KFA2 unleashes yet more anarchy with two custom NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti cards

Previously KFA2 announced their custom designs of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 but have now moved onto the more lucrative and fresh market of the GTX 560’s. As the GTX 560’s are finally with us, NVIDIA’s partners are starting to let rip with various customisations of this board.
The GTX 560 Ti LTD OC card by KFA2 is built onto a completely unique white PCB with a huge aluminium fan stacked on top – as well as a four heat-pipe based cooler linking the two.
It’s not just a small paint-job and new cooling system though, from the ground up it has been re-designed to squeeze the most performance out of the GTX 560’s GF114 GPU while still keeping power consumption fairly low.
For starters, the power input design has been altered by adjusting a six-pin PCIe to an eight-pin which allows two dedicated phases for the memory so the 1GB GDDR5 will never be starved of power. The memory itself has also been upgraded to a very fast 0.4ns GDDR5.
There are various other additions including MLCC caps and Sanyo POP-CAPs added, well in all fairness every part of the board has been upgraded from the reference and then with a few extras bolted on.
The main kick of course comes from the small overclock to 950 MHz from 822 MHz (one of the largest overclocks of the GTX 560’s so far), the memory has also been tweaked up a nice 10% giving an effective 4,400 MHz.
All in all a nice and very powerful customisation, but why white?
