    Yes, I was thinking the same as well, been looking for the price of the SilenX water block posted some days ago, but couldn't find it, is this BFG card more expensive than a stock 8800GTX + a SilenX water block?

    Been looking forward to change all of my PC's components for next year, and there's a good possibility I'll get one of these babies in Q107 I would like to know which water cooling solution would be better as I heard the G80 reaches over 80 degrees celsius with stock cooling :)

    Well from the looks of it the block is better then the Silenx water block posted a few days ago. This block appears to be all copper(they way it should be) unlike the Silenx block which was aluminum+copper. Though without having more details that is really the only thing I see that it better, for all I know the BFG block could have horrible flow.

    This a is a block worth using.

    The SilentX as noted above is Copper+Alu, you don't wanna know what happens when you put a hybrid block in your loop
