LOL you have no idea what triple the voltage spec can do to a card. When we overclock a card we do not ad triple the voltage. We ad small increments to increase performance.
What MSI did was bypass the PWM voltage control allowing massive amounts of power through at ANY given clock speed. THat my dear friend is NOT good for performance. That my friend fries caps, and fried caps, effect perfromance in a negative way. A very negative way.
you're making in assumption that all the cards that existed fried up and stopped working. No, they haven't. they just are at an unsafe level and were forced to change due to nvidias green light program. the voltage unlocked cards are known to have performance gains. Albeit, keeping it a secret from nvidia wasn't the greatest of ideas, most people are over-speculating what actually happened with the cards. Show me physical evidence that peoples cards have died, and not just an article.This video showed what could possibly happen with performance when the 660ti PE was unlocked and shows a clear performance gain
Although it is probably extremely unhealthy for the 660ti to be overvolted, assuming all of the cards had broken capacitors is faulty logic.
