    I'm sure OCUK and Gigabyte are doing everything they can to find them. If not Insurance will sort it out.

    I've seen a lad post elsewhere that he's struggling to get his evga SC to 2000mhz. So clearly while it's possible for every card, the ones with the lowest base clock have to furthest to travel when OC'ing them in order to get to the highest clocks people are reporting. It's why I ordered an xtreme, high clock to start with so less work to get an insane clock. Plus the Palit cards are ugly as hell.

    I'd say the silicon lottery is having the biggest impact this generation, not the pre-set clocks. Hence why some retailers are having to release non-oc versions as they can't stabilise them. I've seen FE get to 2100 and Msi Twin Frozr only 1950. The pre-set clocks don't guarantee a big boost. For the boost to stay consistent you need water or an excellent cooler, but that's based on American benches, hopefully UK temps will make the cards throttling less of an issue.

    I may be wrong but normally companies won't pay for the cards up front and will only settle the bill 2 or 3 months after the cards arrive. Therefore they have to pay for them based on the new exchange rate rather than the rate on the day the cards were delivered.

    Yet instead it's took 6 weeks just for the FTW card to get into customers hands. I'm asking nicely please don't give false hope on the classy and hybrid for the end of the month if you were a betting man as we all know end of the month is very unlikely and August or September is more like it for worst case. Still of course I'd like to be proven wrong :p :)

    I gave up on the FTW. It seems like i'd have to wait until august ><. I went for the 1070 AMP Extreme instead.

    It really is getting ridiculous now.

    All I can say is that next time a card comes out I will just keep my old card for 1-3 months and wait until the new cards are fully available.
