    EVGA is proud to announce the availability of the EVGA Hydro Copper Waterblock for the GTX 285 graphics card. With this product, EVGA continues to show that it cares about its buyers and wants to offer them premium products only. The Hydro Copper design consists of a full cover copper water block with black acetal top that cools the card's core, memory chips and power regulators. Also included are 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch barbs for maximum compatibility with all water loops. The EVGA Hydro Copper is offered both as standalone water-block (Part Number: 200-CU-HC85-B1) or coupled with an EVGA GeForce GTX 285 graphics card (Part Number: 01G-P3-1290-AR). The combo variant comes with the card overclocked to 720 MHz/1620 MHz/2772 MHz core/shaders/memory. Both products are available for pre-order now. The card and the block are priced at $549.99, while the Hydro Copper waterblock alone costs $129.99.

    yep from guru3d :


    "Normal desktop usage: With a proper liquid-cooling setup at idle you can expect a temperature of below 35~40 degrees C (104 degrees F).

    Stress: once we push the GPU to 100%, the temperatures remain low and settle at 45-50 Degrees C (122 degrees F). Fantastic to see. Bear in mind that the final temperatures are highly dependant on your liquid cooling setup and environment. In a hot summer, your coolant temperature can be slightly warmer as well, thus so will your GPU temperature."
