    As Prema said, I would probably add the MOSFETs too if you have any intention to OC, or else you will have a very expensive paperweight.

    Ive been eyeing this one with the intention of adding one more heatpipe from the vrm section of the card. I believe my last 980m died due to overheated VRMs and i dont want it to happen again.

    aw thats bad news...would force potential upgraders to try and sell off the zotac box without gpu and the old gpu separately....

    can the 90W cap be altered in any way via vbios or is that some kinda hardware coded thing that cant be changed? :)
