Under the Hood

Under the Hood (aka taking our brave pills...)

Anyone who doubts where some of your money has gone, doubt no longer. Two mahoosive lumps of solid copper ensure that the chips are cool at all times. Yes you read that right, solid copper.

As you can see here this is no "copper base and aluminium head". No siree. Quad-heatpipe loveliness with a shine we haven't seen since Matt Lucas' head.

With the blocks off we find that everything that could have its head spread or sinked has been. No expense spared indeed.

The backplate and main power cooling/RAM assemblies are one-piece jobs which not only make our lives easier, but without any gaps it's much easier to ensure even heat build-up and dispersal. Surface area is king with heat.

Finally the naked board in all its cover-your-eyes-gorgeousness.

It seems strange to be talking about value-for-money with a card at this price-point, but the whole thing just oozes quality.

Finally a bit of a 'Haynes Manual' shot with the card nicely laid out.

So as you can see, there is nothing on the planet that comes close to the build-quality, thought and sheer gorgeousness of a ASUS Ares card. We can't wait until we're allowed to tell you how it goes too.

What's that? There is another page to go? Really?

I wonder what could be on that one.

Shall we find out boys and girls (and heads of jealous websites)?
