    Looks like a low end copy of the Sapphire Toxic ATI X1900XTX. Both would be better if you could mount the Tide Water cooler on its side in a 3.5" bay instead of taking up a PCI/PCI-E slot.

    How about asus had bought the actual water cooling units in mass bulk from thermaltake and slap their own labels and sold it with a modified 88's?. That is still a thermal take unit, therefore no lawsuits or what not.

    Yeah, this is just a TideWater modified with Thermaltake's latest waterblock for the G80s. The TideWater is pretty weak already, and the Thermaltake waterblock for the G80s is far from the best available on the market.

    Nice, but the single slot gpu water cooler sapphire had packaged with there x1950xt looked better. Wished sapphire would've sold it without the card.

    The Sapphire "cool blue" looks awsome!! The asus looks just like the Tidewater, they could have printed something on the case!!

    I Agree, this is almost like a dual slot card, no difference really

    The cooling difference it makes I feel doesn't justify the garbage way it looks or the amount of space it takes up. Though I still don't fully understand Watercooling....i'll have to look into it more one of these days.
