I didn't think this would happen !

It's cool though. Well actually no, it will be a fireball, but for people with water loops it will be excellent.

This is actually for people on LN2! Altough, they will certainly byppass this to give the card even more power! But 450W shouldn't be sustainable, cards at these kinds of power rates will die very prematurelly even when cooled to sub-zero temps.

I suspect with a decently good unit and cooling, as long as voltages are in check, these drivers allow for a higher boost clock with little to no penalty in longevity.

I don't dare think what the Kingpin version will offer...
