    KFA2, Galaxy's European front, is working on a limited-edition GeForce GTX 680 4 GB factory-overclocked graphics card based on an all-white design, the GTX 680 LTD OC V4. Derived from the April-launched KFA2 GTX 680 Hall of Fame, the new card swaps out the contrasting black+blue fans for white fans with white frames, and a dash of black for its decals. Much like the older card, the GTX 680 LTD OC V4 features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. The factory-overclocked card features 1006 MHz to 1150 MHz GPU frequencies (including GPU Boost), and 6.00 GHz memory.

    The KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 LTD OC V4 uses a milky-white custom-design PCB that uses an 8-phase VRM that makes use of CPL-made chokes, IR DirectFETs, tantalum capacitors, and a multi-phase proadlizer by NEC-Tokin. Its cooler consists of a large aluminum fin stack that spans across the entire length of the card, which is ventilated by three 90 mm fans which aren't LED lit (unlike the HOF). Display outputs include one standard DisplayPort 1.2, and three mini-HDMI 1.4a connectors. The card draws power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and can pair with three more of its kind for 4-way SLI. In the UK, it's expected to be priced under £450 (US $730).

    Ah once again the only card I want is a European sub-brand exclusive. And it would never pay to have it shipped because the euro tax already puts it out of budget.

    If I was ever to buy something based solely on looks, this might just be the first thing I'd consider.

    Looks are on opinion. I look at this and see all those chips, screws, and tags sticking out like sore thumbs on the white pcb. Either way, I bet it is a beast of a card.

    Many cards have "unlocked votage", as long as its up to 1.175v, for the most.

    And in a few months you'll have an all-gray card from the dirt and dust. :D

    reminds me of the time when Sapphire once made an ALL WHITE motherboard.

    this card is sexy as hell. If I had a tonne of money, id grab two of these and white PC case and call it project 'snow white'

    White is excellent as an Early Warning system for the Need of Cleaning.

    I hope the other vendors pick up on the white pcb trend KFA2 is creating. Price makes it exclusive but it looks damn sexy!

    White or black is where it's always at. I wonder if you can make white components as well? That would be damnable nice.

    Or colored components overall. I think I'm onto something here. That would be quite excellent.

    Wasn't it Sapphire that started with White PCB motherboards and video cards?
