"The E760 has been given a cosmetic makeover and looks quite striking compared to the E758/E759", so what are those cosmetic differences between the E760 and the Classified E759 (Limited Edition) that makes it "quite striking"? Except for the NF200 the E760 and E759 looks the same.
Apologies, it's a typo on my part. The E760 Classified has been given a makeover compared to the E758 that I reviewed previously and not the E759.
Oh ok! Do you have any problems with the psu and the Classified? I've read a lot of that @evga forums.
What sort of problems would you/the forums mean? I had a problem in the sense that I don't have a PSU with 24+8+8 pin motherboard connectors (just the usual 24+8) and plugging in three or four graphics cards requires a huge number of eight and six pin PCIe connectors but everything appeared to work absolutely fine.
Mostly cold boot problem (a lot of psu models are "incompatible" with the board, if something like this could happen...), in fact there's a post dedicated to post which psu works withe the Classified, which ones have issues and finally, which ones doesn't get along with it.
I had no such problems with my Listan Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 650WOddly enough I have had trouble in the past with models based on AMD 780G were it turned out that the PSU I was using (an Antec as I recall) was too powerful for the board and I had to step down to a 450W PSU.
