Overclocking

If the value of a cooling solution can be measured by the overclock that you can squeeze from your silicon then the Arctic Storm hybrid option that Zotac have installed definitely gets a massive thumbs up. A frankly ridiculous 220MHz overclock alongside another 50MHz on the GDDR5 pushes the Zotac, at least theoretically, to the top of our graphs. Let's find out if it does.

Beastly slick looking card and the support pylon (nice addition Zotac) just what does this monster weigh? You can see you start to fold under the immense load. Quote

"Such is the universal belief in singularity of purpose that every single language and culture on earth has an idiom that means "the Jack of all trades and the master of none"." - I just love this sentence .

I'm quite surprised with the results on air, I expected it to fare worse as it wouldn't have the vapour chamber of the reference cooler, but then again it does have 3 stonking fans on it.

The weight, backplate and cost are the negatives to me, mainly the cost. As mentioned in the review you can get a middle of the road card and put a shiny waterblock on it and still save some coin, but I suppose this master of all isn't aimed at the likes of me.

Out of curiosity I wonder what thread size the barbs are, so you could change them for push-fits if you wanted.Quote
