I was going to ask about how many you've sold, surprised they've not all gone.

If I had the money and running a higher res to 1080p, I would get one and WC it. Not a fan of the blue, but they do look sweet!!

We've not rolled it out into our PR channels yet, in a few weeks the visibility will increase and they will sell faster. :)

As with the 295x, very tempting.

However, after spending more than I should have on a 4k last year, I'm trying to hold off buying more visual hardware until DP 1.3 (or maybe HDMI 2.0) so the DP MST trick isn't needed. Also, I'm trying to remain optimistic about Variable Refresh Rate.

They are very tempting but I think i'll wait until companies start selling full 4K monitors then upgrade my screen and GPUs at once (that's gonna hurt my wallet lol).

The main reason I am hesitating to snap up two if these is I am not sure if it will be easy to watercool them effectively due to what is presumably a unique board layout. What do you all think about this?
