    Point of View seems to have struck gold with its association with the TGT overclocking team, with the introduction of what they claim to be the "fastest Fermi around". The Point of View TGT GeForce GTX 480 Beast is essentially a top-tier, hand-tested NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 graphics card with a custom-designed full-coverage water block, and a bleeding-edge profile packed into its BIOS. The card is clocked at 810 MHz (core), 1620 MHz (CUDA cores), and 950 MHz (3800 MHz GDDR5 effective) memory. The water-block is carved out of a single piece of nickel-plated copper, with acetal top, and is originally manufactured by Innovatek. As with every other GeForce GTX 480 card, this one is DirectX 11 compliant, and packs 480 CUDA cores, and 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory over a 384-bit wide memory interface. The TGT GTX 480 Beast is priced at €671. A review can be found at the source.

    Crap OC on a watercooled part.

    Couldn't agree more. My card does 913mhz with 1125mV, so if that card can't go past 895mhz with 1138mV then something is wrong; they should probably leave the memory at stock before trying to reach the highest core, memory overclock yields to no performance gains anyway, maybe 0.5fps in my experience.

    that's no water anymore, that's liquid nitrogen required!

    Wrong, My GTX 480 @ 900 doesn't break 65C in Furmark on water with a MCW60.

    Which is your voltage for that 900mhz clock?

    That watercooled part is crap? I thought it actually looked good.

    Exactly hell when you buy an non WC gpu with an oc there sometimes only 50mhz bump from stock, why do you expect a stellar oc on this just because it has a waterblock, if you want to oc to its max then I am sure you could get it higher than this without breaking a sweat.

    This seems pointless IMO.
