    What appears to be real?

    Well let me know when you get yours.

    You can order the 29th Anniversary Edition version here:

    So, there are actually 2 Special Edition GT80S 980 SLI models, and I would assume a follow on normal every day 980 SLI edition, so that's 3 models :)

    I am waiting for the benchmark results of all the new Clevo / MSI models before jumping off into a new laptop. It's nice to have so many choices.

    Guess i will have to wait and see. It's been over 6 months with talk of a 980 sli setup. Still waiting on that.

    Now I have to call Ken to see if they actually have one.
    Edit: If Ken confirms then I will be force to jump on Team @hmscott.

    Edit:

    Going to reserve this...i can't tell what that guy has in the first video.

    Pretty much the reason why I never even considered the titan a choice. POS CPUs are not acceptable to me.

    At least with you we don't have to ask you to please benchmark it, and wait for weeks for no response. Looking forward to the results :)

    Do they offer the 2nd 330w power adapter + coupler, you probably already have it anyway :)

    The other guy, the video, was of the Blizzard Hero's special edition, unless you are into that game it's probably not of interest - it's got cool looking graphics on it.

    The other thing I heard, but not sure, is that the Hero's editions are Asia / European release, so it would require an import to the USA.

    Maybe we should move the GT80 portion of the discussion to the GT80S 6QF SLI 980 forum?

    Be A God of War - The new MSI GT80S 6QF Titan SLI!

    Is this to do with the prema bios you've been talking about?
    Any links to how to do it? Thanks

    Mounted new 1mm heatpipes. Temp of GPU 2 is now roughly 8c warmer under load. Peak temps are in Heaven in the region of 65c for GPU 1 and 73c for GPU 2 with maxed fans. CPU gets a little bit hotter now, but this is difficult to quantify.

    I am still not completely satisfied. Next thing I will do (when I find the time) is to remove the black paint from the original clevo heatpipes because I think heat transfer between original pipes and additional pipes is not optimal.

    Any suggestions what would be the best strategy to remove the black paint?

    I'm not so sure it's a good idea unless you want to scratch it in specific areas. Black paint, if it is what I think, increases thermal radiation, so if you remove it completely it can give an exactly opposite result.
