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.

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.

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.
