EVGA Launches GeForce GTX 295 CO-OP Edition and Proper Cooling for It

Also announced this weekend was EVGA's GeForce GTX 295 CO-OP Edition (PN: 017-P3-1295-AR) which represents NVIDIA's first single PCB dual-GPU video card with EVGA descent. Again, this card combines two 55 nm GT200 GPUs onto a single PCB, comes with 1792 MB of onboard DDR3 memory and even more it's QUAD SLI ready. For the CO-OP Edition EVGA has imprinted 576 MHz GPU clock speeds and 2016 MHz effective clock speed for the memory. Outputs are standard and only two in the form of DVI-I connectors. The card is still on hold and not in stores, but the price one should pay for it is $529 USD.

Without further delay EVGA also issued a full-cover waterblock only for the single-PCB GTX 295 CO-OP card. The EVGA GTX 295 CO-OP Hydro Copper waterblock (PN: 200-CU-HC95-B1) is constructed from a massive copper baseplate and sealed from an all black top. This block cools everything that needs cooling on the PCB and will cost you $129.99 USD. Again like in most cases, the Hydro Copper block for GTX 295 CO-OP ships with both 3/8-inch & 1/2-inch fittings for different watercooling loops.

CO-OP Edition?

That's even worse than FTW Edition.

Do you mean to say that this "CO-OP" edition video card is going to be cooperative, unlike all the rest of the video cards ever made, which instantly kill your rig and send back power surges to the main circuit breaker?

Or it won't work in a single card configuration, which forces you to buy two cards.

Or, the power leads for the PCI-E connectors aren't switced around in such a way that causes the card to breifly glow dull red until it eventually explodes, carving out the letters "FU" in the side of your case, which sometimes sends a charge up your monitor connection, causing the monitor to leap into the air and fall on your head, then melt all over your face.

Then the power surges go all the way to your local nuclear powerplant, blow it up, causing futher surges which travel across undersea wires, frying every datacentre in the world, and causing an instantateneous blackout worldwide :laugh:

–noun
1. an ancestral line; line of descent; lineage; ancestry.
2. a genealogical table, chart, list, or record, esp. of a purebred animal.
3. distinguished, excellent, or pure ancestry.

For those who think "crysis" is the correct spelling of the word "crisis".

Also there's nothing to suggest this card won't overclock well. It has the same power circuitry as the dual-PCB version. Temperatures aren't anywhere as bad as you'd imagine them to be.

In fact temperatures are looking good: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-295-single-pcb-review/7

Wow, that looks pretty good for the way the fan is set up. I was afraid that the idle would be somewhere in the 50c.. Well, If I got it, it probably would.. lol..

Gotta wait for this baby to come out! :rockout:
