@W1zzard you can do SLI benchies with these on a dual socket 13900K system?

No, i don't care about reality why do you ask?

Because 500w models weren't already ridiculous enough :D
You know that my Sharp Carousel Half Pint II microwave is rated @400 watts that I use to warm up my left overs.

Just thinking about it sort of makes my head hurt. Well it will be a great heater in the winter :)

I'm looking at the pictures and trying to figure out where to solder the EVC connections. I don't see it. I do see the voltage monitoring points though. Now I'm wondering if the card has software based voltage control that goes above the Nvidia limits just like the Kingpin cards did.

At this point I wouldn't blame GALAX for simply not including a cooler at all. Resolve all responsibility. You buy it, break it how you wish. If you're buying an HOF card you should know what you're signing up for, anyway.
why not for Aio cards not include the cooler : an option for who wants a custom waterblock and save a little on the card (and on shipping)
Option 1 : standard with cooler
Option 2 : card without cooler and included thermal pads (save ~50$)

You’d need to manage inventory of two SKUs - not worth it for a limited volume halo product.

Many questions arise. That this card needs at least a 1500W power supply with double-sided liquid cooling for use under normal conditions of higher consumption of 1200W and less. the present jumpers allow various options for trivially achieving record results with nitrogen and hydrogen, regardless the price will be abnormal and the product almost unattainable for most pll. The product is thrown out! Maybe it will enable SLI, I don't know, maybe you'll have to buy a quadro for these purposes, it's only available to the very rich. and disables 8K resolution growth. Yes, there are many extreme requirements that can only be achieved with such cards, and I'm waiting for AMD with new technology,to show that the ability does not end there .

Interesting whitish-greyish colour of the PCB - do you know that the dark coloured objects radiate heat slower, while light coloured objects radiate heat faster and generally stay cooler? :)

Not entirely true. Dark colors absorb more heat largely.

The 2nd power connector is to evenly distribute the power, of approx 600W when your doing LN2.

There's no way your ever coming close to the design specification of over 1200W, not even in it's lifetime. You'll likely fry the chip completely at 1000W.
