You mean someone who's bought an ugly gpu, whined about it on EVGA forums, and paid MORE to not make it less ugly?

It's a cosmetic accessory for a card that carries a £200 premium over the base models because it has an amazing looking (and performing) cooler, it's not like they don't know what the target audience wants.

Wish they made it for the XC Ultra cards too.

This site is turning into Reddit. Every thread full of moaning and constant criticism. It's cosmetic, some people like to mod their pc's and show off there parts. Do people moan about your ornaments or pictures when they come round your house?

Nope, as we don't have any ornaments, well i have a cool looking Christmas one, other wise they are just annoying need to be dusted all the time. As for picture's they would just get punched square in the nose.

And unlike the ungrateful people int he world i can just tell them GTFO.

What they should do is actually sell the cards with these in the first place, then again a extra $100 on the price tag LMAO.

As if the friggin " gazillion colored-RGB everywhere on everything" thing isn't bad enough already, now modders have become so stinkin petty & delusional that they NEED to add useless (and moar expensive) bling bling to every possible component.....

what a waste.....just turning tools into toys :(

We now have golden DDR4, why not continue this trend with other components?

Red trim - higher clocks
Blue trim - lower temps
Green trim - better perf/watt
Carbon shroud - Less sag

I mean, this is common sense :peace:

Well warranty is my main concern, in fact how it looks is pretty much at the bottom of the list for me.
