Congratulations on the exclusive, I know how difficult and time consuming they can be. As to the card wow, though its such a shame for most it's going to be installed upside down so that beautiful shroud is going to be effectively invisible. Also it suprises me given the price and the audience its targeted at, why dont Asus have a custom waterblock for it instead of air cooling?

Yay I was right about what that was afterall, eh dude?

Seriously though, ASUS do love you. They gave you TWO for crying out loud lol. Fingers crossed they let you give one of them away

Cracking job though Tom, I'd be bricking myself stripping down £1000 of hardware to its constituent parts.

Knowing Tom's friends Bitspower, who made one for the MARS, they'll probably do limited editions for ARES as well.
