KFA2 GTX980 HOF Hall Of Fame Edition Review
We don't know if the HOF is going to be bundled with Watch_Dogs, but the box art certainly reminds us of that title. Either that or it's going to club us over the back of the head down an alley somewhere.
It doesn't feel like two minutes ago that we were mentioning the incredible job that ASUS had done on the Sabertooth Sabranco, getting a white PCB that didn't fade or yellow. If that smoked your kippers then you'll be delighted that KFA2 has gone the same route with the HOF. It's not just a white cooler, but a white PCB too. Quite why they went to the extraordinary effort of making the PCB a non-yellowing white and then covered it up with a silver backplate is beyond us. Seems such a waste.
The huge "Hall Of Fame" logo on the side of the KFA2 GTX980 makes us smile every time we see it. The audacity of it has to be admired. Why plaster your company name on the side when you can point at the exact place in the pantheon of great cards that you're aiming.
It has to be said, it looks the business. Even if we weren't fans of white hardware we'd be impressed such is the attention to detail. The cooler looks awesome, the light glows in a single hue without being dazzling, and the PCB is white. In looks terms this is HOF-worthy. Does the performance live up?
