    CoolIT Systems, the leading innovator in liquid cooling technology, announces the Dual Drive Bay VGA Cooler designed to aggressively cool AMD’s new ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 Graphics card. The unique form factor enables extreme computing performance for PC Enthusiasts and Gamers. In recent testing, the liquid cooled cards were stably clocked up to 880MHz (13.5% Increase) core clock speed and the GDDR5 memory pushed to 1GHz (11% increase).

    "The liquid cooling technology that AMD co-developed with CoolIT provides superior cooling protection for users who want to operate their ATI Radeon graphics processors at high clock speeds for extended periods of time,” said Dr. Gamal Refai-Ahmed, AMD Fellow and Chief Thermal Architect, AMD Graphics Product Group. “By delivering an innovative, compelling solution inside a unique form factor, CoolIT helps enable ATI Radeon graphics processors to perform at high levels.”

    Geoff Lyon, CEO of CoolIT Systems comments “As the technology continues to evolve in advanced GPU technology, the value of efficient liquid cooling translates directly to the performance gains demonstrated in our lab” He added, “We recently benchmarked this card using 3D Mark Vantage and increased the Graphics score from X7125 at stock settings to X8148 which represents a performance increase of well over 10%”

    The Dual Drive Bay VGA Cooler for HD 4870 X2 ATI Radeon Graphics cards will be available in September from www.coolitsystems.com. Pricing is TBD.

    I hope not cause that's pretty bad ocing for tec. as it is a 13.5% oc seems pretty crappy to me for a watercooler. but maybe their rads just suck.

    the barbs look narrow to me, maybe just the pic tho. Id personally wait for something from dangerden, that is basically 12 pounds of pure copper lol

    im looking to just swap out the dangerden 2900xt waterblock for a one for the x2 when i can finally afford one.

    if ya got the room tho, maybe 2 seperate waterblocks on seperate loops :) that would keep the temps down ;)

    I personally wouldn't buy from CoolIT I came to them and asked about there Boris Case for use in my product line and the guy i talked to was highly rude and when i mentioned i was looking at procuring a large amount of their cases he was instantly nice and went to the extent of calling me on my cell phone...after that i haven't even looked back at them for cooling solutions for my personal computer or that of my customers considering that they would have either called me and i called CoolIT or they called CoolIT themselves. I'm glad they are looking at the higher end cards but i think i will wait for EK, Dangerden, Silverprop, Swiftech, or D-Tek. Also from the look of it the flow on that card looks like it is really bad 90 angles all over the place.

    I'd rather just use 2 universal blocks and some ramsinks. First off, you wouldn't have the heat from the mem and vregs dumping into your loop, lowering your gpu clocks, and second, you wouldn't have to replace your block every time you upgraded your card.
