Benchmark Scores well I've fried a 775' P4 12 years ago, that counts?
Yeah I've seen those videos. I'm not scared to do it because I feel I don't know how ,I'm scared to do it because I love the look of the reference card and I'd hate to alter it :laugh:.
seems like you are so confused, dont stick to much, take it apart, some sanding and spray paint and call it done!

I've actually disassembled the cards entirely including the LEDs & the whole 9 yards. I could've done it then, but I just I love that reference look and I'm the kind a guy who has a giant room literally filled with unopened toys from his childhood. Maybe when They get older and I fall in love with different GPU, until then they're still my babies
totally understood, im in the same situation for other hardware!

If you're referring to my report requesting editing of my OP on this thread, Sneeky PM'd me kindly giving me permanent access to edit that one post in this thread, but I see you've taken it away again. :ohwell: If I could please have that back, I'd be grateful.

I've already edited it a bit, but there's more to come, especially the two pictures I'd linked to, which are now long gone that I want to replace.

I'd add you to that PM thread so you could see, but I don't have the permission for it. I've therefore tagged @sneekypeet here to confirm what I'm saying and perhaps add you to it.

When i see this card i want to lick it like some girl! :pAll i see is booty ass, slick back and prone shoulders! I want AMD Vega performance under than X1950XTX skin!!! That would be epic! Recently the X1950XTX had it's 10 anniversary - the first ever GDDR4 card! What a monster this card was. I remember bench-marking FEAR and getting slightly more FPS with X1950XT 512 MB (not even XTX) than with the chopped 8800GTS 320 MB!

Aorus GTX-1070Ti is beautiful to me. Especially two of them together.

What's weird about them is that they're possessed.
I installed the Aorus software for them onto my PC and they OC properly, but the RGB lighting does what it wants to do and will not be controlled. (maybe they're just girl cards)

after scrolling through this thread, i have learned people have VERY different tastes regarding what they consider "aesthetically pleasing". IMO, under stated, sleek, is the way to go. to each his own i suppose.

I bought one of these a while back. It comes complete with its own RGB light show.
While I have to admit that its easy on the eye, what really stands out is it's performance.
This is a fast GPU.
