A big plastic cover with a 80mm radial fan covers the abnormally large circuit board. EVGA has let the circuit board grow on the height to fit the power supply with 14+3 phases that according to the manufacturer will be capable of handling over 1000 watt, something that is backed up by no less than three separate PCI Express power connectors, two 8-pin and one 6-pin connector.
The graphcis card is intended for the heavy enthusiasts and comes with measuring spots for voltages and high quality capacitors, coils and higher frequency inductors. The graphics card also supports EVGA EVBot and a special overclocking BIOS for extreme overclockers.
