Tom, one small suggestion, usually I'm not a grammar Nazi as long as I understand what anyone is trying to say but the way you pronounce "Poseidon" made me cringe when I was watching the Rushkit video

I really like this card, it looks absolutely awesome. In my opinion though Asus need to drop the price by £30-40 to further distance that gap between full cover and this hybrid cooler.

Personally, if I was going all out to watercool my rig and considering the costs of the Poseidon is the same as a 780 with a full cover block, I would go for the full cover over this.
But, if the price of the Poseidon was that £30-40 cheaper then I (and many others) would be more than likely to go for it.

For the convenience and warranty issues and all the rest of it, it is worth it though.

I really do like this card, very good design. A well deserved innovation award.

It was a shame ASUS were unable to change it to a 780Ti variant, but that's more nvidia's fault than anyone else, releasing a new gaming flagship without any notice.

I do hope we will see more cards of this design in the future.

A good review, but I'm afraid I personally wouldn't choose this card over a standard reference card, full coverage block and backplate.

I feel your pain mate, it's like scratching a blackboard to me.

Is it a deliberate thing though as in posser idon.... I don't now. Its Poseidon, as in the Greek god of the seas.......
