    That is a deceptively massive looking card.

    Why is the card soo much bigger past the mounting bracket? It's not just the waterblock but the PCB too. Can you still SLi? Cant see how the bridge will fit on.

    Depends on pricing as always, but probably worth a £150 premium over a standard reference card.

    :jawdrop: I thought the Seahawk was badly priced, this one just takes the biscuit.
    I can't see how they can justify £998.99 for a single 1080.

    Yeah that's just silly. You could nearly make an entire custom loop for the cost over a standard 1080.

    If that's an SP fan, shouldn't it be pointing at the rad as a pusher, not away from it as a puller?
