I quite agree. The Mars 2 looks suitably sexy, 3 less so. But the first one is so sleek.
I've been assured it's not final. Gonna tell them to turn it up a few notches on the design.
Please, please, please could you tell them to do either this or the DC2 with a prefitted waterblock, as if you did it, charged £30-£50 more people would flock to it! And then we'd keep the ROG styling rather than having to paint our blocks (take it from it, its a PITA!!!)
They really should do a waterblock version of the MARS. I mean after all most of the people can afford it have a WC cooling rig.
I'd say the styling on the Mars III needs to be more aggressive, that's all. The card itself looks amazing, it's just not as powerful looking as the MARS I or II, even though there's three fans on it.
It's not a keyboard so no need for ejaculation here.
They'll be approx the same performance as SLI 680s
They may as well turn it up a bit. After all, it is the most bonkers card out there, and when you are dropping that sort of cash on one component it should be the best looking card on the market.
And this is a very interesting idea indeed!
They'll never do a waterblock only card because it's market is too restrictive, plus, they said they'd rather not infringe on the business of specialist 3rd parties. However I've been pitching them to do an LLC version, seeing as everyone pretty much has a case to suit this these days.
lol! Yeah, because it's market isn't restrictive already.
Could you not hypothetically do one that allows for Watercooling? Kind of like those old ASUS Maxmius motherboards with the southbridge?
Or was that XFX/EVGA's 680i?? Just a heatsink that allows the pass through of water. Not necessarily a full on water block. And LLC version would be effing awesome.
but the backplate on Asus mars is not that good looking compared to other Asus cards and eVGA backplates
