Better check if your local power company has the support of nuclear reactors before putting two of those in your system!

My 24/7 PC has 2 x AX1500i PSUs with 16 PCI-E leads between them so I think I am good to go.

I won't be getting any of these highend 1080 Ti cards though as if you are going to spend crazy money it may as well be on something even faster like a Pascal Titan Xp.

I may have a look at the Kingpin 1080 Ti when it shows up but it will have to be very special and fast, unfortunately I think the Xp will eat it for breakfast.

I think that Lightning models should become MSI's mainstream. Or at least styling. They should ditch that Gaming and red rubbish. This card looks lovely.

Now that I have seen it properly I like it more. I am guessing the white parts are RGB? If so I would only have the bolts down the middle, and remove the other ones. Love the side profile but man, looks like a triple slot beast ! Keen to see the back plate now
