Is it me or does the Leadtek 6800's look extremely ugly?

That plastic piece over the heatsinks makes it look rediculous. I was planning on going with Leadtek again but I can't stand opening my case to see something like that.

Its not even close to reference design, but perhaps it works better? Are there any reviews on this card available, that you guys know of?

As for overclocking, we did it with both cards, and they both revealed a good potential (see diagrams below). Unfortunately, the drivers clearly hindered their full overclocking, and it was impossible to reach really maximal frequencies (here again, we set our hopes on Alexey Nikolaichuk).

At nominal frequencies, maximal heating was 72°C with no additional cooling:
