    The NDA for the R600 was finally lifted around an hour ago and manufacturers are already spreading the news. Danger Den is first here to show their upcoming R600 full size water block. As the HD 2900 XT draws a lot of power (around 215W AMD/ATI announced) a water block does make a lot of sense. The cooler is two parted, along with the GPU chip, the memory and voltage regulators on the fron, it cools the memory chips at the backside of the card as well.
    The name of that cooling beast and it's price is still to be uncovered, check back this week, we will have the scoop then.

    I need to get some more tubing as well, which isn't cheap. I'm trying to get some of the Tygon R1000 super flexible stuff, but it's hard to find it in short lengths.

    Why not use something similar to a Maze5 with ramsinks?

    Doesn't work on the core.

    Every review I've seen so far claims the die is offset from the height of the shim, actually indented. So to use a cooler from a previous generation, you'd need to mill out space for the shim.

    Hey d44ve, i'm after some 1/2" ID, 5/8" OD. Probably 2-3 Meters, but shipping from Florida might be a bit costly =/.

    Yeah, that block is sweet. I love the way it's all machined out of one type of metal. Those aluminum/copper ones corrode badly and gunk up your water.

    It was straight forward once I got the loan of my bro's drill, just took it really slow and not to big drill bit so there was no chance of cracking the pcb, I was rather chuffed with my efforts :toast:

    Still, bigger balls than BASE jumpers to do that to an expensive card
