    EVGA is also showing off a few very interesting items. The first being a remote thin client. This unit gives you the ability to access a PC from an outside location, while the machine itself remains in a secure location. All the data is transmitted through a network connection. This includes the display information over DVI. The thin client can drive two DVI based displays, USB and audio. Read on for information on the X58 Classified board.

    [​IMG]
    Then there is the new X58 based mainboard. It is simply called "Classified" and features a lot of unique extras not found on any other boards. The obvious differences over their first X58 board are the color choice and the extremely large chipset cooler. The cooler actually lights up with red LEDs once it is turned on.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    But there is more, EVGA has included two eight PIN power connectors to feed all the needed power to the CPU, an onboard reset, power and clear CMOS buttons at the very bottom of the PCB. On top of that you will receive an small, external PCB so you will not loose access to these buttons even after installing three large GPUs. You will also find voltage measuring points by the memory banks, so that you can monitor them straight at the source.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Then there are the range of graphic cards. The GTX285 and GTX295. The first does not looks much out of the ordinary. The GTX 295 does feature the same cooler as all the others, but EVGA has added another heatspreader on the bare side of the PCB to further aid in cooling the GPU.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    EVGA is even considering offering PSUs. They are showing off two prototype units. One of them features a modular cable tree, while the larger wattage version does not. The latter has four 6 pin PCIe and four 8 pin PCIe power connectors. It should be rated somewhere around 1200W, while the smaller unit should be around 750W.

    Nice offerings from EVGA. This should be expected.

    Call EVGA. Maybe they can hook you up with one after spending 1000$ on their hardware.

    Hmmm I wonder who the OEM is on those power supplies. I might wait and grab one of those. Looks like ToPower but I can't really tell.
    EVGA is taking names man.. awesome motherboards, video cards, soon to be power supplies.. They might be the next ASUS :laugh:

    I really never cared for "color theme" of anything. As long as it gets along with each other, and works, that's all I care for! No fan boy here..

    No. That would be 6 GPU's, drivers don't work with that many.

    There would be no 3way sli on the 295's... it's all ready a sli card, just sharing one pcb slot connector... Now, their set-ups for going sli is alot different from ATI's Crossfire, if that's what your going at...

    I always wondered why they never added a back to most of the gpu cards, It would make the card safer with less exposed contacts and it just looks better.

    Well, the other series of GTX has the full cover also... And it's a PITA to take off for the first time..

    Good thing the cooler is good :) I don't think I will ever take this apart, the cooler is really good. 36c idle and 59c load.

    I should be done with my "Unofficial" review of my Thermalright HR-03 cooler by this weekend.. Just have to do a few things then done.. Just have to feel, "in the mood" to finish writing.. But I can say, that there really isn't a reason to take the stock cooler off... And that's most likely why they built the casing around it as they did.. The fan works, the cooling works, so why bother?!

    It's all good man.. You really never think about that... I remember when I got my GTX 280... Took pictures... did something I won't say (news article) and threw it in there... I really never thought of it, till I sat down, and looked at my case... Then after trying to take it apart, and taking 10 mins to do so... lol

    Seeing what EVGA has is always a highlight of the TPU CES coverage for me, along with Thermaltake and Coolermaster.
