    Last Saturday we brought you the first pictures of a watercooling setup that it's obvious target is the OEM market. Now the VR-Zone reveals two more closeups of this particular card and a few more technical details. The stock air cooler will allow the user to clock the graphics core up to 850MHz, whereas the watercooled one will hit it's limit above that.

    Ugly as hell, but the beauty it hides is wonderful.

    I agree with you hat. I don't care what the inside of my computer looks like, just how it performs.

    fugly .... sorry but i have seen many water blocks and that is the ugliest of them all ........ actually the only ugly one i have ever seen ................ ofcourse the card is awesome but , atleast nvidia had nice looking and better designed waterblocks for their 8800 gtx .......... :nutkick: ..... the sheer size of that thing also hints how hot that thing will be running , no wonder they got a tank sized block right on top of the gpu.

    P.S the piping in the second picture is so poor , because of design that its actually bent while attaching to the main block ..... i mean did these guys just slap something on for the sake of it . sheesh.

    To take this to the next level,..I have NEVER got that sexy hardware deal!!
    I guess I am old fashioned,but when I think of sexy I think of sex. And not with hardware,but
    with a woman.
    Now I can see wanting to have cool looking hardware in a case with a window,that is normal.
    I even think this water-block is cool looking in a "Terminator-utilitarian" sort of way.

    It depends on the person, some like it to look kool ( means that u sit next to it for an X amount of hrs a day :laugh: ), and some others who only want to see the results. :)
