Watched the Vids mate, nicely done with the entire review, and great cards!

Not my cup of tea with the whole AIO WC though..... i like modding, but to buy it like that, seems odd

Great Reviews Tom,

The card looks great and benches even better..That is a lot of CASH

I do miss the Crysis benchmark where you blow the hell out of the chopper

Way to much cash but people want to pay for it but sure someone bought it and is happy.

That does it! I´ll stick to Devil 13, where You do get the accessories at a much lower price and virtually the same power. I will NOT pay £500 - 600 for a metal suitcase worth around £50! Come again, Asus. You know better!!!

It's alright saying that, and normally I would agree wholeheartedly with you. The price is not justified at all, and can be considered rather insulting to those who realise where the extra money is going. The Devil13 is certainly the better buy.

However after googling furiously for ~ 2 minutes I could not find a place that actually sold the Devil13, save for a few "new" ones on eBay, and of course you can see the flaw in siding with a product that is not readily available at this moment, and is labelled as 'discontinued' on Newegg.

That is a real shame, considering that the card was only revealed around the end of September last year....

Hopefully this AIO monstrosity does not stick, as it is clearly a huge hindrance to anyone who buys it and a disastrous design choice.

What's the power draw of a 1X card set up and 2X card set up please?

Sorry You cant find it in UK. As I am Danish, I of course Look for it in Denmark. It is stille available in 4 different outlets, the cheapest of which is: http://www.sikkenemt.dk/index.php/ha...13-hd7990.html . The price is 8121,- dkr. which is similar to £945. Hope this is usefull to You.
P.S: That price is about 40% of an ARES II, so I will defenitely not go there...
