We all have different opinions on what constitutes a beautiful piece of hardware, but we're pretty certain that everyone will agree the Devil13 is gorgeous. As well as being in the terminally popular red and black, it is a work of art. So often coolers look as if they have just been bolted on from a parts bin (Gigabyte Windforce springs to mind) but the Devil13 is bespoke in every sense.

Although it would be a horrific oversight to not include a Crossfire finger on the Devil13, equally we can't imagine anyone will ever take advantage of it, short of winning the lottery.

Round the back we have the standard outputs of twin DVI, HDMI and two mini-DisplayPorts. The button is for the turbo mode which ups the GPU clocks from 950MHz to 1GHz. Although we hope to do better than that. Finally in keeping with the behemoth status of the Devil 13 it comes with three 8pin PCIe power connectors.

Nice card I guess but I have to admit these custom designed cards turn me off due to the difficulty in getting a water block for them. It feels like a card with a very limited market because the people who have the money and will to purchase such an obviously high end card are going to be the same people who water cool which would obviously limit its success in the market.

I wonder if they are partnering with EK or Swiftech to get a block for this thing? I don't know too much about it admittedly.Quote

good for power color! innovative and thinking outside the box. if the namesake
will not build a card, then so be it, they will. i was really meah.. until the afterburner
overclock and now thats what i think it should have come out of the box. not that
one couldn't do the same, but if left to the suppliers tool for performance, the
buyer would have been a lil sore. leaving a 20% performance gain on the table
at high end cost makes it better, but that should have already been binned for
customer appreciation.
really cool stuff from power color.. keep it up, 'cuz it looks like they are on their own
