Nice crowbar they included there. :lol: They really went all the way with the PCB design, probably to make up for the fail of the GTX 590's design.

Is it bad that I want one simply because it needs to be opened with a crowbar?

Thankfully they haven't repeated the mistakes done with GTX590s.
2 of these can run any game for more than next 4 years or so.
