Do want
Will be looking forward to the review tomorrow, i've been reading good things about these being very good for overclocking. I hope they are anyway, seen as it is what the Lightining cards are all about.

If I'm right you only need 8+8 pins for normal use the extra 6 pin is for Extreme OC'ing.

The 6pin and 8pin are for normal use, the extra 8pin should be for overclocking.
Unless it's clocked really high at stock then it might be the 2x 8pin for normal, but my bet is on the extra 8pin being for overclocking.

Mmmm yeah-ish I'm assuming that with this being the Lightning edition it is already OC'd somewhat & the 6pin being extra for going Clocking mental maybe even sub zero LN2. Only time will tell all I know is it's about ruddy time we saw a non reference PCB
