post the photos:

Has anybody ever seen that GPU ? And how the hell does a fan like that do any good -_-' ?


EDIT: The cables are indeed a MESS, but I just can't tiddy them up since there's no cable management space and they don't fit underneath the DVD and HDD (even if it doesn't look like it, I4ve pushed as many cable as I could under there... the PSU is just WAY too big for that tiny crappy XPS 8100 stock case).

The fan draws air in on both sides and pulls it across the fins on the heat sink inside and out the back of the case.

Why in the world did someone quote the first page lol.

@steelkevin That is a funky looking 560. I don't even see it on PNY's site. What a dumb place for them to put the power connectors. I would have returned it for sure. Especially since you want to water cool down the road. Just get it over with and do it now. Trust me it will save you a headache down the road.

Especially since you want to water cool down the road. Just get it over with and do it now. Trust me it will save you a headache down the road.

hmmm... that'd really be a pain in the ass. If I return it I can't get another one for that price and it'd take me 10+ € to send it back...

I could try contacting PNY's support to see where the hell that card came from. Explain why it's a problem and have them send me a regular one (RMA it). Not having the card for a couple of weeks isn't really a problem since gaming is a last choice of activity for me (I game only when I have nothing else to do, if I don't have the GPU I'll just organize things to do instead of only doing stuff when people ask) but it's obvious that I'd be happier if only that stupid retailer could've sent me a normal card frown.gif.

Yes, the power connectors would be better at the head of the card (is the right side the head ?)... as you can imagine my psu cables are kind of squeezed between the connectors and the rear pannel :s.


arf... tomshardware guys said they'd just keep it (maybe they're just weird lol, I don't really feel like keeping it anyway, to many cons about it).

Btw, I won't watercool a 560 ti anyway because looks matter to me and I want a transparent waterblock (which EK doesn't provide for the 560 ti). I'll probably be selling the 560 ti whenever something good (new) or a good deal shows up.



I'm really concerned about this GPU. How do you recommend I proceed ?



EDIT: **** ! Just checked the return policy of the website from which I ordered it. It's 15days for everything but some components (GPUs included) which have to be returned within 7days. I can't return it in time because I'm at my father's, over two hours from my place (mum's) where the box, CD, Manual, PCI / Molex cables... are. I'm only going back monday which means it'll have been over 7 days :s.
My only solution seems to be PNY's support :s.

If they don't want to send me a regular one in exchange of this one I could probably find some way to make it not work or not work as it should without them noticing it's my fault and sicne they don't seem to make them anymore by RMA'ing it I'd get a regular one.

EDIT: **** ! Just checked the return policy of the website from which I ordered it. It's 15days for everything but some components (GPUs included) which have to be returned within 7days. I can't return it in time because I'm at my father's, over two hours from my place (mum's) where the box, CD, Manual, PCI / Molex cables... are. I'm only going back monday which means it'll have been over 7 days :s.
My only solution seems to be PNY's support :s.
If they don't want to send me a regular one in exchange of this one I could probably find some way to make it not work or not work as it should without them noticing it's my fault and sicne they don't seem to make them anymore by RMA'ing it I'd get a regular one.

call them and demand that they accept the return. Be stern but fair. They will likely take it. I might say I tried to call but no answer on the holiday....
