    Just placed a order with OcUK for 2 of these, which will be here tomorrow. :)

    EDIT: They have just arrived! With a free bag of Haribo Sweets! Thanks OcUK for another great service! :D

    Palit GeForce GTX 680 Jetstream 4096MB

    3x GTX 680's although, I won't be testing Tri Sli, as the EVGA GTX 680 2GB is For Sale BNIB, and wrap in cellophane.

    What's in the box?

    8+6pin power! Should yield some great OCing potential! :D

    Now going to be off for a few hrs whilst I install these, and run some tests. :D

    Enjoy!


    Hopefully with the custom cooler, I should be able to get some good OC's on them. :D

    EDIT: Pic's of the cards installed in my rig. (Excuse the over exposer/poor quality from my iPhone)

    Sweeeeet!

    Are waterblocks not out yet for GTX 680? And not being a reference cooler, will they fit when they are (I assume its still the same PCB layout)?

    Your insane sums of money, and the spending of it sickens me :lol:

    Now could you provide me with your address whilst I try to find my balaclava and ninja shoes? :D

    On topic, will you be able to get waterblocks for them at some point?

    Are they renders?

    Will be interesting to see how they perform.

    Those fans look noisy. How will noise levels compare to the single axial fans the 2gb versions have?

    I'll be watching the benchmarks of these very closely (single card config) versus the 2GB model. However I might hold off on buying any of these cards until more 6xx series cards come out. From what I recall the 680GTX is really a rebadged 670Ti with the "real" flagship still not due for awhile- and that's probably the main reason holding me back from buying because I expect the prices to fluctuate a bit.

    :D

    Waterblocks are out for the Vanilla GTX 680, but I will need to find out more info on whether these will take Vanilla WB. :)

    LOL. I will be looking into this, but I think they can take the Vanilla WB. Best thing for me to do first, is see how far they OC, and then I can see if these will need a WB to keep temps under the 70C threshold, that seems to down clock the cards, when they get to 70C. :)

    What do you mean?

    I will be posting benchmarks of what VRAM usage they use in demanding games like BF3 & Crysis 2 etc.


    Think this Clip says it all. :)

    Yes, the GTX 680 is a rebranded 670Ti. I'm going to keep these till Maxwell comes out, followed by a 4K screen, as it seems these will be due next year. :)

    I honestly don't know whether to love you or hate you for your commitment to insane hardware.

    Want.

    4K screens sound great... I just hope they're IPS or an equivalent variant. I can't find any good reason to replace my 24" IPS monitors (x2) apart from maybe preferring 27" or 30" but as it stands and with 4K seemingly "around the corner" I might as well wait it out.

    Hello Mate


    Glad you got it sorted :)


    Ill have a look at a card now to see if the layout allows EK blocks for you.



    EDIT:
    And heres a PIC for you.

    Ive made it a little smaller but not fully (auto resize on here will sort that) so you can have a look at it and decide for yourself.

    From what I can see, the EK blocks should fit but I cant promise anything :)

    The Image doesn't show it very well but the PCB is identical in dimensions etc
