If you're the kind of overclocker who loves the smell of liquid nitrogen then you'll be pleased at the addition of a safe mode button on the Matrix, enabling you to push for the moon without fear of having to reflash every time you go a little too far.

If you think they look good on the table, then you should see them in our GPU test system. Oh wait, you can. Here they are. A single GTX980 might be powerful enough for all but the most 4K-enabled, cashflow rich users, but the incredible appearance of a couple side by side is something that cannot be denied.
