Yea i know but in all honesty this thread has lost all sense of proportion and has run it's course imo. Everyone said that this card could never deliver true 580 sli power and still draw anything close to the wattage the 6990 does, that it would have to be massively downclocked etc . Guess what, it is. Granted, it's unfortunate that some cards have died but a LOT of 8800 GTX's were faulty and died aswell but that didn't get the same kind of negativity surrounding it because of how great that card performed. Double standards ? Hell yes
