Koolance Ready with Radeon HD 5970 Water-Block

PC water-cooling specialist Koolance is ready with its water-block for the ATI Radeon HD 5970 dual-GPU graphics card. The Koolance VID-AR597 water-block provides full-coverage to the obverse side of the PCB, covering all essential components such as the two AMD Cypress GPUs, the ATI/PLX bridge chip, the VRM areas, and some of the memory chips. From the looks of it, users will have to retain the back-plate for cooling memory chips on the reverse side. The block material is nickel-plated copper, the plating minimizes oxidation of the block, some parts of which are constantly in contact with the water/coolant. It is expected to be available in three days from now, priced at US $140.

Useless.

The new Vapor chamber implement in the 5970 cooler is more than enough.

Really? Because it seems that the 5870 end up clocking a bit better.

For stock clocks any factory cooler should be good enough, waterblocks aren't for stock clocks ever though. With a normal 5870 overclocking is nice, but with a 5970, I would feel bad not OCing it, because they underclocked it, still got to OC it 125mhz just to get back the performance they took from anyone who buys it (which is fine because that allows them to lower the cost).

They clocked it down because of absurds TDP values.

yeah this is good if the card has ability to voldmod easily (which it does as it comes with software)... this block will let you get over 1GHz on both cores without a problem.

When buying a dual GPU card, who worries about TDP?

Fibber. Unless by "worry about", you mean make it as ridiculously high as possible without catching everything in the rig on fire. :D
