    Right on the heals of AMD announcing the availability of the ATI Radeon HD 3870 earlier this month, CoolIT Systems debuts the third installment in the Reference Series line of liquid cooling systems designed to quietly and effectively cool Advanced Micro Devices’ highly anticipated performance graphic cards, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2. In recent testing, the liquid cooled cards were stably clocked up to over 900MHz core clock speed and the memory pushed to 1GHz with no thermal issues.

    “We’re extremely excited about the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 as it sets a new standard in high definition gaming performance leadership for AMD” said Dr. Gamal Refai-Ahmed, AMD Fellow and Chief Thermal Architect, AMD Graphics Product Group. “Using AMD’s micro-channel technology in a closed loop liquid cooling design, CoolIT is once again enabling users to exploit the full potential of 55nm ATI Radeon HD 3800 series architecture while still maintaining a single slot form factor.”


    Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems comments “We are proud to successfully, leverage the micro-channel technology developed at the AMD thermal laboratory in Toronto in our solution. The cooling system for this card is extremely sophisticated given that we are cooling what amounts to a full CrossFire set-up on a single card. When you consider that most cards having only 1 GPU are typically taking up 2 PCIe slots compared to the CoolIT solution which not only delivers extremely effective cooling and higher clock speeds but also reduces the thickness to a single slot the combined CoolIT and AMD offering represents tremendous value.” He added, “We recently benchmarked this card and were able to hit over 23,500 in 3D Mark 06, which makes this, by far, the fastest video card/cooling combination we’ve ever tested.”

    that is very slim. would be great if this card could do quad crossfire with these on each card.

    It's pretty nice, but it looks as tho it may be pretty restrictive. Any word on the I.D. of the "tubing"?

    I hope it's 1/2" inner diameter....doubtful, by the looks of the barbs in the pic, they appear to be 3/8 at the most 7/16...that is just a guess though.

    It looks as though you can change the GPU blocks,wonder if they have play in the rubber connectors to add T.E.Cs under the blocks:rockout:
    I hope they plan on painting it some other color.
