    Looks nice, about the same size as OEM 5870?

    One of each: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

    Like the MSI 5870 Lightning, one 8-pin and one 6-pin can be used, with prolly two 8-pins for "extreme overclocking"

    Apparently the previous matrix cards had this feature, I'd assume the 5870 does too, which is awesomesauce

    awesome.. do the bars on the exhaust look a bit too thick to anyone else.. looks like their restricting 1/4 - 1/5 of the airflow.. i think first thing i would do is cut half of them out with pliers.. but im crazy... uggh just looking at it i get short of breath. need to BREATH!!!!

    I wish all of the 57x0 and 58x0 series cards had the full exhaust slot. Yes I water cool mine but I'd love to have the PCI-E x1 slot under the video card. I like the look:rockout:

    Thanks for the pics Inioch!

    Man look at that power array. A 10-phase?!

    Very nice to see the direct contact with the heatpipes, damn nice actually. Five thick heatpipes connecting to very good looking fins, and a well machined block. Way too much TIM for the gpu. Those gooey rubber pads usually have an impression of the vrm's if they've made good contact with them. I'd have to check that.

    Shaping up to be a sweet card. I'm hoping to grab two! :rockout:
