The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition uses Military Class III components that give overclockers a level of quality and stability they can count on.

    MSI Power Edition Architecture Boosts Overclocking Potential by 22.5%
    The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition graphics card is based on the MSI Power Edition architecture: Afterburner's Triple Overvoltage allows the GPU, Memory and PLL(Aux) voltages to be adjusted. The Enhanced PWM design provides 25% more current than the reference design to ensure high stability during overclocking.

    Twin Frozr IV: 20°C Cooler and 11.7dB Quieter than Reference Board
    The MSI GTX 670 Power Edition is equipped with MSI's latest Twin Frozr IV Thermal Design. MSI's exclusive Dust Removal technology automatically reverses the fans at startup to prevent dust build-up dust and optimize the cooling module's ability to dissipate heat.

    Patented Propeller Blade technology provides 20% more air flow over conventional fans and increases the effective cooling area. When combined with dual 8 cm temperature-controlled fans, SuperPipe technology, and a nickel-plated copper base, temperatures are effectively reduced by up to 20°C and noise by 11.7dB!

    Military Class III Components Guarantees High Quality and Stability
    MSI Military Class III components have been independently tested to meet many of the strict requirements specified by the MIL-STD-810G standard in order to guarantee high quality and stability. Military Class III components used on the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition include Tantalum Core Hi-c CAP, 30% more powerful SFC, and Solid CAP with up to 10 years of service life. This choice of materials reflects MSI's firm commitment to delivering trustworthy and dependable products to its customers.

    Check your local retailers out, I think some might already have pre-orders up. (don't look at the speeds though!)

    I'm fully aware of that, that's why I said check your local retailers as that info should start to trickle in now.

    That's the 670 Power Edition, Launched at the start of Computex and the original topic.

    The card intelnvidiaftwwtfbbqsauce asked about was the beast powering 3DMark for Windows 8 at Computex, the GTX 680 Lightning:
