    I would like if some watercooling manufacturer steals the shroud idea (and makes it universal) for VRM and Memory cooling so you can go universal + shroud with low rpm fan.
    Boom, instant waterblock availability for custom SKUs.

    Add $150 and you got a decent starter loop for your CPU/GFX! They really target n00bs :shadedshu

    You can use any of corsairs or antecs water cooling stuff and connect that to the gpu, along with a bracket and a 92mm fan for cheaper. The red mod, and probably this, keeps your gpu at around 60c during load.

    There is a bracket dwood makes, from overclock network, that you can buy and attach an an h50. The antec 620 is the better/easier choice though.

    Is it just me, or did Arctic cooling used to be known for making cheap products that performed well?

    ( AC Freezer 7 pro springs to mind)

    Used too.. I've not like'd them since they did the 2900XT cooler which was made to perform.

    Now they just expensive and cheaper made.. So no it's not just you.

    I wasn't sure if I should post a link to another forum in this instance.
    For a single card, the red mod is great price/performance solution. I was going to do it but then found an artic accellero for cheaper. I kinda wish I just got the antec 620 and bracket.

    Guilty as charged. Not really a noob, but lazy. :nutkick:
