    That they did. But EVGA could have kept EVBOT if they were willing to shoulder their own RMA.
    AnandTech Forums: Nvidia Response to 600-series overvoling

    The conclusion I come to here is that MSI and EVGA were offering out-of-spec overvolting on their Lightning and Classified lines, and they wanted NVIDIA to still handle RMAs on those cards; or conversely, MSI and EVGA aren't willing to put their money behind their products.

    What is your thinking about NVIDIA move and decide to ask for EVBOOT remove??? Why they do that, I hope it's not sensitive Kepler GK104.
    MSI GTX680 Lightening have LN2 BIOS too but I'm not sure it's same like voltage increase with EVBoot.
    I don't know voltage limit on both cards. My thinking is best possible options is solder new
    GTX680 4GB Classified with new memory. With boot increase EVGA try to compensate maybe voltage limit. If something like that is possibile.
    Bigger boost on Kepler is everything I think.
    But mix of that two will be perfect.
    GTX680 is for me better than HD7970. But GTX580 Classified is model what I like.
    No doubt not only now, last two-three years Classified/Lightening models are far better than other, special Fermi Lightening Extreme, Classified.
    But I like closed cards.

    Uh... sure...

    Well, NVIDIA is the one who decide stuff about their own chips. No one can argue with them about it.
    If NVIDIA say that all kepler chips will include the stupid turbo boost - they all will
    Same goes for a cap of 1.175v on Vcore. MSI Lightning had the option to go even beyond 1.4v but nope, NVIDIA didn't want that to happend so they capped it in later revisions.

    Thanks a bunch NVIDIA, for really respecting your AIB's and users.

    It's a shame because Kepler is such a good clocking chip... I bet you've seen the results on OCN/[H] threads about it. People getting 1420+ MHz core clock... insane.

    You mean 1420+ MHz on AIR cooling???
    If someone pull 2100MHz from Kepler Classified GK104 can't be bad overclocker.
    It's almost double shaders during overclocking on LN2. Amazing.
    I like balance between good OC and double memory on card, double phases and card must be similar to stock.
