Great review! Has me wondering if/when we might see custom 680s that use different VRMs and are not voltage locked so that we would be able to see what a 680 would do with overvolting+overclocking (MSI Lightning 680 anyone?)

Love the look of this Zotac card... one of the sexier looking GPUs I've seen so far this round.

Great review as always Tom! Looking forward to seeing more aftermarket coolers on the 680, and also the 670 is looking interesting!

We liked the AMP cooler. Zotac should have used it on the 580 tbh.

Still can't wrap my head around some of the stock, stock oc, AMD and NVIDIA, amp, amp oc results tho. The comparisons just don't make sense.

Visually, not my cup of tea. The shroud does not really cover that much and the colour combo looks weird.

Maybe with silver heatpipes... Looks a lot like a ghetto mod to me. But the temps are nice Nice review.
