    Remember the Colorful GTX 560 Ti iGame Kudan and how it made our readers scream "overkill"? What happens when you combine an over-the-top design, the Colorful iGame Kudan, with an equally over-the-top GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680? You get the Colorful GTX 680 iGame Kudan, the pinnacle of air-cooling for the GeForce GTX 680.

    The iGame Kudan's design methodology revolves around giving users an extremely tweakable and modular cooling solution, which can not only be modified by playing with its heatsinks, but also be re-painted to suit your style. Colorful included a pastel-set the last time around. Under the hood, the card is packed by a modular VRM. The main PCB has an 8-phase digital VRM, which can be augmented by an additional 4-phase circuit on a daughterboard, which gets attached on a modified SO-DIMM slot, which goes parallel to the plane of the PCB, on its rear. The card is said to have high out of the box clock speeds, with an even higher overclocking headroom. Colorful sells in Asia and Europe.

    It would be nice if this would've been the reference pcb.

    Kaboom baby! I want to put one of these on a Mini-ITX board. It will make it look even smaller than it is. :D Now that addresses an old issue, put 3 slots into the mini-itx cases. I want bigger cards :D

    Probably he was joking as well, some people just forget to put emoticons or troll faces on their coments.

    Nice concept! Will this card include a BIOS/software to allow for true OCing or are they still limited to DOC parameter's? If I had this card (or something similar to it) I would NOT want to be software/firmware locked :confused:

    Well with that daughter board with the I assume "extra" VRM phase and that ridonkulous cooler you would hope they would have some significant boosts on the clocks.

    They can add whatever they want to the card/s but as long as your BIOS locked it wont mean much, maybe you'd be able to run the card at the DOC max parameter's but that's as good as it'll get. You'll only be able to clock as high as Nvidia let's you :eek:

    Unless you get your hand's on a custom BIOS from a mfg or you hack & mod your own ;)

    Still posting from my phone :eek:

    Well I would think being a manufacture they would be able to manipulate the BIOS to their liking as long they stayed within NV guidelines.

    I was indeed....but pics get the lulz, so photoshop away. Good luck on your Panis manipulation ( the "*" was an "A" I assume)

    I would hope they make/include provision's (software) for better OC ability to take advantage of the improved HW but no one know's yet for sure :confused:

    IIRC W1zz said in his 680 review that the DOC allow's for a maximum 549Mhz "clock offset" but not sure exactly how it all work's as yet :eek: It's quite confusing as even when you manually set a clock speed the DOC override's it and set's what IT feel's is ideal at that given time, see W1zz's manul OC result's here http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_680/31.html

    We need the few TPUer's that have 680's to start posting up some OC result's so we can see for ourselve's what these card's are capable of ;) All i care about is W1zz's review's and end user account's, and even then i don't trust all end user's because many of them are blind fanboiis so you need to take them with a grain of salt. Unless you find someone who is unbiased either way :respect:

    IMO This "generation" is too close to call one way or the other (a few % here or there is hardly a "win" in my book's) and @ $500+ a card they can all stay on the shelves. Give me this kind of performance @ $300 - $350 and they'll have a customer again :cool:

    These guys have even taken the time to design a custom PCB... Looks gargantuan, dunno about the paint kit though, must be the most wtf 680 out there ATM...

    I wonder how widely distributed these will be through Europe, i love the over the top air cooling colorful uses but i do not really like ordering from outside the country.
