Have any of the review sites with the right equipment to measure this overclocked one of these and seen the resulting draw on the motherboard slot?  Will all the additional draw be from the 6 pin connector or will overclocking re-introduce this "problem"?  Looking at Tom's and PCPER they retested at stock clocks.  Maybe this reference card is best left at stock anyway, and an 8 pin would be best from an AIB to overclock, but that would likely eliminate the blower cooler option to exhaust heat from the case.  Running FAH and BOINC can keep a card maxed for days at a time, it would be nice to know what this does under those conditions and overclocked.
