OOOH now it makes sense XD thanks allot. Still a bit mad tho... took me ages to chose a graphics card and it turns out that the major reason that I bought this card is restricted... Thanks so much for helping tho!
Even thou i don´t really like saying that..... Try looking at some ATI cards cheaper and still open for Voltages tweaks

yes I think I'll do that next time. It was my first time choosing components tho so putting an entirely different brand into the mix would have probably made me depressed XD

Yes it is BUT MSI failed....well to be honest Nvidia restricted msi and everyone else t o1.175 you can´t anymore change it.
called False advertising btw the reason why i would have baught PE edition before to Over volt them
I thought that MSI (and possibly other brands) kept their voltage tweaks at the cost of losing their warranty agreement with Nvidia (or something like that). Or am I mistaken here and are all Nvidia enthusiast power edition cards without voltage tweaks now?

I haven't kept up with this issue since the Toms Hardware article about MSI overvolting their 6xx cards and Nvidia trying to put a stop to it.

All had to EVGA had the first few 680gtx classified ship out with the support for EVBot. Now the ship them with the port removed from they cards cause they had to.



Here’s what Jacob Freeman from EVGA has to say:

Unfortunately newer 680 Classified cards will not come with the EVBot feature. If any questions or concerns please contact us directly so we can offer a solution.

Unfortunately we are not permitted to include this feature any longer.

It was removed in order to 100% comply with NVIDIA guidelines for selling GeForce GTX products, no voltage control is allowed, even via external device.

So taking the loss of voltage tweaks in account, are the Keplers still good value compared to Radeons for overclockers?
