Thanks VW! Your rigs are just awesome, under construction or not. It was actually your forum post a while back with a title to the effect of "Octo-core GPU cruncher" that got me interested in SETI@Home and crunching applications in general. I was amazed to see people building amazing multi-GPU Sli behemoths for the sole purpose of providing the computing power to SETI and other projects.
Well I think it just adds 12v to the pcie slots and clean 12v power for some stability, maybe, it's the same idea that the Asus Rampage III-V motherboards have, except they have the plugs built in, instead of one added on. As cards go it's pretty darned small too, here's a intro on the card from EVGA and they sell it there too, $9.99 and the card has been around since December 2010, Hexus mentioned the card too and here's a YouTube video on the card.
