EVGA Releasing K|ngP|n Edition GTX 980

Evga and K|ngP|n himself have been teasing a new K|ngP|n edition card, this time in the flavor of the GTX 980!

The card specs itself haven't been released yet, but if you are an extreme overclocker, it should be a card to look for! Until we get eyes on GM200!




The card features the new ACX 2.0 cooling unit, in a completely custom aluminum shroud, with clear accents and RGB LED lighting. (who uses this card on air!?!)







I personally love the look of the card, but I think with the GTX 980 Classy already being grossly more expensive than other options, this card will fall short of the last KPE

Be easy on me... This is my first post... and more specifically my first news post!

Looks like Feb. 1st is going to be the pre-order date.

You have to have owned EVGA products before to get them apparently.

Nice article but for professionalism I would try to avoid using "!" so often, it just makes it look like your shouting this to us haha.

They're not that bright, I had them on my classified and hardly noticed them, but then again I wasn't looking inside my case when gaming

If its true that you had to have had evga products previously in order to be eligible to get one, they're obviously just selling it to the EVGA fanboys.

Calling crap product.

Like the last Kingpin card, Waste of time and money for everyday PC users and gamers, Not to mention fugly.
Yes you may get 50 extra MHZ but that's not going to change your gaming world.
