    Expreview has obtained some information on a future Zotac product that will use a reference GeForce 8800 GT PCB with Samsung 1.0ns GDDR3 memories and Nippon Chemi-con(NCC) capacitors, instead of the present Qimenda GDDR3 memory chips. Scheduled to be available in late November, the card will be factory overclocked to 700/2000MHz (core/memory) and will probably feature stand alone water cooling.

    Massive overkill? Considering that the 8800GT doesn't really run hot. Generating as much heat as a 8600GTS... approximately. I suppose its a good solution, thanks to the 5'25 bay radiator, making it more convenient.

    At 700Mhz, it gets a little warm. Besides better cooling=more OC headroom.

    Good point. Didn't notice that. Buy aftermarket ram sinks, perhaps?

    Would any of them fit under there? Maybe like basic zalman ones, if you cut the fins of a bit. Someone wanting a silent version without the DIY-attitude will surely like it. I propably would too, but price will be too high (compared to air) :)

    Without a serious volt mod, this is a HUGE waste.

    You will never even get to 800Mhz.

    Is there anyone selling Zotac cards in the U.S.? I have never seen them in Newegg or ClubIT.

    With prices gouging of the 8800GT I've seen this past few days, I just hope this card isn't as expensive as an stock GTX, 'cause that would make this card totally worthless...

    Zotac is still pretty new.
    So I think it will be a little while before they're cards are relativley common in the market.
    Thier version of the 8800GTX was one of the best in 3Dmark 06 amongst other GTXs so were not looking at another budget house here.

    Anyway
    Looks like a bragging right card like the 8800Ultra Leviathan.

    Zotac. . . sounds more like a pill company than a GPU house.
